Nasal spray

Pirinase, taken once a day, goes further than antihistamine tablets to relieve more hayfever symptoms including nasal congestion.

Pirinase Hayfever Nasal Spray treats the symptoms of hayfever and other airborne allergies. And, used once a day, it can actually prevent symptoms from developing (with regular use). Pirinase is non- drowsy and available behind the counter in all pharmacies.

Pirinase is an intranasal corticosteroid (INCS) containing fluticasone propionate. This has an anti-inflammatory action and works in a similar way to natural body chemicals to control inflammation. This spray helps control your body's reactions to airborne allergens in the environment, such as pollen, mould spores, pet dander or dust mites.

Pirinase relieves the following hayfever/airborne allergy symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Nasal congestion/blockage
  • Blocked up, groggy feeling

Pirinase helps to relieve allergy symptoms for up to 24 hours. It can also help to prevent the return of symptoms during the day. Pirinase has a direct action to relieve allergy symptoms where they start.

Consult your doctor if your symptoms have not improved after using the spray for 7 days.

Please read the full patient information leaflet before using the product.

Why use Pirinase?

Antihistamines treat early phase symptoms (sneezing, itchy and runny nose, watery eyes) whereas Pirinase goes further to treat both the early phase and late phase symptoms (nasal congestion and blockage, blocked-up, groggy feeling).

Pirinase relieves the following hayfever / airborne allergy symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny Nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Nasal Congestion/blockage
  • Blocked-up, groggy feeling

No other hayfever medicine is more effective without prescription.

How can I prevent my symptoms from developing?

If you know you are going to come into contact with airborne allergens that may trigger your allergy you can use Pirinase in advance to help prevent symptoms from developing. For example, if you check the pollen forecast on Tuesday and see that the pollen count is going to be high in your area towards the weekend and you are going to be out and about, you can start to use Pirinase straight away to allow it to build up to full effectiveness.

Pirinase can take 3-4 days to build up to maximum effect.

How to use Pirinase

Just one daily dose can provide unbeaten relief. Becasue Pirinase can last up to 24 hours, you won't need to carry it around with you...just spray once a day and go! Pirinase offers protection from airborne allergies throughout the day.

The usual dose for adults aged 18years and over is 2 sprays into each nostril, once a day. If your symptoms get better try 1 spray into each nostril, once a day.

Do not use this nasal spray for more than 3 months continuously, without consulting a doctor.

Myth 1 - Nasal Sprays only treat nasal symptoms

Lots of people think that nasal sprays are only for nasal symptoms - but with Pirinase this is not the case. Pirinase not only treats nasal symptoms but also the itchy, watery eyes and that congested feeling that are common symptoms of airborne allergies.

Myth 2 - Sprays are difficult to use

A lot of people think that sprays are difficult to use with a runny nose but the effectiveness of a spray can well be worth giving them a try. Pirinase goes further than antihistamine tablets to relieve more hayfever symptoms including nasal congestion.

Myth 3 - Tablets are the only treatment available

If you find that your current allergy treatment is not giving you the relief you need or you are still experiencing symptoms, Pirinase could be an alternative treatment option.
