What Is Fluticasone Furoate Used For?

Fluticasone furoate is used for the treatment of common nasal allergy symptoms, as well as eye allergy symptoms. It is approved for treating seasonal and perennial allergy in both adults and children. Occasionally, healthcare providers may recommend the medicine "off-label" for other purposes. Off-label fluticasone furoate uses may include the treatment of nasal polyps and non-allergic rhinitis.

Fluticasone Furoate Uses: An Overview

Fluticasone furoate (Veramyst™) is a prescription medication approved for treating seasonal or perennial (year-round) nasal allergy symptoms in adults and children as young as two years old. Additionally, it is the first prescription nasal spray that has been shown to improve eye allergy symptoms, such as eye itching, redness, or wateriness.
Allergies are the immune system's specific reaction to a normally harmless substance, such as pollens, certain foods, or medicines. Allergies can either be seasonal or perennial. Seasonal allergies (such as hay fever) occur at specific times of the year, while perennial allergies can occur throughout the year. Allergies can affect various parts of the body, and allergy symptoms are particularly common in the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Nasal allergies mostly affect the nose and eyes. Nasal allergies are also known as allergic rhinitis. Symptoms of nasal allergies may include:
  • Nasal congestion
  • A runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itching nose, eyes, ears, or throat.
Combined with strategies to minimize a person's contact with allergens, allergy treatment can make life bearable for even the worst allergy sufferer. Treatment often includes allergy shots or medications. Fluticasone furoate is a particularly useful allergy medicine for treating allergy symptoms that primarily affect the nose.
