Nasal irritation, sore throat, nosebleeds, and cough are some of Rhinocort Aqua's common side effects. In most cases, side effects are minor and either don't require medical attention or can be easily treated. There are, however, certain side effects that are potentially serious and that should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately, including wheezing, severe nosebleeds, or frequent infections.

Side Effects of Rhinocort Aqua: An Introduction

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Rhinocort Aqua® (budesonide nasal spray). However, not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
