Overview

Introduction

Budenase AQ Nasal Spray is used to treat and prevent problems in your nose (rhinitis) which may be seasonal (like hay fever) or year-round (like blocked nose, sneezing and itching). It works by reducing swelling and irritation in your nose and belongs to a group of medicines called steroids.

You should always use it as advised by your doctor but to get the full benefit you should take it regularly. It may take a few days for the spray to take full effect. If you do not see an improvement in your symptoms after a week you should talk to your doctor.

The most common side effects of Budenase AQ Nasal Spray include nasal irritation, nosebleeds, pain or irritation in the throat. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about side effects or they do not go away. Using corticosteroids like may Budenase AQ Nasal Spray make you more susceptible to viral infections, so you should stay away from people who have these infections. In general, you should try to avoid situations which make your symptoms worse (things like pollen and dust mites) and it is best not to smoke.

Before starting to use Budenase AQ Nasal Spray you should let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, discuss the risks and benefits with your healthcare team.
