Beconase product information

Beconase nasal spray contains an active ingredient called beclometasone dipropionate.
Beclometasone belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroid. It helps to reduce inflammation during an allergy and to relieve allergic symptoms.


How to take

The usual dose for hay fever is 2 sprays into each nostril once daily. Once symptoms are controlled, you may be able to reduce the dose to 1 spray each nostril. For specific directions, refer to the patient information leaflet.

You will usually feel the effects within 8 to 24 hours of use, although it may take 2 to 3 days for the full effects to be seen.
If your symptoms do not improve after 14 days, you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice.


Side effects of Beconase

Like all medicines, Beconase might cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.

Side effects are rare and include: nosebleed (minor, particularly with continuous use) and blurred vision. Side effects are usually mild but if you are concerned, speak to a doctor or pharmacist.

If you experience severe allergic reaction (very rare) such as difficulty breathing, swelling of eyes, nose or face, or an itchy rash, you should stop using Beconase and seek urgent medical advice.

For a full list of side effects, please refer to the patient information leaflet attached below.
