In brief: The compound

Flonase is Fluticasone Propionate and veramyst is fluticasone furoate.
They have changed the "side chain" of the steroid molecule making it potentially a more active compound. It binds to the receptor more "tightly" and may last longer. Thus you may have better results with veramyst vs. Flonase.

In brief: Nasal steroids

Flonase is fluticasone propionate, a generic and much longer used medication.
Veramyst is fluticasone furoate, a much newer and different formulation of fluticasone.
