About Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm

Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm is indicated for managing the nasal symptoms of seasonal, perennial allergic and non-allergic rhinitis in adult and paediatric patients aged four years and older. Seasonal allergies are caused by exposure to airborne substances (such as pollens) that are only present at specific seasons of the year. Perennial allergies are caused by year-round indoor exposure to airborne pollutants (such as house dust). Perennial non-allergic rhinitis, also known as vasomotor rhinitis, is a chronic illness characterised by symptoms similar to allergic rhinitis (runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, and nasal itching) but lasting for more than nine months each year.

Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm contains fluticasone. Fluticasone works by inhibiting the release of certain chemicals in the body that cause inflammatory reactions. Thereby, it provides relief from a blocked or runny nose, sneezing, itching, watery eyes and an itchy nose.

Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm is available on prescription only. Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm must be taken as directed by the healthcare professional or as per leaflet information to get the maximum benefit of Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm. With Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm, very little medicine is absorbed into the rest of the body, so it's not likely to give you side effects. In rare cases, you may experience headaches, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, nose bleeds, trouble breathing, cough, burning, or itching. Most of these side effects of Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Tell your doctor if you have had an allergic or hypersensitive reaction to fluticasone or other medicines. If you are a pregnant woman or nursing mother, do not consume Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm without first consulting your doctor. Avoid Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm use in patients with recent nasal ulcers, surgery, or trauma. It is recommended not to use in children under four years of age. Children aged four years and older can use Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm under the supervision of a healthcare professional. The development of eye conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma has been reported with the use of fluticasone nasal sprays. You should have a yearly eye exam to check for these conditions.

  • It is best to avoid coming into touch with recognised allergens (allergy-causing agents) such as pollen, dust, etc.

  • Avoid certain food that is known to trigger allergies in you.

  • Processed foods and those high in sugar and fat should be avoided because they may trigger inflammation.

  • Reduce your daily salt intake and replace it with herbs or spices such as garlic, ginger, and turmeric, which contain natural anti-inflammatory ingredients.

  • Please avoid contact with dust as it might worsen your symptoms.

  • Stop smoking; quitting smoking can significantly reduce the severity and frequency of your symptoms.

  • Also, please avoid contact with pollen in the air as it might worsen your symptoms.

  • Contact with any person with chickenpox, measles, or tuberculosis should be avoided as it might cause you the same infection as Furamist Nasal Spray 6 gm makes your body prone to infections.
