Beclomethasone nasal spray is used to relieve symptoms of sneezing, runny, stuffy, or itchy nose (rhinitis) caused by hay fever, other allergies, or vasomotor (nonallergic) rhinitis. It is also used to prevent nasal polyps (swelling of the lining of the nose) after nasal polyp removal surgery. Beclomethasone nasal spray should not be used to treat symptoms (e.g., sneezing, stuffy, runny, itchy nose) caused by the common cold. Beclomethasone nasal spray is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works by blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause allergy symptoms.
The active substance is beclometasone diproprionate. Each individual spray will contain 50 microgrammes of beclometasone diproprionate.
The other ingredients are anhydrous dextrose, polysorbate 80, dispersible cellulose, benzalkonium chloride 95%, phenylethanol and purified water.
This product should only be used by adults over 18. Before using this product, remove the dust cap and gently shake the bottle.

Keep the spray upright, breathe in through your nose and press down on the nozzle to release a spray into your nose. Apply 2 sprays into each nostril twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
