Butacort is the generic of Rhinocort Nasal Spray and is used to provide effective relief from hayfever. It contains Budesonide 50mcg, a corticosteroid that is used in the prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, more commonly known as "hayfever". To maximize effectiveness, treatment with Butacort should commence prior to exposure to allergens. Butacort is not designed to provide immediate relief from hayfever. It will generally take a few days to reach its full effect so Butacort needs to be used on a regular basis, even when the symptoms appear to have abated. Butacort will reduce swelling in the nasal passages, relieve sinus blockage, sneezing and sore eyes. Butacort 50 Aqueous Nasal Spray comes in a 10ml bottle containing 200 sprays.
Read the information leaflet carefully before using. Gently shake the bottle well before each use. Remove the dust cap from the nasal applicator. Hold the nasal spray straight upright. The first time the nasal spray is used it will need to be 'primed'. To prime the pump for use firmly press down on the white collar. Keep pressing until a fine spray is released through the applicator nozzle. The nasal spray is now primed and ready for use. It will not be necessary to reprime the nasal spray unless it is disassembled or used infrequently.
Once the nasal spray is ready for use, gently blow you nose to help clear the nostrils. Tilt your head slightly forward, close one nostril and carefully insert the nasal applicator into the other nostril. Hold the bottle upright and press down firmly on the white collar to deliver the required dosage of spray. Breathe gently inwards through the nostril and then breathe out through your mouth. Repeat the procedure for the other nostril. Replace the dust cap once you are finished. Store Butacort 50 Aqueous Nasal Spray below 25 degrees Celsius but do not refrigerate. Protect from direct sunlight and store in an upright position. Discard 3 months after first using the spray.
