- A minimum of two consecutive years of previous history of seasonal allergic rhinitis

to the pollen/allergen in season at the time the study is being conducted.

- A score of at least 6 on the reflective Total Nasal Symptom Score (rTNSS) and a

minimum score of at least 2 for "nasal congestion" and a minimum score of at least 2 for one of the remaining 3 symptoms representing the 12hours prior to the screening visit.

- An average composite score of at least 6 on the rTNSS and a minimum score of at least

2 for "nasal congestion" and a minimum score of at least 2 for one of the remaining 3 symptoms representing the last 3 days of the 7-day placebo lead-in period before the randomization visit and the morning of the first day. of the randomization visit. Exclusion Criteria:

- Negative or lack of documented skin allergen test (performed within the previous 12

months) to at least one of the allergens in season at the time the study is being conducted.

- Patients who suffer from chronic signs and symptoms of Perennial Allergic Rhinitis,

unless the investigator assesses that the patient's current signs and symptoms are a clear exacerbation of Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) rather than chronic PAR.

- Patients who suffer only from perennial allergic rhinitis or seasonal allergic

rhinitis to a different allergen than that in season at the time the study is conducted.

- Previous history of less than 2 years of seasonal allergic rhinitis to the

pollen/allergen in season at the time the study is being conducted.

- Any patient who meets the minimum rTNSS requirements at the start of the placebo

lead-in period but no longer meets the requirements prior to the randomized active treatment period of the study cannot continue in the active treatment period.

- History of asthma over the previous two years that required chronic therapy.

Occasional acute or mild exercise induced asthma will be allowable on the condition that the treatment of the attacks is restricted to beta-agonists only.

- Patients with nasal conditions, including infectious rhinitis, rhinitis medicamentosa

or atrophic rhinitis.

- Clinically significant nasal deformity or any recent nasal surgery or trauma that has

not completely healed.

- Sinus infection within the previous 30 days or history of reoccurring sinus

infections.

- Patient has started immunotherapy or changed their dose of immunotherapy within 30

Candidiasis infection.

- Upper respiratory tract infection within the previous 30 days.

within 30 days of the study start.

- Use of the reference product, Nasonex® within 3 months of the study start.

- Use of intranasal or systemic second-generation anti-histamines within10 days of

enrollment.

- Use of intranasal cromolyn within 14 days of enrollment.

antagonists or other nasal decongestants within 3 days of enrollment.

- Use of any tricyclic anti-depressant within 30 days of enrollment

- Patients with attention-deficit disorder being treated with methylphenidate
