Information - Butacort Nasal Spray
Butacort nasal spray contains a corticosteriod (budesonide 50mcg), which gives short-term prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis commonly known as Hayfever. Butacort 50 helps alleviate symptoms such as sore itchy eyes, runny nose and blocked sinuses. Butacort nasal spray does take a few days to achieve full effect, so using the spray regularly is important.
The usual dosage for adults and children over 12 years is initially one or two sprays into each nostril twice a day (morning and night), then after 2 to 3 days, one spray into each nostril twice a day. Do not use Butacort for children under 12 years of age without first consulting with a doctor.
Your doctor may tell you to use different doses to these. If so, follow their instructions.
It usually takes 2 to 3 days before you notice any improvement in your symptoms.
If you suffer from hayfever, you should start your treatment just before the hayfever season to prevent symptoms from starting.
If hayfever symptoms do not improve within 7 days of treatment, see your doctor.
Do not use for more than 6 months unless instructed by your doctor or pharmacist.
Each spray contains 50 micrograms of the active ingredient budesonide.
