OTC Flonase Expected to Be Available in Early 2015

Released: 08/06/2014   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Manager

The FDA has recently approved Flonase Allergy Relief to be an OTC treatment for temporary relief of symptoms for upper respiratory allergies. Flonase is the first, and only, OTC nasal spray indicated for relief of all allergy symptoms. OTC Flonase is formulated to provide 24-hour non-drowsy allergy relief and will be available at full-prescription strength, beginning in early 2015.

Once OTC Flonase is available, Carlisle Medical will begin contacting physicians to inform them the OTC version is available. Management is our focus, as we are deeply involved in evaluating generic usage, as well as alternative therapies. We provide this on an ongoing basis through our Prescription review service.
