Flonase Nasal Spray is a prescription medication indicated for the treatment of nasal symptoms associated with perennial nonallergic rhinitis in adult and pediatric patients aged four years and above. 

Flonase belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids and works directly in the nasal region. It functions by inhibiting multiple inflammatory allergic substances, thereby alleviating a range of severe allergy symptoms, including nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and a runny nose. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Flonase Nasal Spray and every time you get a refill, thoroughly peruse its patient information leaflet and medication guide. Do not hesitate to consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist for questions and clarifications. 

The dosage of Flonase Nasal Spray is individualized based on the patient’s age, medical condition, and response to the treatment. If given a prescription different from the standard dosing regimen provided here, adhere to the instructions of your physician. 

The usual suggested initial doses of Flonase Nasal Spray are: 

  • For adults: 2 sprays per nostril once daily, equivalent to 200 mcg daily. 
  • For adolescents and children aged four years and above: 1 spray per nostril once daily, equivalent to 100 mcg daily. 

Flonase Nasal Spray is intended for intranasal use only. Do not ingest the spray, and exercise caution to prevent accidental exposure to your mouth or eyes while spraying. 

If Flonase Nasal Spray is newly purchased, not used for one week or more, or when the nozzle has been recently cleaned, priming the nozzle is necessary.   

Here are the steps to follow for priming: 

  1. Gently shake the bottle and remove the green cap. 
  2. Direct the bottle away from your face and press the white lid to initiate the spray. 
  3. Prime the lid by pumping it until a fine mist emerges. 
  4. If no mist appears after six pumps, the nozzle may be obstructed, requiring cleaning before use. 

After the nozzle has been cleaned and primed, the nasal spray is ready for use. Here are the steps to follow for administration: 

  1. Blow your nose gently to clear your nostrils. 
  2. Insert the nozzle tip into one nostril and use your finger to close the other nostril. 
  3. Aim the nozzle slightly away from the center of your nose, press the white nozzle, and inhale the mist gently.  
  4. Exhale through your mouth. Repeat the process if your dosage requires two sprays. 
  5. Repeat the entire process in the other nostril. 
  6. Clean the nozzle using a tissue and then put back the green cap in its place. 

For optimal efficacy, use Flonase Nasal Spray regularly at the same time(s) of the day daily.  

Adhere to the precise guidelines for using Flonase Nasal Spray. Avoid spraying more or less of it or using it more frequently than instructed by your healthcare provider.
