Description

How does Beclometasone work?

Beclometasone contains the active ingredient beclometasone dipropionate which is part of a group of medicines called steroids (also called corticosteroids). The steroids work by reducing inflammation, swelling and irritation in the nose and help to alleviate itching, sneezing and blocked/runny nose.

Beclometasone prevents and treats:

  • Inflammation in the lining of your nose (rhinitis) due to seasonal allergies, such as Hay fever.
  • Inflammation in the lining of your nose (rhinitis) due to year-round (perennial) allergies, such as animal allergies.

If you are prone to suffering from allergic rhinitis, there are symptoms associated with this that can affect you both in the day and in the night, impacting on your life. Using Beclometasone nasal spray will help to relieve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis and other allergies. It works by being absorbed into the nasal passages which obstruct their ability to produce an allergic response.

It is recommended to start taking the spray 2-3 days before it is needed so that you benefit from its full effect.

How much to use

  • The usual starting dose is 2 sprays into each nostril- twice a day with no more than 8 sprays within 24 hours.

As you start to feel become better and your symptoms lessen, your doctor may advise that you use a lower dose such as one spray into each nostril twice a day. However, if your symptoms begin to get worse, your dose may increase back to the original starting dose.

Please do not use a larger dose or use your nasal spray more often than instructed by your doctor.

To benefit from the maximum effects of Beclometasone, the spray should be used frequently while you are exposed to the allergy triggers so that your symptoms are kept under control.

Follow the instructions provided with the nasal spray and ensure to shake the bottle gently before each use.

Hay fever

Hay fever is a common allergic reaction, occurring throughout the year but particularly worse during the months of March to September. It appears as a reaction to warmer, humid or windy weather when pollen counts are high from grass, trees, and weeds.

Symptoms of hay fever include:

sneezing and coughing
a runny or blocked nose
itchy, red or watery eyes
itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears
loss of smell
pain around your temples and forehead
headache
earache
feeling tired

If you have asthma, you might also experience:

a tight feeling in your chest
shortness of breath
wheezing and coughing

Whilst Hay fever shares some symptoms of a cold, it can last a lot longer, for weeks or months.

How to treat hay fever yourself
There is at present no cure for hay fever and no way to prevent from suffering with it however there are things you can do to help alleviate your symptoms when pollen counts are high

These include:

putting Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen
wearing wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen getting into your eyes
showering and changing your clothes after you’ve been outside to wash pollen off
staying indoors whenever possible
keeping windows and doors shut as much as possible
vacuuming regularly and dusting with a damp cloth
buying a pollen filter for the air vents in your car and a vacuum cleaner with a special HEPA filter

Things to avoid:

cut grass or walk on the grass
spending too much time outside
keeping fresh flowers in the house
smoking or being around smoke – This will make your symptoms worse
drying clothes outside – they can catch pollen this way
letting pets into the house if possible – they can carry the pollen indoors.

Side Effects

Eye problems, such as pain or blurred vision Nasal problems, such as pain or persistent bleeding
Irritation of the nose or throat Noticing unpleasant tastes or smells

These side effects are rare, affecting up to 1 in 1000. If you are concerned about any of these side effects, or if the medicine affects you in any other way, stop using it and speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
