How long before I'll get relief from nasal steroid sprays?

ANSWER

While these drugs start working within a few hours, you might not notice the full benefit for several days to weeks. You can take them with other allergy medications if needed. Your doctor might ask you to stop the other drugs to see if the nasal steroids work by themselves, though.
