I'm having autonomic testing scheduled. I have to stop Claritin (loratadine) for 3 days. Can I take fluticasone/flonase spray or do I need to stop that too?

In brief: No

Only medications that impair sweating such as tricyclic antidepressants and older antihistamines.
Steriod nasal sprays are no problem.

In brief: Ok to take flonase

You may continue the nasal steroid spray as you were before the testing.
