The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Flonase Allergy Relief (fluticasone propionate 50 mcg spray)as an over-the-counter (OTC) treatment for temporary relief of the symptoms of hay fever or upper respiratory allergies.
 
Flonase Allergy Relief is the first over-the-counter nasal spray indicated for relief of all nasal and eye-related allergy symptoms including runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose, nasal congestion and itchy and watery eyes. Flonase Allergy Relief will be available at full prescription strength and to provide 24-hour non-drowsy allergy relief.
 
Nasacort Allergy 24HR and Children's Nasacort Allergy 24HR, an active ingredient Triamcinolone, are available as OTC for temporary relief of the symptoms of hay fever or upper respiratory allergies. The recommended dose is spray 2 (Triamcinolone acetonide 55 mcg spray) times into each nostril while sniffing gently daily. Once the allergy symptoms improve, reduce to 1 spray in  each nostril per day.
