Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare efficacy improvement of combination therapy group and mono therapy group by percent change of 4 TSS from baseline to end of treatment by investigator. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare percent change of evening reflective 4 TSS from baseline to end of treatment by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of instantaneous 4 TSS from baseline to end of treatment by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of evening reflective nasal congestion score from baseline to end of treatment by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of instantaneous nasal congestion score from baseline to end of treatment by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of evening reflective 5 TSS (5 TSS - runny nose, itchy nose, sneezing, ocular symptom, nasal congestion)by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of instantaneous 5 TSS by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of evening reflective 4 TSS from baseline to each day by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare percent change of instantaneous 4 TSS from baseline to each day by using patient diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare improvement of QoL from baseline to end of treatment, by using RQLQ (Rhinoconjunctivitis Quality of Life Questionnaire). [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare responder rate (> 50% evening reflective 4TSS improvement) by using patient's diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
