    Had to switch to this as all the other nose sprays contain Cortizone which has given me cataracts!!! Apparently it is now listed as a warning on them. This product is the ONLY one that I know of that works WITHOUT steroids in it!

    I added a bottle of this to my last order of Flonase just to try it. It leaves a strong chemical taste in the back of my throat and makes me sneeze, so I will stick to Flonase.
