About

What is Flixonase?

Flixonase comes in two types: Flixonase allergy nasal spray and Flixonase nasules, or nasal drops. Both contain fluticasone propionate, which is an anti-inflammatory medicine and a corticosteroid.

What is Flixonase used for?

Flixonase nasal spray helps treat hay fever symptoms such as sneezing, nasal blockage and swelling associated with a runny nose. It is also used to treat rhinitis, a condition where your nose is constantly blocked or runny. Flixonase nasule drops help treat nasal polyps and nasal obstruction.

How does Flixonase work?

Flixonase contains a medicine known as a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are naturally produced by your body to help reduce inflammation and aid the healing process. The corticosteroid in Flixonase is fluticasone propionate. It is an anti-inflammatory and reduces nasal blockage, swelling, itchiness and sneezing.

How long to use Flixonase?

The first time you use Flixonase, it can take a few days to start working. Your doctor will advise you on how long to use Flixonase. Each bottle of Flixonase nasal spray contains 150 doses. This will last at least thirty days if you use two sprays in each nostril once a day. However, Flixonase nasule drops typically come in a pack of 28 or 84 individual containers. This may last several weeks, depending on your prescription. 

Where to buy Flixonase?

You can buy Flixonase from Dr Felix after a short two-minute online consultation. A qualified doctor will check if it’s suitable for you and you will receive Flixonase nasal spray or Flixonase nasule drops in discreet packaging straight to your door. Otherwise, you will need to book an appointment to see a doctor and get a prescription for Flixonase spray or Flixonase drops. The prescription will enable you to buy Flixonase from a pharmacy.

These ingredients are not known to cause a severe allergic reaction that will result in hives/rash, facial swelling, itchy throat, and trouble breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms please get immediate medical attention. If you have a known hypersensitivity to any of these ingredients, please avoid using this medication.

Dosage

Flixonase nasal spray is used once a day by adults and children over 12 years old. Every morning, use two sprays in each nostril. For children aged four years old to eleven years old, use one spray in each nostril once a day. Your doctor may increase or decrease the number of Flixonase nasal sprays you need to use to keep your symptoms under control.

Flixonase nasule drops come in individual plastic containers. Adults and children over 16 years old can use this medicine once or twice a day. Typically, you open one plastic container and apply half the liquid in one nostril and the other half in your other nostril. Your doctor may change how often you use Flixonase nasule drops according to your treatment plan.

  • Sneezing
  • Unpleasant taste or smell
  • Nose bleeds

Treatment Options

Alternatives to Flixonase

There are other treatment options available from Dr Felix. These include alternative corticosteroid nasal sprays such as Beconase, Avamys and Nasonex. You could try a combination therapy such as Dymista, which contains a corticosteroid and an antihistamine. Or you can use a nasal spray that does not have a corticosteroid, such as Rhinolast which contains an antihistamine as its active ingredient.

If you do not want to use a nasal spray, there are tablets you can swallow, but they may not have the same effect as a corticosteroid nasal spray. These tablets include Neoclarityn, Loratadine, Cetirizine, Telfast and Fexofenadine

Discuss the best treatment options for you with your doctor or pharmacist.

How to prevent hay fever at home

Here are five helpful tips you can use to reduce the effects of hay fever:

  1. Check the weather forecast to see if the pollen count will be high that day. Avoid going outdoors for long periods when the pollen count is high.
  2. Apply petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) to the inside of your nostrils before going outdoors. This will help catch pollen particles in the air and stop pollen from entering your nasal passage where they cause sneezing, coughing, a sore throat, a runny nose and nasal blockage.
  3. Wear a hat to prevent pollen from getting caught in your hair and wear wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen from getting in your eyes.
  4. Get into the habit of washing your hair and your clothes when you come home after being outdoors. This stops pollen from lingering around your face where it can irritate your eyes, nose and throat. It also prevents pollen from spreading indoors.
  5. Keep your windows closed and don’t keep freshly cut flowers indoors to prevent the spread of pollen.
