Overview

Introduction

Rhinase Nasal Drops is a steroid. It relieves the symptoms of allergic rhinitis such as runny nose, sneezing and sinus discomfort. It works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) and allergies, thus relieving the discomfort and irritation in your nose.

Rhinase Nasal Drops should be used as advised by your doctor but to get the full benefit 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. It may take a few days for the spray to take full effect. If you do not see any improvement in your symptoms after a week you should talk to your doctor.

The most common side effects of Rhinase Nasal Drops include sneezing and nasal irritation. Talk to your doctor if they do not go away or get worse. Using corticosteroids like Rhinase Nasal Drops may 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 using the 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.
