Omnaris Nasal Spray is a medication containing a man-made nasal corticosteroid called ciclesonide. We carry this medication in both the brand choice and generic alternative in 50mcg.
Omnaris Nasal Spray is used to relieve symptoms of stuffiness, congestion, runny nose, itching, and sneezing caused by seasonal and year-round nasal allergies. Allergies occur when the immune system reacts poorly to a substance called allergen. Seasonal allergies occur during certain seasons of the year and may also be referred to as “hay fever”. The common cause of seasonal allergies include tree, weed, or grass pollen or “outdoor triggers”. For year-round allergies, the allergens causing you symptoms are likely from “indoor triggers” such as house hold dust, mold spores, dust mites, cat or dog dander, and can also include pollen.
Omnaris Nasal Spray (ciclesonide) is effective at relieving symptoms of allergies due to the active ingredient being a steroid capable of preventing certain substances in your body from being released, which would cause inflammation.
Follow only the directions given to you by your doctor.
The recommended dose of Omnaris Nasal Spray is 2 sprays in each nostril once a day. Shake the bottle well before using. Avoid blowing your nose immediately after using the nasal spray. Do not use more than once within a 24 hour period. Rinse with water if the spray gets into your mouth or eyes.
1. Blow your nose
2. Keep head upright and inset the tip of the bottle into one nostril
3. While pinching the other nostril shut, gently spray the medicine into your nose and breathe in quickly
4. Repeat steps 2-3 in the second nostril
