Question on medication.?
What is the typical onset for Flonase? How does Flonase differ from Vancenase AQ? Thanks Asked by Orlando Whittington 1 year ago.

Flonase and Vancenase AQ are both corticosteroids, whose indication is the reduce rhinitis (stuffy nose) and asthma maintenance (more on that below) Flonase = flucitasone Vancenase AQ = triamcinolone Flucitasone and Triamcinolone are comparable, middle potency glucocorticoids. The induction times (or onset) of the two steroids have a very low acquity index, as do all steroids. Acquity index means how quickly a drug takes to exert its effects after dosing, and I would say steroids take 12, if not 24 hrs for induction. In English, this means steroids are *never* indicated as 'rescue inhalers' where one needs fast relief from an asthma attack -- they are *much* too slow. Beta agonists such as albuterol are fast onset and are used for that purpose However, steroid inhalers are excellent maintenance drugs, meaning they are to be taken routinely, every day at a set time to maintain consistent blood levels -- that is the way they work best. Studies have shown that the reported Rhinitis Index Score -- the subjective relief score by patients using the drugs are 4.60 and 4.20 respectively, and is not statistically significant -- meaning they are equally effective clinically (see: nih.gov) and interchangeable.
