    Patanase vs. Astepro?
    Aqua14 posted:
    I posted a while back on having problems with a nonstop runny nose and coughing in the morning. Well, I am happy to say that my problem has been solved! Although there were other things I did that helped, the icing on the cake, the thing that really did the trick, was a nasal antihistamine called Patanase. It is really effective for me. What a blessing it is to have normal mornings! I'm loving it.

    My allergist gave me 2 kinds of nasal antihistamines to try, though -- Patanase and Astepro. I decided to use the Patanase first, and since it works so well I'm not sure if I'll try the Astepro next.

    So of course I'm wondering: of those of you who have tried this kind of med, which one works best? And do you have any comments about them? Just curious.

    Thanks for any info anyone can share. Judy

    Hi Judy,

    I prefer the Patanase. The Astepro actually causes congestion for several hours for me. Then I have drainage that tastes saccarin sweet for several hours.

    I am much happier with the Patnase, but it costs considerably more for me.
