Some like it “dry”!
For allergy sufferers over 12 years old, there are now 2 corticosteroid nasal sprays that are “dry” rather than “wet.” These 2 dry mist sprays are Qnasl® and Zetonna.® Corticosteroid nasal sprays are the considered the most effective treatment for allergic rhinitis. Frequently the greatest challenge in treating chronic conditions such as allergies is continuing to take a medication for weeks, months or sometimes for years.
The more tolerable a medication is, the more likely good adherence to the medication will occur. Since 1996, only “wet”, watery corticosteroid nasal sprays have been available—until now. Patient preference is a large factor in obtaining good outcomes. Similarly, the most expensive medication is the one that is bought, but not used as directed! You have choices….talk to your doctor.
