Azelastine Fluticasone Nasal Spray
Flutecasone is used to treat allergic and non-allergic nasal symptoms that occur throughout the year and during certain seasons, such as runny or stuffy noses, itching, and sneezing. Additionally, it can aid with allergy eye symptoms like watery, itchy eyes. This medicine is a member of the corticosteroid drug subclass. It functions in your nose to lessen swelling and inhibit the effects of allergens (such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and mould).
Read and abide by all instructions on the product package before using the over-the-counter remedy if you choose to self-treat. Read the Patient Information Leaflet before using fluticasone and each time you get a refill if your doctor has recommended it to you. Ask your physician or pharmacist if you have any queries.
As prescribed by your doctor or the product label, use this medication once or twice daily in the nose. Avoid spraying into your eyes.
Blow your nose slowly before taking this medication. Before each usage, give the container a light shake. If you are using the bottle for the first time or if it has been a week or more since your last use, make sure you follow the instructions on how to prime the bottle properly.
Rarely, it is possible that corticosteroids given in the nose will be absorbed into the bloodstream. This can lead to side effects of too much corticosteroid. These side effects are more likely in children and people who use this medication for a long time and in high doses. Tell your doctor right away if any of the following side effects occur: unusual/extreme tiredness, weight loss, headache, swelling ankles/feet, increased thirst/urination, vision problems.
A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
Your age, health, and treatment response all factor into the dosage. Never use this medication in excess of what is recommended in terms of dosage, frequency, or duration. Your condition won’t get better any faster, and your chance of experiencing negative effects will rise. To begin with a greater dose of this medication for the first few days until you start to feel better, then decrease your dose, may be the recommendation. To reduce the chance of side effects, children might need to take this medication for a shorter period of time. Read the instructions on the packaging carefully if a child is using the OTC medication to determine how long to give it to them for and when to consult a doctor.
