Product 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. 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 rash, hives, itching, erythema, nosebleeds, nasal dryness, nasal irritation, dry throat, and throat 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.

Uses of Rhinase Nasal Drops

Benefits of Rhinase Nasal Drops

In Sneezing and runny nose due to allergies

Rhinase Nasal Drops reduces swelling and irritation and relieves symptoms such as blocked or stuffy nose, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes. It is less likely than some other medicines to cause high blood pressure or changes in your sodium or potassium levels. This medicine works in your nose to block the effects of substances like pollen, dust mites, and mold that can trigger allergic reactions. This will make it easier for you to go about your daily activities. It may not work straight away, so use it regularly as prescribed to get the most benefit. If you see no improvement after a week, talk to your doctor.

In Treatment of Asthma

Rhinase Nasal Drops works by reducing and preventing swelling and inflammation in the lungs. It is known as a “preventer” and is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma, such as tightness in chest, wheezing, breathlessness, and coughing. This allows you to carry out daily life activities more easily and confidently. This drug does not stop an asthma attack that has already started. To control an ongoing asthma attack, use a “reliever” inhaler. Inhaled medicines will not work properly if the inhaler is not used correctly. Ask the nurse or doctor for the right technique.
