Flixonase

From £19.95 See Prices

Flixonase nasal spray helps to relieve symptoms of hay fever & allergies. This medication provides relief from symptoms such as nasal congestion, itchy nose and runny nose. It contains the active ingredient fluticasone propionate.

ABOUT Flixonase

What is Flixonase?

Flixonase nasal spray contains the active ingredient fluticasone propionate, which is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids reduce inflammation in order to fight against symptoms of allergy.


How does Flixonase work?

The active ingredient in Flixonase works by reducing inflammation and swelling in the nose. This is achieved by blocking the release of chemicals that trigger an allergic response. Corticosteroids such as Flixonase work in this way to reduce symptoms related to allergy and hayfever.


Who should not use Flixonase?

Do not use Flixonase if you are allergic to fluticasone propionate or any other ingredients contained within this medication, which can be found in the patient information leaflet.

Consult with your pharmacist or GP before taking Flixonase if:

  • You are taking, have recently taken, or are planning to take any other medication. In particular:
  • Any type of steroids
  • Any antiviral medication such as ritonavir or cobicistat
  • Any type of antifungal treatments

  • Place your thumb underneath the bottle and your index and middle finger on either side of the nozzle.
  • Press down with your fingers to pump the spray
  • Repeat this until a fine mist is released from the pump

Clean your spray at least once a week. You may need to clean it more often if it gets blocked

To clean Flixonase:

  • Remove the dust cap by gently holding the ridged sides and lifting it off. Do not twist it.
  • Pull the white collar upwards to remove the nozzle
  • Soak the dust cap and nozzle for a few minutes in warm water
  • Rinse them under a running tap
  • Leave them to dry in a warm place after shaking off any excess water
  • Replace the nozzle on the spray
  • Prepare or “prime” the Flixonase before using it again by following the steps above

The recommended dosage is usually 2 sprays in each nostril daily, preferably in the morning. This can be increased to twice a day or reduced to once spray in each nostril daily depending on the progress you are making with this treatment.
