Beclometasone Nasal Spray warnings

  • Beclometasone Nasal Spray is only intended for use in the nose and must not be taken by mouth.
  • Take care to avoid getting the spray in the eyes.
  • The plastic nozzle of your nasal spray should be cleaned at least once a week, or more frequently if the spray doesn't work because it has become blocked.
  • Never try to unblock the nozzle or enlarge the tiny spray hole with a pin or other sharp object, because this will break the spray mechanism.
  • Any remaining spray must be discarded three months after you first open the bottle, because it may be contaminated with dirt or bacteria. You may find it helpful to write the date of first opening on the bottle so you know when to throw it away. Dispose of carefully, preferably by returning it to a pharmacy.
  • When taken in high doses for long periods of time, corticosteroids have the potential to cause glaucoma, cataracts, slowed growth in children and adolescents, and to decrease the functioning of the adrenal glands (glands that produce natural steroid hormones). These side effects on other areas of the body are called systemic side effects and are extremely unlikely to occur with this nasal spray, because the amount of beclometasone absorbed into the bloodstream from the nose is very low. However, as a precaution, your doctor will prescribe the lowest effective dose needed to control your symptoms.
  • You should not exceed this prescribed dose. If your child is using this nasal spray for long periods of time your doctor may want to monitor their height to make sure their growth is not being affected. For further information discuss this with your doctor.
  • Not suitable for children under 6 years of age.
  • The safety of this medicine being used during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not established, therefore, like all other medications, it should be avoided unless otherwise advised by your doctor or healthcare professional.
  • You should avoid this medicine if you have any known sensitivity or allergy to any of the ingredients.

Use in caution with:

  • People with an infection in the nasal passages or sinuses (the infection should be treated)
  • People who have recently had nasal surgery or an injury to the nose (this medicine should not be used until the nose has healed)
  • People with tuberculosis affecting the lungs
