Proven Patient-Pleasing Relief

For patients who are frustrated by allergy symptoms including nasal congestion

No 2 allergy patients are alike. For those who need the most effective class of nasal allergy medication,1 Nasacort Allergy 24HR delivers proven efficacy without an unpleasant scent, alcohol, or harsh taste. Nasacort treats both early- and late-phase AR symptoms—including nasal congestion—by treating the inflammation associated with allergic rhinitis.2

Clinically proven to be as effective as Flonase

Single-blind, randomized, parallel-group study of Flonase (200 μg/day, n=147) vs Nasacort AQ (220 μg/day, n=148) in patients with seasonal rhinitis.3


aTotal nasal symptom score is the sum of scores for nasal stuffiness, nasal discharge, nasal itching, and sneezing.

bNeither treatment group was statistically significant vs the other at any time interval during the entire treatment period.

Symptom relief as early as day 1

A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, 3-week study to investigate the efficacy and safety of once-daily Nasacort AQ. Symptom severity of each individual component of the nasal index was assessed on a scale from 0 (absent) to 3 (severe). Patients randomized to the Nasacort AQ group received 220 mcg/day for the first week of treatment and either 220 mcg/day (n=145) or 110 mcg/day (n=142) for the remainder of the study; 142 patients received placebo.4


*It may take up to 1 week of daily use to feel the most symptom relief.

aMeasured before second dose.

Stays where it’s sprayed

Nasacort’s thixotropic formulation contains hydrophilic, high-viscosity solution that adheres to the nasal mucosa,7 which:

  • Allows for contact time with glucocorticoid receptors
  • Resists unwanted clearance from the nasal passages
