1. WHAT NASOFAN NASAL SPRAY IS
AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
Your medicine contains 50 micrograms of the active
ingredient, fluticasone propionate, in each spray.
Fluticasone propionate is one of a group of
medicines known as corticosteroids.
Nasofan Nasal Spray has anti-inflammatory
properties. When sprayed into your nose it will
reduce swelling and irritation. It is used to prevent
and treat seasonal allergic rhinitis (e.g. hayfever)
and perennial rhinitis (e.g. blocked or runny nose
and sneezing and itching caused by house dust
mites or animals such as cats and dogs). It can be
used by adults and children aged 4 years and older.

2. BEFORE YOU USE YOUR NASOFAN
NASAL SPRAY
Do not use Nasofan Nasal Spray:
 if you are allergic to fluticasone propionate or any
of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in
section 6).

Warnings and precautions

If you get any
side effects, talk
to your doctor or
pharmacist.
This includes any
possible side
effects not listed
in this leaflet. See
Section 4.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using
Nasofan Nasal Spray:
 if you have ever had an operation to your nose
 if you are suffering or have recently suffered from
an infection of the nasal airways
 if you are suffering or have recently suffered from
any type of untreated infection or from
tuberculosis or ocular herpes
 if you have recently been treated with injected
steroids, or you have been taking oral steroids for
a long time.
Nasofan Nasal Spray will usually control seasonally
allergy rhinitis (hay fever) however if you are
exposed to excessive amounts of pollen additional

therapy may be helpful for controlling other
symptoms such as itching eyes. Please consult your
doctor in such an event.

Other medicines and Nasofan Nasal Spray
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using, have
recently used or might use any other medicines.

Once your symptoms are under control your doctor
may reduce your dose to one spray into each nostril
once a day. If the use of such a reduced dose
signals a worsening in your symptoms, your dose
may be increased back to the starting dose.

Children aged 4 to 11 years:

Some medicines can interfere with Nasofan Nasal
Spray, in particular tell your doctor or pharmacist if
you are taking:
 Any medicines used in the treatment of fungal
infections (e.g. ketoconazole)
 Any antiviral medicine such as those used to treat
HIV infection (e.g. ritonavir)

For children aged between 4-11 years old the dose
is normally one spray in each nostril once a day,
preferably in the morning. Your doctor may increase
this to a maximum of one spray into each nostril
twice a day.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Your doctor will prescribe the lowest dose of
Nasofan Nasal Spray capable of effectively
controlling your symptoms.

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may
be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask
your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking
this medicine.

Driving and using machines
The medicinal product has no or negligible influence
on the ability to drive and use machines.

Nasofan Nasal Spray contains benzalkonium
chloride solution
Nasofan Nasal Spray contains the ingredient
benzalkonium chloride solution (40 micrograms per
delivered dose) which is an irritant and may cause
skin reactions. If used for longer periods, the
preservative benzalkonium chloride may cause
nasal mucosa swelling. In case of such a reaction
(persistently congested nose) medicinal products for
nasal use without preservative should be used if
possible. It may also cause bronchospasm. Unless
such products are available another pharmaceutical
form should be taken. It may also cause
bronchospasm.

3. HOW TO USE NASOFAN NASAL SPRAY
Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or
pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or
pharmacist if you are not sure.
The recommended dose is as follows:
Adults (including the elderly) and children aged
12 years and older:
When you first start using Nasofan Nasal Spray you
normally take two sprays in each nostril once a day,
preferably in the morning. Your doctor may increase
this to a maximum of two sprays into each nostril
twice a day.

This product is not suitable for children under 4
years old.

It may take a few days for this medicine to work. Do
not stop using your medicine unless you are told to
by a doctor.
You must not take a larger dose, or use your
Nasofan Nasal Spray more often, than is prescribed
by your doctor. It is important not to use more of
your medicine than your doctor has told you to.
If your eyes remain itchy or watery as a result of
hayfever despite using this medicine tell your
doctor. He/she may be able to give you another
medicine to treat your eye symptoms.

If you have not used your Nasofan Nasal Spray for
7 days prime until a fine mist is produced.
If after attempting to prime the bottle the spray still
does not work and you think it may be blocked you
may clean the spray using the following procedure:-

Cleaning your nasal spray
1. Remove the dust cap.
2. Pull the white collar
upwards to remove the
nozzle.
3. Place the nozzle and dust
cap in warm water and
soak for a few minutes,
and then rinse by placing
under a running tap.
4. Shake off the excess
water and allow the nozzle
and dust cap to dry in a warm (not hot) place.
5. Re-fit the nozzle.
6. ‘Prime’ the bottle as necessary by pumping the
spray a few times until a fine mist is produced.


Before you use your nasal spray

You should clean your nasal spray at least once
a week to stop it from getting blocked up.
Additional cleaning is required when your spray
becomes blocked.
You must NEVER attempt to unblock or enlarge
the spray hole with a pin or other sharp object
because this will destroy the spray mechanism.

Your Nasofan Nasal Spray has a dust cap that
protects the nozzle and keeps it clean – this must
be taken off prior to using the spray and then
replaced after use.



When your Nasofan Nasal Spray is new the bottle
must be primed as follows:1. Shake the bottle gently and then remove the
dust cap.

Using your nasal spray

2. Hold the bottle upright with
your thumb under the
bottle and your index
finger and middle finger
on either side of the nozzle.
Ensure that the nozzle is
pointing away from you
when you do this.

3. Close one nostril by pressing your finger against
it and place the nozzle of the spray in your other
nostril. Tilt your head forward slightly so that the
bottle is kept upright.

3. Press down with fingers in order to pump the
spray.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until a further five times –
the bottle is now primed.

1. Shake the bottle and remove the dust cap.
2. Gently blow your nose.

4. Breathe in slowly through
your open nostril and, at
the same time, press the
collar of the nozzle down
firmly with your fingers to
squirt a spray of fine mist
into your nostril.

6. Remove the nozzle
from this nostril and
breathe out through
your mouth.
7. Repeat steps 3 to 6
with your other nostril.

After using your nasal spray


Wipe the nozzle carefully with a clean tissue and
put the dust cap back on.

If you use more Nasofan Nasal Spray than
you should
It is important that you take your dose as stated on
the pharmacist’s label or as advised by your doctor.
You should use only as much as your doctor
recommends; using more or less may make your
symptoms worse.
If you accidentally use more Nasofan Nasal Spray
than you were told to use please inform your doctor.
Take this leaflet, and your Nasofan Nasal Spray, to
show the doctor.

If you forget to use Nasofan Nasal Spray
Do not take a double dose to make up for a
forgotten dose. If you forget to take a dose at the
right time, take it as soon as you remember. If it is
almost time to take the next dose, wait until then
and then carry on as before.

If you stop using Nasofan Nasal Spray
Your nose symptoms may only start to improve after
you have been using your medicine for a few days –
therefore it is very important that you use your
medicine regularly as prescribed, and that you keep
using your medicine unless your doctor tells you to
stop, even if you feel better.
If you have any further questions on the use of this
medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you are using high doses of Nasofan Nasal Spray
you may require extra steroids in times of extreme
stress, or during admission to hospital after a
serious accident or injury, or before a surgical
operation. Treatment with nasal corticosteroids may
affect the production of steroids in the body. The
likelihood of such an incidence is increased by use
of a high dose over a long period of time. Your
doctor will help prevent this happening by
prescribing the lowest dose of steroid capable of
adequately controlling your symptoms.
Some side effects are more serious than others
and if you should experience any of the
following events you should discontinue taking
Nasofan Nasal Spray and consult with your
doctor as soon as possible:Side effects occurring very commonly (probably
affecting more than 1 in 10 patients taking the
Nasofan Nasal Spray)
 epistaxis (nose bleeds).
Side effects occurring commonly (probably affecting
up to 1 in 10 patients taking the Nasofan Nasal
Spray)
 headache
 unpleasant taste in the mouth or an unpleasant
smell in the nose
 dryness and irritation of the throat and nasal
passages and sneezing.
Side effects occurring rarely (probably affecting
fewer than 1 in every 1,000 patients taking Nasofan
Nasal Spray)
 severe allergic reaction giving rise to the sudden
onset of a rash, swelling (usually of the tongue,
face or lips) or difficulty in breathing
 bronchospasm (the narrowing of the airways in
the lungs).
Side effects occurring very rarely (probably affecting
fewer than 1 in every 10,000 patients taking the
Nasofan Nasal Spray)
 glaucoma (raised pressure in the eye) and
cataracts (clouding of the lens in the eye) have
been reported following prolonged treatment
 perforation of the nasal septum (the dividing
partition in the nose) and ulceration to the
nose’s mucus membranes - although these
usually impact on patients who have had
previous surgery to the nose.

Children may grow more slowly than others, and
therefore children receiving treatment with nasal
corticosteroids over a long period of time will have
their height checked regularly by their doctor. Your
doctor will help prevent this happening by
prescribing the lowest dose of steroid capable of
adequately controlling the symptoms.

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor,
pharmacist or nurse. This includes any possible side
effects not listed in this leaflet. You can also report
