Flonase Dosage — Flonase is a prescription medication for both allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. Thus the dose will vary from person to person. Factors that usually affect the flonase dosage, such as:
— Patient Age
— Whether patient taking other medications
— Patient overall health
It is important that you use flonase exactly as directed by your doctor. Don’t adjust the dosage unless you’re told to do so by your health care provider.
Flonase dosage information
Maximum dosage of flonase is 200 mcg in a day, 100 mcg for each nostril. Adult patients will usually be prescribed with 200 mcg daily, two sprays to each nostril. It can be administered by spraying two times to one nostril at each scheduled time or by spraying one time to each nostril at each scheduled time.
Your doctor might decrease the dose when he/she think that you already achieved control over the symptoms. Usually the flonase dosage will be decreased to 100 mcg daily, one spray to each nostril.
Pediatric patients over 4 years old usually start with 100 mcg dose in a day, one spray to each nostril. After the rhinitis symptoms are controlled the dose will be decreased to one spray (50 mcg) to one nostril in a day or in another words one spray to each nostril in two days time. If after regular use in several days the symptoms don’t improve the doctor usually will increase the dosage to 200 mcg daily, just like flonase dosage for adults mentioned above.
Again, you need to consult with your doctor first before you use flonase and use it as prescribed for optimum effect.
A 16gr flonase sold in the pharmacy stores is able to deliver 120 shots that contain exactly 50 mcg of superfine fluticasone propionate. The bottle is not guaranteed to deliver the correct flonase dosage after 120 shots. Therefore, after it reaches that number you’re advised to throw the bottle or ask your doctor whether you need a refill.
