Nasacort is a nasal spray that is designed to relieve year-round and seasonal allergies in children over the age of two years and adults. Even though Nasacort is an OTC product, it’s important to read all the directions and ask your pharmacist if you have any questions.
If you have used Nasacort in the past, it’s a good idea to read the ingredients, as well as the directions on the packaging, to make sure it’s still an ideal product for you. If you don’t see an improvement in symptoms or you have an adverse reaction, talk with your doctor about other options.
Dosage and Strength
The recommended dose for children over the age of 12 and adults is two sprays into each nostril, once a day. As allergy symptoms improve, the dose should be reduced to one spray in each nostril once a day.
For children six to 12 years old, one spray into each nostril once a day is the recommended dose. If symptoms do not improve, temporarily increase the dose to two sprays and when the symptoms finally improve, reduce to one spray.
Children, ages two to six, should only use one spray in each nostril on a daily basis. No child under the age of two should use Nasacort and adult supervision is always recommended. Since a child’s rate of growth may be affected by using Nasacort, you should consult your doctor if you need to use the nasal spray more than two months out of the year.
Side effects of using Nasacort on a regular basis may vary among individuals. Read all the packaging directions before using the nasal spray and talk to a pharmacist or your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
While the side effects may vary, talk to your doctor if your symptoms worsen or you notice something out of the ordinary. Here are some common side effects that may occur when using Nasacort:
