Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray
Rhinocort Aqua® (budesonide nasal spray) is a prescription nasal spray often used for treating seasonal and year-long nasal allergy symptoms. By decreasing inflammation, it can help relieve sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and nasal itching.
Although it is often thought that nasal steroids take longer to start working (compared to other allergy medications), studies have shown that nasal symptoms usually improve within 10 hours of starting Rhinocort Aqua nasal spray.
You should talk to your healthcare provider before using this medication if you have never had chickenpox or the measles, have sores or injury to the inside of your nose, or have tuberculosis. While most people tolerate Rhinocort Aqua nasal spray well, potential side effects include nosebleeds, sore throat, and coughing.
