Expert Advice

  • Your doctor has prescribed Axunil Nasal Spray to treat a runny or stuffy nose caused by allergies (allergic rhinitis).
  • Since it's a nasal spray, it does not expose the rest of your body to the medicine and hence gives you minimal side effects.
  • It's most effective to start using it a few days before an expected contact with the allergen. 
  • Inform your doctor if you have an infection, injury, or had a recent surgery of the nose as Axunil Nasal Spray can increase the risk of bleeding, fungal infections in the nose and delay wound healing.
  • Side effects such as mood changes or stomach problems can happen when you start taking Axunil Nasal Spray. Inform your doctor if this bothers you.
  • Do not stop taking Axunil Nasal Spray suddenly without talking to your doctor first as it may worsen your symptoms.

FAQs

Q. How does Axunil work?

Axunil is a corticosteroid, which works by decreasing the inflammation caused by allergies. It reduces inflammation by blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause allergic symptoms such as swelling, redness, and pain.

Q. My friend developed a severe allergic reaction when she started Axunil. Could it be due to Axunil even though it is used for allergy purpose?

In very rare cases, Axunil can cause serious allergic reactions such as rash, hives, breathing difficulty, swelling of the face, throat, and tongue. It may also cause low blood pressure which may further cause lightheadedness and the patient may even faint. If these symptoms occur, you should immediately contact your doctor because such allergic reactions can be life threatening.

Q. For how long should I take Axunil nasal spray?

It is recommended that you take the nasal spray as long as you are exposed to the allergen. Consult your doctor if you have any concerns.

Q. Does long-term use of Axunil nasal spray have any side effects?

Usual doses of Axunil nasal spray can be tolerated by most people for long periods of time. But, few people may develop nose bleed, hole in nasal cartilage, and visual disturbances due to cataract or glaucoma if they take Axunil nasal spray for a long time. Moreover, high doses also tend to increase the risk of weakening of bones (osteoporosis) and diabetes.

Q. What is thrush? Can Axunil nasal spray cause thrush?

Thrush is a fungal infection of the nose and throat caused by candida. It can occur with the use of Axunil nasal spray. You should thoroughly rinse your mouth after using nasal spray to avoid getting fungal infection. If you experience any redness or white colored patches in your nose or mouth, inform your doctor.

Q. Can I take Axunil for runny nose and sneezing due to common cold?

No, Axunil is only meant for allergic rhinitis and should not be taken for common cold. Symptoms of common cold can be due to viral infection and this medicine does not cure such infections. Therefore, you may not benefit from Axunil.
