Flonase is available to purchase on Amazon now as well.
Flonase and Nasacort both are steroid nasal sprays used to treat allergies in patients. It is similar to prescription steroid nasal sprays like nasonex, omnaris, ceramist, etc. It is also the second steroid nasal spray made OTC in the United States which can be both a blessing as well as a curse.
With Nasacort and now Flonase going OTC which will certainly make it more convenient for patients, I also anticipate that the other prescription steroid nasal sprays including omnaris, nasonex, qnasl, zetonna, veramyst, etc will become much harder to prescribe due to insurance requiring patients to use OTC nasal sprays first. Worst case, insurance may even simply stop paying for the prescription steroid nasal sprays.
After all, this is exactly what happened with prescription reflux and anti-histamine medications.
