However, you do need to declare your Flonase and any other medications to the TSA officers at the checkpoint and let them investigate it.

Some travelers try to bring in different items, as medical necessary products, but remember the TSA guys are experts at what they do.

They may ask you to open the container or even test it for security reasons.

To avoid any weird blinks or problems, make sure you have the original packaging and label of your Flonase, and keep it separate from your other liquids.
