Beconase Allergy is used in the prevention and treatment of common symptoms of allergic rhinitis, and other airborne allergies.
Beconase Allergy Nasal Spray is used to prevent and treat allergic rhinitis and perennial rhinitis in adults. When you have rhinitis, the inside of your nose becomes swollen and itchy. This often occurs during the early summer when it is caused by breathing in pollens from grasses or trees and is called hayfever. Some people get problems all the year round and this is called perennial rhinitis. It may be due to house dust mites or animals such as cats or dogs. When you spray Beconase Aqueous Nasal Spray into your nose, it helps to relieve the itching, sneezing and blocked or runny nose.
How to use Beconase Allergy Nasal Spray: Adults: The usual starting dose is two sprays into each nostril twice a day. The most you would take in a 24 hour period is normally 8 sprays (4 sprays per nostril). As your symptoms become better, your doctor may advise you to use a lower dose of one spray into each nostril twice a day. If your symptoms get worse again your dose may be increased back again to the starting dose. Your doctor will prescribe the lowest dose of Beconase Aqueous Nasal Spray that will best control your symptoms. Not recommended for children under 18. Do not take a larger dose or use your nasal spray more often than your doctor advises. It takes a few days for this medicine to work and it is very important that you use it regularly. Do not stop treatment even if you feel better, unless told to do so by your doctor. If you also have itchy, watery eyes you should tell your doctor. He may give you an extra medicine to treat your eyes. Be careful not to confuse them, particularly if the other medicine is eye drops.
