This medication is for use in the nose, usually once a day or as directed by your doctor. Avoid spraying this medication in your eyes. Gently blow your nose before using this drug. Shake the container well before each use. Follow the instructions to learn how to properly prime the spray pump if you are using it for the first time, and to learn when you need to reprime it if you have not used it regularly.
To use the spray, remove the protective cap and insert the applicator tip into your nostril. Close the other nostril by pressing with your finger, and tilt your head forward slightly. Press down firmly on the pump to deliver the prescribed number of sprays. Do not spray directly onto the middle wall of your nose (the septum). Breathe in gently through your nose and out through your mouth. Repeat in the other nostril. Wipe the applicator tip and replace the protective cap.
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Younger children require a smaller dose and need help from an adult to use this medication.
