Good news for those who suffer from nasal allergies (Allergic Rhinitis), the nasal steroid Nasacort is over-the-counter. This is exactly the same drug as the prescription strength Nasacort AQ, the difference is the price tag. The prescription version runs roughly $80 for the 120 spray bottle while the over-the-counter version is under $20 for the 60 and 120 spray bottles.
Keep in mind that your medical insurance will not cover over-the-counter medications so as an alternative you can have your doctor prescribe the generic version of Flonase for under $20.
