What is Nasacort?

Nasacort is a steroid nasal spray, used to treat symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and allergy. It works by reducing inflammation and irritation in the nose. This helps to reduce symptoms such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny or itchy nose

 

How long does Nasacort take to work?

It can take around 1-4 days to start to feel the effects of treatment. To feel the full benefits of treatment, you need to use Nasacort consistently for a few weeks.


Nasacort dosage instructions

Use two sprays in each nostril daily.

Reduce to one spray in each nostril daily, once control has been achieved.
