Allergic rhinitis (Hayfever)
Rhinocort is sprayed into the nose to help prevent and to treat allergic rhinitis (hayfever), which is an inflammation or swelling of the nose lining (which may cause blockage, runny nose, itching and/or sneezing). This is often, but not always, due to an allergy to something in the air (eg pollen, dust mites).
You may have symptoms only during spring or summer. This type of allergy is generally due to various pollens. Some people may experience symptoms all year round. This is usually caused by house dust mites, pets or moulds.
Rhinocort is also used to treat nasal polyps, which are small masses of tissue that grow from the nose lining.
Rhinocort contains budesonide. This belongs to a family of medicines called corticosteroids, which are used to help reduce inflammation.
Budesonide 32 mcg/spray
Directions For Use
You need to prime a bottle if it's brand new or if you haven't used it for two consecutive days. To prime the bottle the first time, shake gently, remove the protective cap, hold the bottle firmly and pump for 8 sprays. The pump is now ready to use.
If not used for more than two consecutive days, keep pumping until a fine mist appears. If you don't use it for more than two weeks, rinse the spray tip and then re-prime until a fine mist appears.
In order to treat and prevent hayfever in adults and children (6 years and over) you may use up to 256 micrograms every day by spraying:
TWO sprays into each nostril in the morning, or ONE spray into each nostril in the morning and ONE spray into each nostril in the evening
After your hayfever has improved, the dose may be reduced to the lowest dose that relieves your symptoms. This may be ONE spray into each nostril in the morning.
It may take up to two or three days (in rare cases up to two weeks) of using Rhinocort before you notice any improvement in your symptoms.
Do not exceed 4 sprays in total each day.
Nasal Polyps in adults (18 years and older):
The usual dose of Rhinocort is 256 micrograms every day. This is given by spraying:
ONE spray into each nostril in the morning and ONE spray into each nostril in the evening.
*Not to be used in children under 6 years of age.
