What is Flixonase nasal spray?

Flixonase is a steroid nasal spray which contains the active ingredient fluticasone propionate. It works by reducing inflammation in the nasal passage, to combat symptoms of hay fever and allergy.

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itching

Flixonase nasal spray dosage instructions

Two sprays to be used in each nostril once daily, preferably in the morning. Increase the dose to two sprays into each nostril twice daily if necessary.

Is it safe to use Flixonase long-term?

Flixonase is generally well tolerated and safe to use long-term, as very little of the drug is absorbed into your blood stream. However, larger doses over a long period of time can very rarely affect the production of normal steroids in your body. To avoid this from happening, you should use Flixonase nasal spray at the lowest possible dose, and only use it during exposure to allergens.

Important note: If you need to use Flixonase long-term, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

Flixonase nasal spray warnings

Do not use Flixonase if:

  • You are allergic to any of its ingredients
  • You have a current infection in your nose
  • You have nasal trauma (from an injury or an operation)

Flixonase and pregnancy

Flixonase is usually safe to use in pregnancy, as very small amounts of the drug enter the blood stream. However, you should always check with your doctor or pharmacist, especially if you are using larger doses over a long period of time.

Flixonase and breastfeeding

Flixonase is usually safe to use by most breastfeeding women. However, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist, so that they can assess whether the benefits outweigh the risks.

Flixonase nasal spray interactions

Flixonase nasal spray does not have many interactions, as very small amounts enter the blood. However, you should let your doctor or pharmacist know if you are using:

  • Any other nasal preparations
  • Steroid tablets
  • Ritonavir – an antiviral medication
  • Ketoconazole – an antifungal medication


It is likely that you will still be able to use Flixonase nasal spray.
