What is Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray?

Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray is a prescription medication that is used to treat seasonal and year-round allergies and to prevent nasal polyps from returning. Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray contains the corticosteroid budesonide. Budesonide works by reducing substances that can cause inflammation and swelling in the nasal passages.

Make sure to always read the patient information and instructions before using this medication. Always follow your doctor’s directions.

  • Prime the nasal spray by pumping eight sprays into the air before using Rhinocort for the first time or if it has not been used in over two weeks.
  • Gently blow your nose and shake your nasal spray before using it.
  • Insert the tip of Rhinocort into your nostril. Keep your head upright and use your finger to close your other nostril.
  • Inhale while spraying the medication into your nostril. Repeat with the other nostril.
  • Avoid blowing your nose for a few minutes after using this medication.


Tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • About your drug and other allergies
  • If you take any other prescription or over-the-counter medications
  • Your medical history particularly of liver disease, weak immune system, tuberculosis, nasal sores, nasal ulcers, herpes virus of the eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, or a serious bacterial viral or fungal infection.
  • If you have recently had nose surgery or a nose injury
  • If you are pregnant or planning pregnancy
