Advice needed re Nasal Spray
 
 
My GP diagnosed me as suffering with Allergic Rhinitis. He advised me to use Beconase nasal spray and take one Loratadine tablet a day, then said see how you feel after a week. After reading up on the Beconase Nasal Spray I've found that it's recommended you don't use the spray for longer than 2-3 days running.

Has anyone ever used the spray and should I just use it for 2-3 days or will I be okay using it for the entire week?

Can't you pop into a Chemist for advice?
I have non allergic rhinitis which means i am chock full of mucus all the time.
It's horrendous.

I've been using it for years a couple of blasts each morning each nostril the same on a night. One tablet a day though not the one you said. I think the two to three days scenario will be if you haven't spoken to a doctor which a presume you have as in this Country I don't think you can buy this over the counter. I have another spray as well a steroid spray which name escapes me as a type this. A quick call to the doctor will put your mind at rest though I'm sure you will just gone on using this. The bottle is made to last a month and usually last five to six weeks. Then you're supposed to throw it away and use a fresh bottle

I would take your GPs advice, rather than an opinion offered in a football message board.

I use beconaise from time to time for the same diagnosis.

I use it as and when I feel it is necessary for me. I certainly do not use it all the time. You are best seeking advice from a Pharmacist if you are unsure

I use a over the counter spray for Hayfever... Dr advised me to instead of paying the perscription charge.

I use it most days from spring to september most years without any issues

I've used it on and off for a few years without any side effects.
I suffer from blocked ears now and again accentuated by ear wax etc.
Doc recommended it to me and to help clear out the system as nose / ears all linked etc.
Works a treat for me and use it for a max of about 2 weeks.
I also queried long term use with my doc but he said would be OK as long as not using it continuously.
Of course it all depends on why you're using it and one answer doesn't cover everyone, but I'm OK!
Get it in Boots or Superdrug as cheaper over the counter than a prescription.

Thanks for the replies. I'll pop in to Boots tomorrow morning and seek some further advice, obviously was just a bit worried after reading up on it but seems I'll probably be okay using the spray for the full week.

I've been suffering from nasal congestion terribly the last couple of weeks, haven't been able to smell or taste anything but I've noticed a slight improvement already since I've been using the spray.

I also suffer from allergic rhinitis and sinusitis and have had many different sprays over the years. Apparently using them long term has an adverse effect but I always thought it was months rather than days. I have found that salt water spray is the best and can be used as often as required, using a steam inhaler is good as well.

"After reading up on the Beconase Nasal Spray I've found that it's recommended you don't use the spray for longer than 2-3 days running"

Where did you read that? There's nothing like that in the "Patient Information Leaflet". Most people use this stuff for the entire hayfever season...and longer. I think what you probably read was that it takes 2 to 3 days before there is any effect.

"Beconase Allergy / Hayfever quickly starts to reduce inflammation and swelling in the nose. But for best effect patients should start to use Beconase Allergy / Hayfever two or three days before they expect to get symptoms to prevent them from developing. For full therapeutic benefit Beconase Allergy / Hayfever should be used regularly."[^]

Ah, Beconase is not a decongestant, totally different stuff. It usually takes 2 or 3 days to start working and the manufacturer's guidance is not to use it for longer than 3 months without seeing a doctor.

I don't know about beconase, but I've been using decongestant sprays for years because I struggle to breathe through my nose since I broke it. The doctor said that once you get reliant on the sprays they can actually become the cause of the problem. They also caused me to get a cut in the cartilage in my nose that took forever to get rid of.

Rebound can be a problem with nasal sprays, but I've been using Avamys since February to cure post-nasal drip, with no adverse consequences. Beconase was also prescribed before I switched to Avamys, with no limits on how long I could use it for.

I lost my sense of taste and smell for 10 months about 5 years ago. After a course of nasal drops I then went onto Avamys. 2 snorts each nostril every night for the last 4 years with no side effects at all.

If it's due to just congestion in the nasal passages have you tried the saline sprays available? This might solve the issue without the need for a medicated solution

I'm going to go with Doctor's orders for now and persevere with the Beconase nasal spray, but if I don't notice a big improvement I might try the the saline spray.
