In brief: Equal

When it comes to nasal steroid sprays they are all effective and it typically becomes a "patient preference.
" Flonase smells like flowers and requires a doctors prescription (until spring 2015 when it goes over the counter). Nasacort (triamcinolone) is tasteless and odorless and has been available without a prescription since spring 2014.
