Frequently Asked Questions
Why use a nasal spray when there are lots of tablets to help treat hayfever symptoms?
Unlike antihistamine tablets, which are often more suitable for intermittent forms of hayfever, Beconase® has a proven corticosteroid that delivers ongoing relief from moderate-to-severe forms of both intermittent and persistent allergic rhinitis.
Do I tilt the bottle when spraying into the nostril?
Tilt your head forward and keep the bottle upright.
How long do I use the spray?
Your pharmacist or doctor will tell you how long to use this product for. Do not use for more than 6 months without their advice.
Will Beconase® provide fast relief.
It reduces inflammation and swelling in your nose but it may take a few days to significantly improve symptoms.
How do I use the spray?
Start to breathe in slowly through your nose. While you are breathing in, spray a fine mist into your nostril. Breathe out through your mouth and then repeat to take a second spray in the same nostril. Do exactly the same for the other nostril.
