About Rhinocort/Budesonide Nasal Spray
Rhinocort nasal spray contains the active ingredient budesonide. Budesonide belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids, all of which have anti-inflammatory properties. Rhinocort nasal spray is used to treat and prevent the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is a very common condition, affecting 20% of people in The UK.
The condition is caused by allergens, which trigger an immune response within the body. The most common allergens that trigger allergic rhinitis are; pollen, animal fur, and dust mites. After an allergen enters the nose, the immune system mistakes it for something more dangerous, such as an infection. This case of mistaken identity triggers an immune response, which results in the body producing additional mucus. This leads to sneezing, congestion, and a runny nose.
Rhinocort will likely take a few days to reach its full effect. So, if possible, begin treatment in advance of when you expect to encounter allergens. You may choose to use oral antihistamines for relief until Rhinocort begins to reduce inflammation. Rhinocort has been proven to be safe and effective for long-term use.
