Nasonex nasal spray can be used on a daily basis. Take two sprays into each nostril once a day. If your symptoms improve, you may be able to reduce the Nasonex dosage to one spray per nostril per day.
Before the first use
Before using your Nasonex spray for the first time, you have to “prime” the bottle. Gently shake the bottle, take the dust cap off and pump the spray ten times until it releases a fine mist. If you haven’t used the spray for more than 14 days you need to repeat this process before using Nasonex again.
How to use the spray
- Shake the bottle and take off the dust cap
- Gently blow your nose
- Tilt your head forward and hold the bottle upright
- Close one nostril and put the nozzle of the spray bottle into the other nostril
- Breathe in slowly through your nose and pump the spray once while breathing in
- Breathe out through your mouth
Repeat these steps to administer a second dose to the same nostril and two doses to the other nostril.
Wipe the nozzle after every use and replace the dust cap when you are finished.
Cleaning your Nasonex spray
The spray needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. To clean your hayfever spray, take off the dust cap and nozzle. Wash and rinse both in warm water, then leave them to dry. Once both parts have dried you can put the spray back together and re-prime it with two sprays to prepare it for the next use.
Please note that you must not insert any sharp objects such as pins to unblock the nozzle - this can damage the spray and result in you getting an incorrect dose with each use.
