You Can Breathe Easier with Nasonex

Nasonex, a steroidal nasal spray, provides prompt relief for the symptoms of both seasonal and year-round allergies. Taken before symptoms appear, it can also head off trouble before it starts.

Nasal congestion, and all the unpleasantries that come with it, can make an otherwise beautiful day practically unbearable. Sneezing and coughing, combined with an itchy, stuffy, runny nose, can make you miserable. But prescription Nasonex nasal spray can help relieve, and in some cases even prevent, those symptoms and help you breathe easy again.

Nasonex is a once-daily, nasal-inhaled steroid that is approved to help relieve and prevent most seasonal nasal allergy symptoms in adults and children 12 years of age and older.

Is It an Allergy or a Cold?

Sometimes, especially at the onset, it’s hard to know if you’re having an allergic reaction or coming down with a cold, as allergies can trigger many of the same symptoms as a cold or even the flu. But if your cold symptoms last longer than 10 days, you probably are suffering from allergies. With nasal allergies you may have congestion, a runny nose, sneezing, and nasal itching. Here are some guidelines to help you determine what you may be dealing with.

It’s probably an allergy if:

  • You aren’t running a fever.
  • Your mucous secretions are clear and runny.
  • You sneeze rapidly and in multiples, and the sneezing may actually irritate and exacerbate the condition of your nasal passages and throat.
  • Your nose, throat, and sometimes your ears, feel itchy (particularly the palate or roof of your mouth).
  • Your symptoms continue longer than the characteristic duration of a cold, which is normally 7 to 10 days.
  • Your symptoms get worse or better depending on the environment you’re in, or perhaps whether you are indoors or outdoors.
  • Your nose, throat, and ears don’t itch as badly after you take an antihistamine.

It may be a cold or the flu if:

  • You are running a higher-than-normal temperature.
  • Your mucous secretions are not clear and tend to be yellowish.
  • You are experiencing a sore throat.
  • Your symptoms end after 7 to 10 days or even sooner.

Prepare for Pollen Season
