In brief: Nasal sprays
Azelastine- a nasal antihistamine spray.
This is like claritin/fexofenadine and should not make one sleepy fluticasone- a nasal steroid spray. This is usually intended to decrease the symptoms of nasal allergies. While the main indications for both relate to nasal congestion related to allergies, sometimes docs give them for things like ear dysfunction.
