    The first time you open FLONASE Allergy Relief, you may be surprised by how well sealed its packaging is.

    We designed our tamper-resistant plastic package with your best interests in mind—to maintain package integrity yet allow full view of the product.

    To easily open the package, all you need is a pair of scissors.

    ONSCREEN SUPER: Parents are encouraged to open the package for their child.

    Look for the Scissors icon in the top right corner of the pack. Then cut along the top of the package up the side, and then along the bottom. Handle carefully because the edges can be sharp.

    Now it’s easy to remove the FLONASE bottle and the instructions for use. And don’t forget, the rest of the packaging can be recycled.

    It’s easy to use FLONASE Allergy Relief. Just follow these simple steps to get the most from each spray.

    First, shake the bottle gently. Then, remove the green cap. If it is the first time you’re using a new bottle or you’ve just cleaned the nozzle or if you haven’t used FLONASE in a week or more, you’ll need to prime the nozzle before using it. Here’s how.

    First, aim the bottle away from your face. Grasp the spray bottle like this. Then pump until a fine mist appears. That’s how you’ll know the bottle is primed for use. If you pump 6 times and no mist appears, the spray nozzle may be clogged and needs to be cleaned.

    Before using FLONASE, just blow your nose gently to clear your nostrils. Now, close 1 nostril. Place just the tip of the spray nozzle in your other nostril. Be sure to aim slightly away from the center of your nose. Be careful not to spray into your eyes. FLONASE is only for use in your nose.

    ONSCREEN SUPER: WARNING: Do not spray in your eyes.

    Sniff gently as you press down on the spray nozzle. You’ll feel a light mist in your nose. Then, breathe out through your mouth. Depending on your dosing instructions, you may need to spray just once or you may need to spray twice. Now, repeat in the other nostril. Then wipe the spray nozzle with a clean tissue and replace the cap. Easy!

    A clean spray nozzle helps ensure a full dose. Clean the nozzle weekly, or any time it gets clogged. Never try to unblock it with a pin or sharp object—that can damage it.

    To clean the spray nozzle, first remove it by grasping the base and pulling up. Next, rinse the nozzle under a running tap and dry it at room temperature. Once it’s dry, aim the nozzle away from your face and gently replace the spray nozzle until you hear a soft click. If you find the spray nozzle is still clogged, simply soak it in warm water.

    Repeat steps 2 and 3: rinse, dry, and replace the nozzle, and then try again.

    Any time you clean the nozzle, you’ll need to prepare it for use by priming it, just the way you did the first time you used the bottle. To prime the nozzle, first aim the bottle away from your face. Grasp the spray bottle like this. Then pump until a fine mist appears.
