Recently the FDA approved Nasocort (triamcinolone) nasal spray for OTC use, without a prescription. This is a nasal steroid spray used to treat seasonal and perennial allergies.
It is used to treat sneezing, congestion and runny nose. Side effects may be nasal bleeding.
They may be used with antihistamines, but every patient is different and some may need one agent or both.
The medication is approved for age 2 and older, but you should speak with your pediatrican or allergist before giving it to your child.
It is approved for year round use, for people allergic to dust, molds and pets, but many patients do not find it adequate for total symptom relief. Your allergist may suggest allergy shots (immunotherapy) to modify and prevent disease progression.
Your insurance will likely not cover it given that it is over the counter now.
You should continue to see your allergist to manage your symptoms over time and to diagnose what you are allergic to. Proper care is more than using medication, it is important to recognize triggers and to prevent further complications of allergies.
