It takes a few days for this medicine to work. So keep using it, even though you may not feel better straight away. You should use the spray every day.
Preparing the Beconase nasal spray bottle before use
Each spray has a dust cap that protects the nozzle and keeps it clean. Remember to take this off before using the spray. A new spray (or one that has not been used for a few days), may not work the first time. You need to prime the spray by pumping the spray a few times until a fine mist is produced.
Hold the bottle as shown and make sure it is pointed away from you
Put your forefinger and middle finger on the collar either side of the nozzle and put your thumb underneath the bottle
Keep your thumb still, and press down with your fingers to pump the spray. If the spray does not work and you think it may be blocked, you will need to clean it. Never try to unblock or enlarge the tiny spray hole with a pin or other sharp object. This will damage the way the spray works.
The usual starting dose is 2 sprays into each nostril twice a day. The most you would use in over 24 hours is normally 8 sprays (4 sprays per nostril). As you become better, your doctor may ask you to use a lower dose of one spray into each nostril twice a day.
If your symptoms then get worse, your dose may be increased back to the starting dose. Do not use a larger dose or use your nasal spray more often than your doctor tells you.
