Demonstration video on spray technique
It’s easy to use FLONASE Allergy Relief. Just follow these simple steps to get the most from each spray.
First, shake the bottle gently, then remove the green cap. If it’s the first time you’re using a new bottle, or you’ve just cleaned the nozzle, or if you haven’t used FLONASE is a week or more, next you’ll need to prime the nozzle. Here’s how.
First, aim the bottle away from your face. Grasp the spray bottle like this, then pump until a fine mist appears. That’s how you’ll know the bottle is primed for use. If you pump six times and no mist appears, the spray nozzle may be clogged and needs to be cleaned.
Before using FLONASE, just below your nose gently to clear your nostrils.
Super: Tip/WARNING Do not spray into your eyes.
Now, close one nostril, place just the tip of the spray nozzle in your other nostril. Be sure to aim slightly away from the center of your nose. Be careful not to spray into your eyes. FLONASE is only for use in your nose.
Sniff gently as your press down on the spray nozzle. You’ll feel a light mist in your nose. Then, breathe out through your mouth. Depending on your dosing instructions, you may need to spray just once, or you may need to spray twice. Now repeat in the other nostril. Then wipe the spray nozzle with a clan tissue and replace the cap. Easy.
