Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray or generic Budesonide can be prescribed to treat the symptoms of seasonal or year-round allergies that cause sneezing, runny or stuffed nose, and itchy, watery eyes. Allergies can interfere with your work, school, social events, family gatherings, and your sleep. You can prepare for seasonal allergies and start using Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray before spores and pollen make an appearance. If you have year-round or perennial allergies, it could be tougher for you to escape dander, dust mites, mold, fabric fibers, and cockroaches. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the same company that makes the brand product.
Once sprayed into your nose as instructed, Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray is absorbed into the cells in your nasal passages where chemicals are released when your allergic response is triggered. The corticosteroid called Budesonide, inhibits your immune system in a way that interferes with the release of antibodies known as Immunoglobulin E so your cells cannot send chemicals which includes histamines. You can breathe easier, see better, and enjoy your day.
Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray may also be prescribed to prevent nasal polyps from returning after being surgically removed or from growing as a result of chronic inflammation caused by allergies, asthma, a recurring infection, or certain immune disorders. Nasal polyps are common and resemble grapes that hang down from the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses.
Nasal polyps are soft, benign growths that are painless but they can interfere with your breathing if allowed to go unchecked. Symptoms can include; reduced sense of smell, snoring, sleep apnea, nasal congestion, or a runny nose. Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray helps shrink nasal polyps, but they can return once you stop using it.
Ask your doctor is there are any risks with using Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray is safe for you to use, advise your physician of other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide a list of any non-prescription medications or Rx drugs you use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.
You have to be patient when you start using Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray as it may take a couple of days before you notice any improvement in your symptoms and up to two weeks before it is fully working. You may become more susceptible to infections while using Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray due to the suppression of your immune system to stop inflammation. If you accidentally get any spray in your eyes, rinse with lots of water and inform your doctor.
