So glad Nasocort is approved for OTC. I've suffered with Rhinitis for more years than it has been a diagnosis (lol). Allergy meds, even then "non-drowsy" orals cause drowsiness, dizziness, euphoria or a wierd feeling. OTC Nasacort is good!

OTC Nasacort Approved
By Kristin J. Kelley
The FDA has approved the first glucocorticoid — triamcinolone acetonide (Nasacort Allergy 24HR) — for over-the-counter treatment of nasal allergy symptoms. The once-daily spray is indicated for patients aged 2 years and older.
The dosing instructions differ among age groups, says the FDA. Additionally, the drug's label warns that growth in some children could be slowed. Pediatricians should be consulted if children are going to be treated for more than 2 months per year.
In August, an FDA advisory panel voted 10 to 6 to make Nasacort available without a prescription.
