Usage and Instructions
Pirinase is most effective to start using Pirinase a few days before you expect to get symptoms, for example before the start of the pollen season, or if you know you're going to be in contact with pets that give you the allergy. For maximum benefit, the spray should be used regularly while you're still being exposed to the allergen.
Follow the instructions provided with the nasal spray. You should shake the bottle gently before use. Be careful not to get the spray in your eyes.
Before you use the nasal spray for the first time it needs to be primed by pumping it into the air a few times until a fine mist is produced. Hold the bottle upright and away from you while you're doing this. If the nasal spray hasn't been used for a few days you should reprime it in this way before using it again.
Adults ages 18 years and over:
Two sprays into each nostril once a day, preferably in the morning. Once your symptoms are under control you should reduce your dose to one spray in each nostril once a day. The spray should preferably be used in the morning, though it can be used any time of day if necessary.
If your symptoms are very bad you can use two sprays in each nostril twice a day to begin with, and then reduce to once a day once your symptoms have improved.
Always use the lowest dose necessary to control your symptoms. Do not use more than the recommended dose.
If you forget to use your nasal spray just leave out the forgotten dose. Don't use a double dose to make up for a missed dose.
If your symptoms last for more than seven days despite using Pirinase, get medical advice from your doctor.
