Flixonase is a type of treatment called a corticosteroid, which is used to medicate allergic rhinitis. It is available as a nasal spray or as nasule drops, and reduces symptoms triggered by hay fever, dust mites, mold and animal fur. The nasule drops also used in some cases to treat nasal polyps. Both versions of Flixonase are only available to buy in the UK with a prescription.

Rhinitis is the name given to allergic reactions which cause nasal symptoms. These include itching and irritation, a blocked nose, swelling and sneezing. It occurs when airborne irritants such as pollen, mold spores or dust mites are inhaled by those who have an increased sensitivity to them. In such cases, the immune system interprets the irritants as an infection, and triggers a defensive sequence of chemical reactions. This results in swelling and inflammation, causing the symptoms described.
With rhinitis, there are two main types: seasonal, which is triggered at certain times of year by, for instance, pollen; and perennial, which is present throughout the year and is usually the result of an allergen which is constantly present in a person’s environment, such as animal fur.
The condition is a fairly common one, thought by the NHS to affect around one in five people in the UK. Why some people have allergies and others don’t is not fully understood, but early conditioning is reckoned to play a role in the development of intolerance to certain airborne stimuli. For instance, if someone is consistently around tobacco smoke in their childhood years, then they may be more likely to have allergic rhinitis as they get older. Someone may also be more prone to allergic reactions if the condition runs in their family too.
For some, avoiding these irritants can help to limit the effects of the condition. When the pollen count outside is high, for example, someone may choose to stay indoors as much as possible, or change their clothes after getting home. In cases where someone is allergic to dust mites, cleaning the home and keeping it well-ventilated can help.
But for others, these measures may not be sufficient and treatment may be necessary. Flixonase, made by GlaxoSmithKline, contains an active ingredient called fluticasone propionate. A corticosteroid, it works by blocking the release of inflammatory chemicals which cause symptoms. These chemicals are produced when the immune system triggers skin and tissue cells into action. Fluticasone prevents these cells from responding in this manner, thus providing relief.

How to use Flixonase
Adhere to the directions given by your prescriber when using this treatment, and read the instructions in the patient information leaflet before use. This will help to maximise the benefits of the medication and reduce the risk of side effects.
- Use as prescribed.
For Flixonase Nasal Spray:
- The usual dose is two sprays in each nostril, once in the morning each day.
- Your dose may be reduced as your symptoms improve.
- Prior to first use, you will need to prime the spray. To do this, hold the bottle with the nozzle pointed away from you. Keep pumping the button until a mist is generated.
- Blow your nose before using.
- Close one nostril with your finger and insert the nozzle into the other. Tlit your head forward slightly. Make sure the bottle is kept upright.
- Begin inhaling and at the same time, press down in the button to deliver the dose.
- Then breathe out.
- Repeat this in the same nostril, then twice in the other nostril.
- Wipe the nozzle clean with a dry tissue.
For Flixonase Nasule Drops:
- The typical dose is one 400mcg container, split between both nostrils, once or twice daily as directed.
- Break off one dose from the pack.
- Flick the container to mix the contents, then shake downwards.
- Open by twisting and removing the tab.
- Blow your nose prior to use.
- Then, either bend right over while standing, so that your head is almost completely upside down.
- Or, if this is too difficult, lie down on a bed with your head hanging down backwards off the edge of the bed.
- Insert the end of the applicator into one nostril and squeeze to administer the dose.
- Once the sides are touching, half the dose, which is roughly 6 drops, has been expelled. You should then deliver the rest in the other nostril.
- Maintain this position for around a minute after issuing the dose.
For both treatments:
- Avoid contact with the eyes. If this occurs, rinse with water as soon as possible.
- Do not exceed the dose prescribed.
- If you miss a dose, skip it and take the next one when you are due. Never take double the amount to make up for a forgotten dose.
The above is only intended as a guide. Before use, you will need to read the instructions in the leaflet carefully.
