General Product Information
Beconase (or Beclomethasone Nasal) is a drug used for the treatment of numerous allergies, including those to dust, pets, hay fever (an allergy to pollen or dust) and other airborne allergies.
It is advisable to take Beconase only with a pharmacist's or doctor’s counsel. Before starting the use of this drug, it is important to provide the doctor with complete information about one’s medical history, particularly, the following:
any kind of bacterial, viral or fungal infection that one is suffering from at present or has had previously. Provide details of medication taken for the treatment. Using Beconase may reduce the body’s immune responses and thus it may not be advisable to take the drug in case of any existing infection unless prescribed by the doctor.
any medicines that one is currently using (mention any over the counter drugs or herbal products as well).
exposure to diseases like chicken pox, measles in the recent past.
pregnancy or plans to conceive in the near future.
if one is a nursing mother.
any kind of nasal infection
any recent steroidal treatment
any past record of allergy to Beconase.
Beclomethasone Nasal is not to be used by children below 6 years of age. The drug must strictly be used as advised by your pharmacist or doctor. Read the label on the product carefully (something most people invariably ignore) and strictly adhere to the instructions. In case of any doubt, one must immediately consult the medical practitioner.
Beclomethasone Nasal has to be used regularly for effective and quick results. While using the medicine, one must stay away from known -triggering agents.
While using the Beclomethasone Nasal spray, one must shake it well before administering the prescribed dose. Another seeming obvious tip: remove the safety clip and the dust cap before using the nasal spray.
If in any case a dose is missed, it may be taken immediately upon remembering. However, if it is time for the next regular dose, skip the missed dose and take the regular dose instead. Do not take a double dose of this medicine under any circumstances.
A few weeks are required for the medicine to take effect. Any overuse or deviance from the instructions may lead to serious complications. In case symptoms worsen or there is no relief from the existing condition, the doctor should be informed immediately without fail.
Beconase is seen to be less effective when cold. Therefore, it must not be stored in a refrigerator but instead at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Do not use any other nasal drugs along with Beconase unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor. It must be kept away from the reach of children and pets at all times.

Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional.
I used Beconase all last winter, I have allergic rhinitis, constant inflammation in my sinuses and I can't breathe. Beconase worked great. I tried a different kind this year and although it helps with my allergies it does not help with inflammation.
