Floresp Nasal Spray


Overview

Introduction

Floresp Nasal Spray is a medicine used to treat and prevent problems in your nose like sneezing and runny nose due to allergies. It can be used to treat conditions which may be seasonal (hay fever) or year-round (blocked nose and itching). It works by reducing swelling and irritation in your nose.

You should always use Floresp Nasal Spray as advised by your doctor. To get the full benefit of the medicine you should take it regularly. Normally, you should blow your nose gently before using it, keep one nostril closed while applying the medicine into the other and then sniff hard to make sure it reaches deep into the nose. Then repeat for the other nostril.

The most common side effects of this medicine include nosebleed, headache, unpleasant taste, and nasal irritation. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about side effects or they do not go away. Using corticosteroids like this medicine 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’s best not to smoke.

Before using this medicine, you should let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. If you use this medicine for a long time, your doctor may want to carry out certain medical tests to check your progress.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. How does Floresp work?

Floresp 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 Floresp. Could it be due to Floresp even though it is used for allergy purpose?

In very rare cases, Floresp 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 Floresp?

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 Floresp have any side effects?

Usual doses of Floresp 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 Floresp 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 Floresp cause thrush?

Thrush is a fungal infection of the nose and throat caused by candida. It can occur with the use of Floresp. 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 Floresp for runny nose and sneezing due to common cold?

No, Floresp 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 Floresp.
