Benacort Nasal Spray

Benacort Nasal Spray prevents and relieves nasal congestion, runny & itchy nose and sneezing caused by hayfever. It contains budesonide, a corticosteroid which helps to dampen down and prevent inflammation. Regular use of Benacort Nasal Spray over several days can reduce inflammation in the nose and help prevent symptoms.

Benacort Nasal Spray is only suitable for adults aged 18 years and over.


Each bottle of Benacort Nasal Spray contains 120 sprays (30 day supply).

  • Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist have told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
  • Do not use more than two sprays into each nostril in a day.
  • You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 14 days.
Using the nasal spray once a day
  • The recommended dose is two sprays into each nostril in the morning.
  • If your symptoms improve, reduce this to one spray in each nostril in the morning.
Using the nasal spray twice a day
  • If you prefer, you can use one spray into each nostril every morning and evening.
Other Information
  • Try to start using this nasal spray before you come into contact with whatever causes the allergy. For example, if it is a particular type of pollen that causes your hay fever, use this nasal spray just before and during the time when you are exposed to it.
  • Use this nasal spray regularly. Keep using it until you are no longer exposed to whatever is causing your allergy.
  • The full effect of treatments like this nasal spray are not achieved until after a few days of treatment. You may not notice any effects for the first few days. If there is no improvement in your symptoms after 14 days, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Do not use this nasal spray continuously for longer than 3 months without talking to your doctor.
  • Active Ingredient: Budesonide (64 micrograms in each spray).
  • Other Ingredients: Disodium edetate, potassium sorbate (E202), glucose (anhydrous), microcrystalline cellulose (E460), carboxymethylcellulose sodium (E466), polysorbate 80 (E433), hydrochloric acid and purified water.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine. If you get pregnant while using this nasal spray, talk to your doctor or pharmacist straight away.
  • If you are about to have an operation or during times of stress, please tell your doctor that you use this nasal spray. Your doctor may ask you to take steroid tablets as well, particularly if you have been taking a high dose of this nasal spray, or a similar medicine, for a long time.
  • If you have an allergy, which is also causing eye problems, you may need to take another medicine as well.
  • Contact your doctor if you experience blurred vision or other visual disturbances.
Do not use Benacort Nasal Spray:

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines. This includes medicines that you buy without a prescription and herbal medicines. This is because Benacort Nasal Spray can affect the way some medicines work and some medicines can have an effect on Benacort Nasal Spray and your doctor may wish to monitor you carefully. In particular, talk to your doctor or pharmacist if:
  • You are taking medicines to treat fungal infections (such as itraconazole or ketoconazole).
