Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Nasacort? Nasacort Allergy 24HR is an over-the-counter intranasal steroid (INS) used to treat nasal symptoms of indoor and outdoor allergies (perennial and seasonal allergic rhinitis). When Nasacort is used as directed, it can temporarily relieve these symptoms of allergic rhinitis: sneezing, runny nose, nasal itching, and congestion.
Is over-the-counter Nasacort the same strength as the original prescription Nasacort AQ? Yes, Nasacort Allergy 24HR and Nasacort AQ are the same medicine. Nasacort Allergy 24HR gives you the same prescription strength as Nasacort AQ, without the prescription.
Will Nasacort make me drowsy? No, Nasacort Allergy 24HR is formulated to be non-drowsy.
How is Nasacort different from antihistamines? Oral antihistamines work in the early stages of the allergic cascade to target the body's histamine response to allergens. They do a good job treating mild to moderate nasal allergy symptoms, but oral antihistamines do not treat nasal congestion. Intranasal steroids like Nasacort work differently than antihistamines because they stop more of the body's chemical responses that cause nasal allergy symptoms. This interrupts inflammation in the allergic cascade, treating both early- and late-phase reactions to address all allergic rhinitis symptoms, even congestion, for 24 hours.
Will OTC Nasacort be covered by insurance plans? Nasacort Allergy 24HR is an OTC medicine, and OTC medications are not typically covered by insurance plans. However, insurance plans differ for each individual, so be sure to check with your insurance company.
Will Nasacort have an unpleasant smell? No, Nasacort Allergy 24HR is scent-free.
