For adults who are using Flonase, dosage recommendations for treating allergic or non-allergic nasal symptoms generally start at two sprays in each nostril once daily or one spray in each nostril twice daily. Children ages four and older typically start with one spray in each nostril once a day. Your healthcare provider may increase or decrease your dose of Flonase as needed.
The dose of Flonase® (fluticasone propionate nasal spray) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your age
- Other medications you may be taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
The recommended starting dose for treating allergic or non-allergic nasal symptoms in adults is two sprays of Flonase in each nostril once daily (four sprays total) or one spray in each nostril twice daily (also four sprays total). Your healthcare provider may recommend that you try to decrease your dose to one spray in each nostril once daily after a few days. Alternatively, your healthcare provider may recommend two sprays of Flonase once daily (four sprays total) only on the days you have symptoms.
For adolescents and children four years old and older, the recommended starting dosage of Flonase is one spray in each nostril once daily. If needed, your child's healthcare provider may increase the dose up to two sprays in each nostril once daily.
For all people, the maximum recommended dosage is two sprays in each nostril once daily.
