A - GETTING STARTED

NASONEX™ 24HR Allergy works best at relieving your allergy symptoms when you get a full dose. Here’s how to get started, in five easy steps.

1 – SHAKE

Shake spray bottle well.

Remove cap.

2 – PRIME

Do this when:

Starting a new bottle
Bottle has not been used in one week
Just cleaned nozzle

Otherwise go to step 3

Aim away from face. Grasp spray bottle as shown. Pump until fine mist appears. Pumped ten times and still no mist? Spray nozzle may be clogged. See KEEP IT CLEAN, other side.

NOTE: There is enough medicine in the bottle to allow for priming sprays plus the number of sprays labeled on the bottle.

3 – BLOW

Blow nose gently to clear nostrils.

4 – AIM

Close one nostril and put tip of spray nozzle in other nostril.

Put just the tip into your nose.

Aim slightly away from center of nose.

5 – BREATHE AND SPRAY

While sniffing gently, press down on spray nozzle once or twice (according to dosing instructions). You'll feel a light mist in your nose. Breathe out through your mouth. Repeat in other nostril.

Wipe spray nozzle with clean tissue and replace cap.

C – KEEP IT CLEAN

A clean spray nozzle helps ensure a full dose.

Remove spray nozzle by grasping at base and pulling up.

Rinse under running tap water, and dry at room temperature.

Aim away from your face and gently, but firmly, replace spray nozzle.

If spray nozzle is clogged, soak in warm water. Then repeat steps 2 and 3.
