What is Beconase?

Beconase is a steroid nasal spray, used to treat nasal symptoms of hay fever (allergic rhinitis) and allergy. Symptoms that Beconase can help to treat include:

  • Stuffy or blocked nose
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy eyes
  • Watery eyes


Beconase works by reducing swelling and irritation in the nasal passage, brought about by allergens such as pollen and dust.

How long does Beconase take to work?

It will take a few days of consistent to use to feel the effects of Beconase. It can take around two weeks to feel the full effects of Beconase.

You should start using Beconase a few weeks before the hay fever season, to avoid experiencing symptoms.

Beconase dosage instructions

Use two sprays into each nostril, twice daily. Once symptoms are controlled, reduce dose to one spray into each nostril twice daily.

Do not use more than 4 sprays in each nostril daily.

How to use Beconase nasal spray

Before using Beconase, you should shake the bottle and give it a few pumps. This is known as priming.


  1. Remove the cap and shake the bottle
  2. Blow your nose
  3. Close one nostril with your finger
  4. Place the nozzle into the other nostril
  5. Gently breathe in and press the bottle to release a spray
  6. Breathe out from your mouth
  7. Repeat this process into your other nostril


Can I use Beconase every day?

Beconase is considered to be a safe and well tolerated treatment. You can safely use Beconase every day, for long as your symptoms persist.

Beconase ingredients

Active ingredient: beclometasone dipropionate 50mcg

Inactive ingredients: Sodium carboxymethylcellulose, dextrose, microcrystalline cellulose, polysorbate 80, purified water, phenylethylalcohol and benzalkonium chloride.

Beconase nasal spray side effects

Like all medication, Beconase can cause side effect, although not everyone gets them.

Side effects of Beconase include:

  • Sneezing
  • An unpleasant taste in your mouth, or the back of your throat


Seek medical attention if you experience any of the following:

  • Dryness or pain in the nose or throat
  • Nose bleeds
  • Minor skin irritation
  • Swelling of the nose, mouth, face, or throat
  • Difficulty breathing


Does Beconase nasal spray have any long-term side effects?

Very small amounts of the drug is absorbed into the blood stream, so Beconase is unlikely to cause any long-term side effects, especially those that are associated with long-term use of steroids.

If you use Beconase for more than 3 months, you should let your doctor or pharmacist know, so that they can arrange for regular monitoring if necessary.

Beconase warnings

Do not use Beconase if:

  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients
  • You currently have a nasal infection or trauma to the nose


Speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you are planning to use Beconase and:

  • You have previously had a nasal infection or trauma to the nose
  • You are currently using steroids, or have done for a long time

Beconase and pregnancy

Beconase, along with other steroid nasal sprays are safe to use during pregnancy. This is because very small amounts of the drug are absorbed into the blood stream.

You should contact your doctor or pharmacist if you wish to use Beconase whilst pregnant.

Beconase and breastfeeding

Beconase, along with other steroid nasal sprays are generally considered safe to use whilst breastfeeding.

Always check with your doctor or pharmacist if you plan to use steroid nasal sprays whilst breastfeeding.

Beconase interactions

Beconase is safe to take with most medication. However, Beconase can interact with the following:

  • HIV medication such as ritonavir and cobicistat


You should let your doctor or pharmacist know if you are taking any medication, so that they can check for interactions.

Beconase alternatives

Alternatively, there are different steroid nasal sprays such as:

The usual dose for Beconase is 2 sprays to be used into each nostril two time a day. This should be reduced to one spray into each nostril daily once symptoms are under control.

Before using Beconase for the first time, you must prepare your spray by ‘priming’ it.

To prepare your spray:

  • Remove the dust cap
  • Hold the bottle with your thumb on the bottom and index and middle finger on either side of the collar
  • While pointing the bottle away from you and keeping your thumb still, press down firmly with your fingers to pump the spray
  • Do this a couple of times until a fine mist is produced. This is known as ‘priming’

If you do not use your spray for a few days, it may need to be ‘primed’ again

Clean your spray at least once a week to prevent it from getting blocked.

To clean your spray:

  • Remove the dust cap
  • Pull upwards on the white collar to remove the nozzle
  • Soak the dust cap and nozzle for a few minutes in warm water
  • Rinse them both under a running tap
  • Shake the excess water off both pieces and leave them to dry in a warm place
  • Replace the nozzle back on the spray
  • ‘Prime’ the nozzle as you did when preparing your spray

If Beconase nasal spray does not relieve your symptoms straight away, continue using it for a few days as it may take a few days for it to work.
