Drugs Home > Fluticasone Furoate Nasal Spray

Fluticasone furoate (Veramyst™) is a nasal spray available by prescription only. It is approved to treat sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and nasal itching due to allergies (known medically as allergic rhinitis) in adults and children as young as two years old. Some people use it to treat seasonal allergies, while others use it for allergies that occur all year long (known as perennial allergies).
 
To use the nasal spray, breathe in gently while spraying it into your nose. Do not try to inhale it or breathe in too deeply, as the drug works when it comes in contact with the inside surfaces of the nose, not the throat or lungs. As with any medicine, side effects are possible. Some of the common reactions reported with this drug include throat pain, headaches, and nosebleeds.
