Expert Advice

  • Your doctor has prescribed NASICURE 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 NASICURE 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 NASICURE NASAL SPRAY. Inform your doctor if this bothers you.
