Get answers to all of your questions so you can achieve more complete allergy relief.
FLONASE SENSIMIST is an allergy medicine that works directly in your nose to relieve a broad range of nasal allergy symptoms caused by pollen, mold, dust, and pet dander.
There is virtually no-drip, it is scent-free, features an ergonomically designed bottle with the shortest nozzle of any allergy spray, plus it is alcohol-free and available without a prescription.
How long your FLONASE SENSIMIST lasts depends on the number of sprays indicated on the bottle.
Assuming you follow the instructions for priming the pump, you’re 12 or older, and use 2 sprays per nostril each day:
A 60-spray bottle will last you 2 weeks.
And a 120-spray bottle will last you 4 weeks.
For children ages 2 to 11 who use 1 spray in each nostril each day:
A 60-spray bottle lasts 4 weeks.
And a 120-spray bottle lasts 8 weeks.
Remember, FLONASE SENSIMIST is designed with a volume viewing window to monitor volume in the bottle.
FLONASE SENSIMIST can be used with most non-prescription and prescription medicines. However, medicines for HIV infection, medicines with glucocorticoids, and pills for fungal infection may cause the level of FLONASE SENSIMIST in your body to become too high.
That’s why it’s important to tell your doctor or pharmacist about all the medicines you take, including FLONASE SENSIMIST.
When you use FLONASE SENSIMIST, you may feel a very gentle mist, but the mist is so ﬁne you may not even notice it. Even if you don’t feel the mist, don’t use more than 2 sprays in each nostril per day if you’re 12 or older, and 1 spray in each nostril per day if you’re administering to a child aged 2 to 11.
