Astelin(azelastine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication approved to treat sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and nasal itching (known medically as rhinitis). The medication is approved to treat these symptoms when they are due to either seasonal allergens (known as seasonal allergic rhinitis) or to other irritants (known as non-allergic rhinitis or vasomotor rhinitis).
It is made by MEDA Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Flonase (fluticasone propionate) is a prescription medication approved to treat sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and nasal itching (known medically as rhinitis). It is approved to treat these symptoms due to either allergies (known as allergic rhinitis) or other causes (known as non-allergic rhinitis).
Flonase is made by GlaxoSmithKline.
They are almost the same with regards to what they do ( both are nasal sprays), but the chemical compounds or composition of the drugs are different.
I hope this helps you.
