What is Beconase Spray used for?

Beconase aqueous nasal spray is used to relieve the symptoms of hayfever and other allergies which affect the nose and sinuses (known as allergic rhinitis).

Each bottle of Beconase nasal spray contains 200 doses of spray, with each spray delivering 50mcg of beclomethasone dipropionate.

You can order Beconase nasal spray online from Prescription Doctor's UK pharmacy. Simply fill out the online medical form to begin your order.

If your order is approved before 3pm weekdays, our UK pharmacy can dispense and dispatch your item the same day via a discreet, next-day delivery service.

What are the symptoms of hayfever?

The symptoms of hayfever can include:

  • Blocked sinuses
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Itchy, red or watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat, mouth, nose and ears
  • The loss of your sense of smell (anosmia)

Hayfever can also cause asthma symptoms to worsen. This can cause:

  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tight chest
  • Wheezing

How common is hayfever in the UK?

It is estimated that around a fifth of the UK population suffers from hayfever. 90% of people with hayfever are allergic to Rye and Timothy grass pollen, while 25% are allergic to tree pollen.

It has also been found that those allergic to birch pollen are more likely to be allergic to apples, cherries, peaches and plums as these fruits contain a protein which is similar to birch pollen.

The type of pollen you are allergic to can have an effect on when your symptoms develop and how long your hayfever symptoms last. Hayfever season starts in late March and lasts until September.

If you are unsure what type of pollen you are allergic to, speak to your doctor. Different kinds of pollen are present at different times of the year. So when your symptoms develop in the year may be an indication of what types of pollen affect you.

How does Beconase work?

The active ingredient of Beconase nasal spray is a naturally-occurring corticosteroid (steroid) called beclomethasone dipropionate.

Beclomethasone relieves inflammation in the nasal passages, brought on from hayfever and other allergies.

When an allergen, such as pollen, dust or animal dander, enters the body through the nose, the immune system releases chemicals which cause inflammation.

When taken regularly through the nose, beclomethasone dipropionate prevents inflammation in the nose.

According to the NHS, corticosteroids are more effective at preventing and relieving nasal symptoms than antihistamine tablets, though they can take longer to start working.

How long does Beconase take to work?

It may take a few days of taking Beconase regularly before you notice an improvement in your symptoms. It's important to keep using Beconase as prescribed, even if you don't notice an improvement right away.

Corticosteroids do not provide immediate relief from the symptoms of hayfever but do offer relief when used regularly for a period.

How do I use Beconase?

For adults, the typical dose of Beconase is two sprays in each nostril, twice daily - equivalent to 400mcg a day.

It is best to take Beconase in the morning and evening.

Before you use Beconase nasal spray for the first time, you will need to prime it.

To prime your Beconase nasal spray:

  1. Hold the bottle upright. Support the base of the bottle with your thumb and place your index and middle finger on either side of the collar of the nozzle.
  2. When priming, hold the Beconase nasal spray away from you to avoid accidentally spraying the suspension into your eyes.
  3. Keeping the thumb still, press down with your fingers to pump the spray.

If the spray does not work, the nozzle may be blocked. Consult the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine for information on how to clean your Beconase nasal spray.

Never try to unblock or enlarge the spray hole with a pin or sharp object, as this can damage the way Beconase spray works.

To use your Beconase nasal spray:

  1. Shake the bottle and remove the cap from the nozzle
  2. Gently blow your nose.
  3. Close one nostril by pressing your finger against the side of your nose.
  4. Insert the nozzle into the opposite nostril.
  5. Tilt your head forward slightly and begin to slowly breathe in through your nose.
  6. While breathing in, press the collar of the nasal spray down firmly to administer Beconase.
  7. Remove the nozzle from your nose and breathe out through your mouth.
  8. Repeat steps 5 and 6 to administer a second spray of Beconase in the same nostril.
  9. Repeat steps 3 through 7 to administer the Beconase spray in the other nostril.
  10. When you have finished using your Beconase nasal spray, wipe the nozzle carefully with a clean tissue or handkerchief, and replace the dust cap.

If your symptoms do not improve after 7 days of continuously using Beconase, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

How do I clean my Beconase nasal spray?

After each use, you should wipe the nozzle of the nasal spray with a tissue or handkercheif to keep it clean.

You should clean your Beconase nasal spray once a week. You may need to clean it more often if it becomes blocked.

To clean your Beconase nasal spray:

  • Remove the dust cover
  • Remove the nozzle by pulling the white collar upwards.
  • Soak both the dust cover and nozzle in warm water.
  • Shake any excess drops off the nozzle and dust cap and leave them to dry in a warm place.
  • Reattach the nozzle and dust cover to the bottle and prime your Beconase nasal spray before using it again.

Do not use solvents or high temperatures to clean the nozzle as this may lead to damage.

What should I do if I forget to use Beconase?

If you forget to use Beconase, skip the missed dose and take your next dose as you normally would. Do not use more of this medicine to make up for a forgotten dose.

What should I do if I use more Beconase than I should?

If you use more Beconase than you should, inform your doctor. Using more Beconase than advised can increase your risk of side effects or cause your symptoms to worsen.
