Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray Information:

Rhinocort (Generic name: budesonide) is a corticosteroid in a metered-dose nasal spray bottle used to relieve the symptoms of rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal passages resulting in a stuffy or runny nose) caused by seasonal or year-round allergic reactions or too many or overly-sensitive blood vessels in the nose. Each aqua spray delivers 64 mcg of budesonide. It works by reducing nasal inflammation and is prescribed to patients that have not responded to usual therapies. Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray is also used to treat nasal polyps and prevent recurrences of nasal polyps after surgical removal.

If possible, start using Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray before the exposure to allergens for seasonal rhinitis. Improvement of symptoms should be noticed from 2 to 3 days to up to 2 weeks after treatment. After the symptoms have been brought under control, the dosage should be cut back to the smallest amount necessary to control the symptoms.

Have your physician or pharmacist show you how to use the aqua spray bottle. It is important to use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Don’t share this medication with anyone else, as it can be harmful to someone it has not been prescribed to. Store this medication at room temperature; protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray Side Effects:

The most common Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray side effects are dizziness, headache, throat or nasal dryness or irritation, sneezing or coughing. Rinse your mouth if you experience an unpleasant taste after using Rhinocort nasal spray. Many of these side effects will go away as you adjust to the medication. Contact your doctor or pharmacist if they are severe or bothersome. Notify your doctor if you develop sores in your nose; green, yellow or bloody nasal secretions; repeated nasal bleeding or burning; white patches or crusting; a rash, sore throat or fever; unusual tiredness or weakness, changes in vision or behavioural changes (especially in children).

Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray Precautions:

Stop taking the nasal spray and seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction such as swelling of the eyes, throat, or face, a skin rash or hives, wheezing or difficulty breathing. Do not take Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray if you are allergic to budesonide or to any other of the aqua spray ingredients, or if you have tuberculosis or an untreated fungal, bacterial, or viral infection.
