Flonase nasal spray, which contains the active ingredient fluticasone propionate, is indicated for the treatment of various nasal symptoms caused by seasonal or year-round allergies. It is used to relieve nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, and itchy or watery eyes associated with allergies caused by pollen, mold, dust, or pets.

Flonase is available without a prescription and can be used by adults and children who are at least 4 years old. It is a nasal steroid that works by reducing inflammation and preventing the release of substances in the body that cause allergic symptoms. Flonase nasal spray should not be used to treat symptoms caused by the common cold.


  • Administer Flonase nasal spray by the intranasal route only. 
  • Prime Flonase nasal spray before using it for the first time or after a period of non-use by releasing 6 sprays into the air away from the face. 
  • Shake Flonase nasal spray gently before each use. 
  • Use Flonase nasal spray at regular intervals since its effectiveness depends on its regular use. 
  • Take two sprays of Flonase, as an adult, in each nostril once a day for the first week. After that, use one or two sprays in each nostril once a day as needed. 
  • Consult your healthcare provider if symptoms persist after six months of daily use. 
  • Take one spray in each nostril once a day for children ages 4 to 11, under adult supervision. 
  • Check with a healthcare provider if symptoms continue for more than two months for children. 
  • Take the adult dose for children ages 12 and up. 
  • Contact your healthcare provider if you experience any unusual problems or serious side effects while using Flonase nasal spray. 
  • Store Flonase nasal spray between 39°F and 86°F (4°C and 30°C). 



  • Do not exceed the maximum total daily dosage of 2 sprays in each nostril. 
  • Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your healthcare provider's approval. 


The maximum effect of Flonase nasal spray may take several days, and individual patients will experience a variable time to onset and different degrees of symptom relief. There is no evidence that exceeding the recommended dose is more effective. While many people may feel the effects after the first dose, it may take 3 to 4 days of regular use for the full effect on allergy symptoms. Nasal steroids like Flonase are most effective when used regularly for long-term relief. Other medications can affect the removal of fluticasone from your body, which may affect how fluticasone works.

Before taking  Flonase nasal spray, it is important to be aware of certain warnings and precautions:

  1. Local Nasal Effects: Flonase nasal spray may lead to adverse reactions such as epistaxis (nosebleeds), nasal ulceration, nasal septal perforation, and impaired wound healing. Do not use Flonase if you have recently had nasal ulcers, nasal surgery, or nasal trauma until healing has occurred.
  2. Glaucoma and Cataracts: Nasal and inhaled corticosteroids, including Flonase, have been associated with an increased risk of glaucoma and cataracts. Notify your healthcare provider if you experience any changes in vision while using Flonase.
  3. Hypersensitivity Reactions: Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, have been reported with the use of Flonase nasal spray. If you experience any signs of a severe allergic reaction, such as difficulty breathing or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, seek immediate medical attention.
