Drug Description

Drug Description:


Zetonna Nasal Aerosol is a medication used to treat nasal symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis, which is inflammation of the lining of the nose caused by allergies.  

The active ingredient in Zetonna is ciclesonide, which is a corticosteroid. When sprayed into the nose, Zetonna helps reduce inflammation in the nasal passages, relieving symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and a runny or itchy nose. 

Use and Dosage 

Zetonna is available in a metered-dose nasal aerosol form and is typically used once a day with one spray in each nostril. It should be administered in the nose as directed by your doctor, usually once a day in both nostrils. 

Gently shake the bottle and prime it with 3 sprays into the air, away from your face. With your head upright insert the tip of bottle into the nostril and press your other nostril closed. Breathe in and spray the medicine into your nose. Use in your other nostril if directed. If the spray gets in your eyes or mouth or on your skin, rinse with water. Do not blow your nose for a few minutes. Do not use more than 1 spray in each nostril daily, as it may increase the risk of side effects.  

After priming the canister, it should only contain 60 doses or sprays. Do not wash or put any part of the Zetonna nasal spray in water. However, if the nasal spray has not been used for more than 10 days, it should be primed again.
