Telnase is a non drowsy, once-a-day nasal spray that offers 24-hour relief from the symptoms of hayfever (season allergic rhinitis) and perennial allergic rhinitis. Both conditions are typified symptoms such as sneezing, an itchy and runny nose, or by a blocked nose. The difference is that while hayfever is seasonal, perennial allergic rhinitis can be triggered by dust mites or pet hairs that are encountered all year round in some environments. The active ingredient in Telnase is triamcinolone acetonide, which is a corticosteroid, and each bottle of Telnase contains 120 sprays with each spray delivering 55mcg of triamcinolone acetonide.
Telnase should not be used by children under 12 years of age unless advised by your doctor or pharmacist. Adults & children over 12 years of age 2 sprays into each nostril once daily. Reduce to 1 spray when symptoms are controlled. Do not exceed maximum dose of 2 sprays in each nostril daily.
