Rhinocort is a glucocorticoid medical product indicated for the treatment of the allergic rhinitis. It provides an anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and immunosuppressive action. The active components of the drug reduce the inflammatory exudation, slow down the release of the mediators of the inflammation, and this plays an essential role in the appearance of the nasal symptoms of the allergic genesis and development of the chronic rhinitis.
Also, the drug slows down the release of the arachidonic acid which affects the appearance of the allergic reaction and relapses of the disease.
Rhinocort is well tolerated during the long-term treatment and does not cause the physical addiction. The therapeutic effect develops in 2-21 days and completely removes the symptoms of the disease and temporarily protects from their repeated appearance.
Directions for the use:
- vasomotor rhinitis
- prevention of the growth of nasal polyp
- non-infectious inflammatory processes in the cavity of the nose
- seasonal and year-round allergic rhinitis
- Rhinocort is indicated for the intranasal introduction and does not require the prescription usage.
- To treat rhinitis the patients are prescribed 2 doses (50 mg) per each nasal passage 2 times a day
- In case of the severe forms of the disease the frequency of the use will be increased up to 3 times per day
- To prevent diseases the maintaining dose is needed – one dose into each nasal passage 2 times per day or 2 doses into each nasal passage once per day.
- The length of the treatment is indicated individually but usually it does not increase 3 months.
- Even if your symptoms have improved and you feel better, it is recommended to have a complete course of the treatment. The weakening of the symptoms is a sign of the drug efficiency and its positive effect. For the complete recovery it is necessary to follow all recommendations indicated in the instruction.
- It is necessary to avoid the area of the eyes because the spray may cause the irritation of the mucous membrane.
- Contraindications for the use are fungous, bacterial, and viral infections of the airways, and hypersensitivity to budesonide.
- If the patient has had surgeries in the nasal cavity, or he/she has trauma of the nose, it is necessary to consult a doctor or pharmacist before using the drug.
- During pregnancy or in the period of the lactation women should use Rhinocort spray with high caution.
- If you feel burning, dryness or irritation of the mucous membrane of the nose, it is necessary to terminate the use of the medication for a short period of time.
