Flonase is an effective and safe medicine which provides a strong anti-allergic action. Flonase contains the active ingredient Fluticasone.

Fluticasone is the most studied product among all nasal corticosteroids, and its safety is confirmed by the medical studies and FDA.

Flonase is released in the form of the nasal spray which acts to the inflammatory processes in the respiratory tracts. It provides antiedemic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergic action.
When the active ingredient fluticasone reaches the mucous membrane of the nose and respiratory tracts, it blocks the production of histamine which causes edema of mucosa.

Flonase relaxes the muscle fibers in the walls of the respiratory tracts and prevents spasms.

Flonase acts locally and due to the convenient intranasal use it provides a faster therapeutic effect than the systemic antiallergic drugs. In 10-15 minutes after the application of spray, the patients do not experience sneezing, itching in the nose, stuffy nose, lacrimation is reduced, and there is no feeling of pressure in the eyes and nose.

Due to the local action of Flonase, it does not cause systemic side effects and is well tolerated. Unlike most hormone anti-allergic medicines, Fluticasone does not influence on hypothalamus, basal gland, and adrenal.
