Buy Nasacort Nasal Spray Online in the UK
Triamcinolone acetonide is the active ingredient present in Nasacort. This is a form of steroid because it is a member of the corticosteroid drug class.
It is administered as a nasal spray to adults and children 2 years of age and older to treat the nasal symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
Sneezing, itching, and having a blocked, stuffy, or runny nose are nasal symptoms of allergy. They may be brought on by the following:
- Animal fur or house dust mites. This type of allergy can happen at any time of the year and is called ‘perennial allergic rhinitis’.
- Pollen. This type of allergy, such as hay fever, can be caused by different pollens in different seasons of the year. This is called ‘seasonal allergic rhinitis’.
This medication may not immediately relieve your symptoms and only works when used regularly. Some patients see the relief on the first day of treatment, but for others, it may take three to four days.
Use this medication exactly as directed by your doctor at all times. If you're unsure, ask your doctor or chemist.
Regular use is necessary for the medication to be effective. It may take 3 to 4 days before you start to feel better from your symptoms.
Amount of Nasacort to take (both adults and children over 12 years)
The typical initial dose is 2 sprays in each nostril per day. If allergy symptoms are under control, the dose may be tapered to 1 spray in each nostril per day.
