What is Nasacort?


Nasacort nasal spray contains triamcinolone, a corticosteroid (adrenal hormone). This nasal spray relieves nasal symptoms which are the result of an allergic reaction. You can order Nasacort online through the pharmacies that work together with Dokteronline.com.

What is this medication used for?


Doctors prescribe Nasacort against nasal symptoms caused by allergies. These symptoms may endure for some time and consist of:

  • Stuffy or runny nose;
  • itching or other irritation in the nose;
  • Sneezing.

Allergic nasal symptoms are usually caused by a hypersensitivity to pollen (hay fever), pet dander, dust mites or other substances. The active substance in this medication has anti-inflammatory properties and ensures that the mucous membrane in the nose swells less rapidly. This reduces or prevents the nasal symptoms.

How to use Nasacort?


Nasacort nasal spray works best when it is used regularly. It may take several days for the anti-inflammatory effect to become optimal. Once reduce the symptoms, you can go on a maintenance dose. Use the nasal spray as follows:

  • Blow your nose well;
  • shake the bottle before each use and remove the protective cap and the plastic clip;
  • When using the pump for the first time, push it down five times until liquid is atomized (skip this step for next uses);
  • Press one nostril with your finger;
  • Insert the nozzle into the other nostril and press down on the dosing pump;
  • Breathe simultaneously through the nose so that the liquid is inserted deep in the nose;
  • Exhale through the mouth;
  • Repeat the steps for the other nostril or for a subsequent atomization.

Clean the nozzle with a tissue and seal it with the clip and the cap. You can find more information about the use of the nasal spray in the leaflet.
