I used to use the steroid nasal spray also, but it stopped being effective for my allergy symptoms (itchy eyes, sneezing, plugged ears, sinus congestion). So now I use a combination of Claritin (antihistamine), Singulair (asthma/allergic rhinitis med - not a steroid), and the Nasal Rescue (made by Peaceful Mountain; I get it at a local health food store) with pretty good results.
