In brief: Depends on what…

…symptoms you're treating.
Astelin is an antihistamine used for seasonal allergic rhinitis & for vasomotor rhinitis. Side effects may include drowsiness, nasal irritation, sneezing, headache, nausea, fatigue, nosebleed, & more. Oral non-sedating antihistamines may control your symptoms just as well.
