Flonase is now available Over The Counter:

https://www.flonase.com/

Nasacort became OTC last spring, and now Flonase is also OTC. Life keeps getting better for allergy sufferers.

Expensive, but in a sea of ceder pollen, its been a wonder. No stuffy nose, no headach, no feeling like a zombie from even small doses of benedryl. I notice I can smell more things now. I may do more outside this year.

Stuff is great. Flonase and Claritin when both were by prescription only had no co pay as hubbie worked at the pharma that made them...when Claritan went OTC almost fainted at price

ughh. Im glad it works for some people. I took flonase for about 6-7 months and it caused more problems than it solved. Headaches, acne, anxiety, depression, fat face, high blood pressure......At least now people dont have to go and get a prescription.

I recently started Flonase, and I'm not sure it really works for me. Seems to me I took it several years ago, and stopped because my nose started bleeding while on it. Now that it is OTC I see my prescription, really isn't any cheaper than just buying it. What a ripoff.

Stuff works great too. I hate taking pills and it's perfect if you just need temporary relief, assuming you're not dealing with some series allergies.

It's still marginally cheaper by prescription with our insurance.

I don't use it consistently and I probably should. It reduces the inflammation enough that my sense of smell comes back.

Google anxiety and panic attacks after using these. All the symptons that maverick said. It's been five days off of it and I'm still jittery. Never again.

I took it for 7 months and it ruined me. Never again. When it gets bad, I take nasonex for about 2 weeks, without any problems.
