I had the same issue. I take Loratadine (Claritin) daily, but right now it doesn't help. I used to take Flonase in the US as well, but all mine were super expired, so I just emailed my doctor and he sent me a script for avamys, and I have to say it's been working wonders!!!

so - long story short - NO, you need a prescription for most, but at least for me it was just an email to my doctor.
Interesting. I had avamys and as the stuff somehow runs down your throat after shooting it up your nose, I suffered from terrible heartburn and a sore throat. Stopped the moment I stopped with avamys.

Also if you suffer from cataract or glaucoma (and you may not know you do yet) you may absolutely not use avamys.

So make sure you get something that suits you personally from your doctor.
