For adults and children 15 years old and older who are using Nasarel, dosage recommendations typically start at two sprays in each nostril twice daily. Children 6 to 14 years old generally start with either one spray of Nasarel in each nostril three times per day or two sprays in each nostril twice daily. Your healthcare provider may adjust your Nasarel dosage as needed.
The dose of Nasarel™ (flunisolide nasal solution) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your age
- How you respond to Nasarel
- Other medications you may be taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your Nasarel dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
Nasarel Dosage for Nasal AllergiesThe recommended dose of Nasarel for treating nasal allergies in adults and adolescents 15 years old and older is two sprays of Nasarel in each nostril twice daily (a total of eight sprays per day). If needed, your healthcare provider may increase the dose up to two sprays in each nostril three times daily (a total of 12 sprays per day).
For children ages 6 to 14, the recommended dose is either one spray of Nasarel in each nostril three times per day (a total of six sprays per day) or two sprays in each nostril twice daily (a total of eight sprays per day).
Considerations for people taking Nasarel include the following:
- Nasarel comes in the form of a nasal spray. It is usually used two or three times a day.
- Blow your nose before each Nasarel dose. Breathe in gently while spraying the medicine into your nose. Do not try to inhale the spray or breathe in too deeply, as the drug works when it comes into contact with the inside surfaces of the nose, not the throat or lungs.
- Avoid aiming the spray toward the wall that separates your nostrils in the middle of your nose, called the nasal septum. Spraying Nasarel toward the nasal septum increases the risk of nosebleeds. Some people find it easiest to avoid this by holding the bottle in the opposite hand (using the right hand to spray into the left nostril and vice versa).
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Nasarel will not work if you stop taking it. Be sure to ask your healthcare provider if you have any questions about your Nasarel dosage.
