Beconase is a nasal spray which is used to relieve the symptoms of nasal allergies such as hay fever.
These symptoms can include:
Hay fever can also cause asthma symptoms to worsen. This can cause:
It is estimated that around a fifth of the UK population suffers from hay fever. 90% of those with hay fever are allergic to Rye and Timothy grass pollen, while 25% are allergic to tree pollen. It's 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 active ingredient of Beconase is a corticosteroid (steroid) called beclomethasone dipropionate.
This is a naturally occurring hormone which is commonly found in the adrenal glands. It is used in Beconase due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
When an allergen, such as pollen, dust or animal dander, enters the body through the nose, the immune system issues a response to rid the body of the threat. Cells within the body release chemicals to fight the foreign bodies. These chemicals cause the symptoms of hay fever such as a runny nose and watery eyes.
Beclomethasone dipropionate inhibits the cells' ability to produce these chemicals, preventing an allergic reaction when the allergen is present.
Corticosteroids do not provide immediate relief from the symptoms of hay fever but do offer relief when used regularly for a period. According to the NHS, corticosteroids are more effective at preventing and relieving nasal symptoms than antihistamine tablets.
For adults, the typical dose is two sprays in each nostril, twice daily. For the best effect, take Beconase in the morning and the evening.
Before you use Beconase nasal spray for the first time, you will need to prime it. To prime your nasal 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:
If your symptoms do not improve after 7 days of continuously using Beconase, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

If you notice any side effects, whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, report them to your doctor. You can also report them online via the Yellow Card Scheme.
If you experience a severe allergic reaction after using Beconase, seek immediate medical attention.
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.
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.
Stopping treatment early can cause your symptoms to come back. You should not stop using Beconase unless your doctor gives you explicit permission to.

If your doctor tells you to stop taking Beconase, take the remaining medicine to your pharmacist, so they can properly dispose of it for you.
