Fluticasone

No Prescription

Fluticasone nasal spray is a remedy for the stuffy, runny, itchy nose that plagues many allergy-sufferers. It can be prescribed either for seasonal attacks of hay fever or for year-round allergic conditions. Fluticasone is a steroid medication. It works by relieving inflammation within the nasal passages.

The Flovent, Flovent Rotadisk, and Flovent Diskus oral inhalers are prescribed to prevent flare-ups of asthma. (They will not, however, relieve an acute attack.) They sometimes serve as a replacement for the steroid tablets that many people take to control asthma.

Dosage

Fluticasone

Adults

The usual starting dose is 2 sprays in each nostril once daily. (Some doctors may prescribe 1 spray in each nostril every 12 hours.) Once your symptoms are under control, your doctor may reduce the dose to 1 spray in each nostril once daily.

Some people (12 and over) with seasonal allergies find that it's sufficient to use Fluticasone only on days when their symptoms flare up. If you use Fluticasone this way, take no more than 2 sprays per nostril on any given day.

Children

Fluticasone is not recommended for children under the age of 4. The recommended starting dose is 1 spray in each nostril once a day. If symptoms do not improve in a few days, the dose can be increased to 2 sprays in each nostril once a day, or 1 spray in each nostril twice a day. The dose should be reduced again once symptoms have subsided.
