Flixonase Nasal Spray is known as Flonase in the United States. Flixonase (Flonase) makes breathing easier by treating inflamed tissue and relieving swelling in the nose. Flixonase is used for the short-term treatment of seasonal allergies, including seasonal allergic rhinitis or hayfever as it is more commonly known. Flixonase is a convenient and effective daily hayfever treatment. It provides relief from symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, irritated eyes, running and itchy nose. Flixonase contains 50 micograms of Fluticasone Propionate, which is a steroid, per spray. Flixonase works best when used on a daily basis, even if your hayfever symptoms have been reduced. It may take about 4 days until you experience the full benefits of this medication. Flixonase is available in a bottle that contains 120 metered sprays.
Flixonase should not be used by children under 12 years of age unless advised by your doctor or pharmacist.
Adults and children over 12 years of age pump two sprays into each nostril once a day, preferably in the morning. It may take a few days of regular use before you experience the maximum benefit of Flixonase.
If you miss a dose do not take a double dose at one time. If you are close to taking your dose then forget the one that you missed and keep to your schedule. Otherwise, just use the product when you remember. Do not exceed the maximum dosage of 2 sprays per nostril per day.
Carefully read the enclosed leaflet before using. Gently shake the bottle before each use. Remove the large green dust cap from the applicator nozzle. Hold the nasal spray straight upright. The first time the nasal spray is used it will need to be 'primed'. Hold the bottle with your forefinger and the middle finger on the collar either side of the nozzle, with your thumb underneath the bottle. To prime the pump for use, point the nozzle away from you and, keeping your thumb still, firmly press down on the white collar. Keep pumping several times until a fine mist-like spray is released through the applicator nozzle. The nasal spray is now primed and ready for use. It will not be necessary to reprime the nasal spray unless it is disassembled or used infrequently.Once the nasal spray is ready for use, gently blow you nose to help clear the nostrils. Tilt your head slightly forward, close one nostril and carefully insert the nasal applicator into the other nostril. Breathe slowly inwards through the nostril. Hold the bottle upright and press down firmly on the white collar once to deliver the required dosage of spray while you are still breathing in. You now breathe out through you mouth. Now repeat the procedure for the other nostril. After use, wipe the nozzle with a clean tissue and replace the dust cap once you are finished. Store Flixonase below 25 degrees Celsius but do not refrigerate. Protect from direct sunlight and store in an upright position. Discard 3 months after first use.
Maintenance: If the nasal applicator becomes blocked, do not attempt to unblock the applicator with a pin or sharp object as this can damage the spray mechanism. In order to clean, remove the green dust cap and remove the nasal applicator by pulling upwards on the white collar until it comes free. Soak the applicator nozzle and the dust cap in warm water and then rinse them under cold running water. Shake off the excess water and replace the nozzle once it is dry.
