How does Beconase work?
Beconase 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 is used to prevent and treat:
• 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 with 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 Beconase 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. For maximum benefit, Beconase Nasal Spray should be used regularly whilst you continue to be exposed to the rhinitis triggering allergen and help keep your symptoms under control.

Hay fever is usually worse between late March and September, especially when it’s warm, humid and windy. This is when the pollen count is at its highest
Check if you have hay fever
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
If you have asthma, you might also:
have a tight feeling in your chest
be short of breath
wheeze and cough
Hay fever will last for weeks or months, unlike a cold, which usually goes away after 1 to 2 weeks.
How to treat hay fever yourself
There’s currently no cure for hay fever and you can’t prevent it. But you can do things to ease your symptoms when the pollen count is high.
put Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen
wear wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen getting into your eyes
shower and change your clothes after you’ve been outside to wash pollen off
stay indoors whenever possible
keep windows and doors shut as much as possible
vacuum regularly and dust with a damp cloth
buy a pollen filter for the air vents in your car and a vacuum cleaner with a special HEPA filter
cut grass or walk on grass
spend too much time outside
keep fresh flowers in the house
smoke or be around smoke – it makes your symptoms worse
dry clothes outside – they can catch pollen
let pets into the house if possible – they can carry pollen indoors
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.
