HOW DOES
AFRIN®
STACK UP?

BEAT THE PILLS. BREATHE
FREELY FASTER.

Oral medications like Sudafed take time to kick in. Cold medicines, cough syrups and antihistamine pills have to be absorbed before they work.2

But breathing more freely? Nobody has time to wait for that.

Afrin® lasts 12 hours, working directly on nasal membranes and providing rapid nasal congestion relief.

TIME TO TRY A NASAL SPRAY?

AFRIN®  WORKS
IN SECONDS.

NASACORT AND
FLONASE CAN TAKE
DAYS. 

(That’s right, we’re calling out the competition.)

With Flonase or Nasacort, you wait days3 or even a week4 for full nasal congestion relief.

Afrin® starts fighting nasal congestion from colds or allergies in seconds, giving relief that lasts for 12 hours.

AFRIN® IS NOT A
STEROID - LIKE
FLONASE AND
NASACORT 

Only with daily use do these brands relieve allergy symptoms.5

Reach for Afrin®, for nasal decongestion due to cold or allergies, when you need it.

AFRIN® TREATS
NASAL CONGESTION
DUE TO COLDS OR
ALLERGIES.

FLONASE AND
NASACORT?
ALLERGIES ONLY.

Whether it’s nasal congestion due to cold or allergies, just two to three sprays per nostril help you breathe more freely. It’s that easy.
