FLIXONASE - HX for intranasal use. It has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, anti-edematous and anti-allergic effect.
Anti-inflammatory effect is realized as a result of the interaction of the drug with glucocorticosteroid receptors. Suppresses the proliferation of mast cells, eosinophils, lymphocytes, macrophages, neutrophils. Fluticasone propionate reduces the production of inflammatory mediators and a number of biologically active substances (including histamine, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, cytokines) during the early and late phases of an allergic reaction. It has a quick anti-inflammatory effect on the nasal mucosa. Antiallergic effect appears already after 2-4 h after the first use. Reduces sneezing, itching in the nose, rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, discomfort in the region of the paranasal sinuses and the sensation of pressure around the nose and eyes. In addition, it relieves the eye symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis. Reduction of symptoms (especially nasal congestion) persists for 24 hours after a single spray application at a dose of 200 μg.

Dosage and Administration
Flixonase is intended for intranasal use only. To achieve the full therapeutic effect of the drug should be used regularly.
Adults and children over 12 years old for the prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis and year-round allergic rhinitis, 100 mcg (2 doses) are prescribed in each nostril 1 time / day (total dose 200 mcg / day), preferably in the morning. After attaining symptom control, 50 mcg (1 dose) can be administered to each nostril 1 time / day (total dose 100 mcg / day).
In some cases, it is required to use 100 μg (2 doses) in each nostril 2 times / day (total dose 400 μg / day) for a short time in order to achieve control over the symptoms, after which the dose can be reduced. The maximum daily dose of the drug is 400 micrograms (4 doses in each nostril).
Elderly patients do not require correction dosing regimen.
Children aged 4-12 years for the prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, it is recommended to prescribe 50 μg (1 dose) in each nostril 1 time / day. The maximum daily dose of the drug is 200 micrograms (2 doses in each nostril).
The maximum therapeutic effect is manifested after 3-4 days of therapy. To achieve the full therapeutic effect, you must regularly use the drug.
Mode of application
Before use, gently shake the bottle, take it, placing the index and middle fingers on both sides of the tip, and the thumb - under the bottom. At the first use of the drug or a break in its use for more than 1 week, you should check the serviceability of the sprayer (having directed the tip away from you, make several presses until a small cloud emerges from the tip).
Next you need:
- clear your nose (blow your nose slightly);
- close one nostril and insert the tip into the other nostril;
- tilt your head slightly forward, while continuing to hold the aerosol bottle vertically;
- start breathing in through the nose and, continuing to inhale, press once with your fingers to dispense the preparation;
- exhale through the mouth.
Repeat the procedure for the second spray in the same nostril, if necessary. Then completely repeat the procedure described by inserting the tip into the other nostril.
After use, blot the tip with a clean cloth or handkerchief and cover it with a cap.
Rinse the sprayer at least 1 time per week. To this end, you must carefully remove the tip, rinse it in warm water. Shake off excess water and leave to dry in a warm place. Avoid overheating. Then carefully set the tip to its original place at the top of the brown bottle. Wear protective cap. If the tip hole is clogged, the tip should be removed as described above and left for some time in warm water. Then rinse under running cold water, dry and put on the bottle again. Do not clean the tip opening with a pin or other sharp objects.
Local reactions: dryness and irritation of the nasopharynx, unpleasant taste and smell, nosebleeds, burning sensation, nasal congestion; very rarely (less than 1/10 000 cases) - perforation of the nasal septum (especially during surgical interventions in the nasal cavity in history).
Allergic reactions: possible skin rash, swelling of the face and tongue; very rarely (less than 1/10 000 cases) - anaphylactic reactions and bronchospasm.
Very rare cases of development of glaucoma, elevation of intraocular pressure and cataracts have been reported during long-term use of fluticasone propionate, however, a causal relationship during clinical studies of up to 1 year has not been identified.
- children's age up to 4 years;
- hypersensitivity to fluticasone propionate and other components of the drug.
Due to the very low plasma concentrations of fluticasone propionate, after the application of Flixonase, a clinically significant interaction is unlikely.
With the simultaneous use of flicsonase with ritonavir, which is a strong inhibitor of the CYP3A4 isoenzyme, a significant increase in the concentration of fluticasone propionate in the blood plasma is possible. As a result, there is a sharp decrease in serum cortisol concentration and side effects due to the systemic action of corticosteroids, including Cushing syndrome and suppression of the function of the adrenal cortex, develop.
With simultaneous use of flicsonase with other CYP3A4 isoenzyme inhibitors, there is a negligible (with erythromycin) or a slight (with ketoconazole) increase in plasma concentrations of fluticasone propionate, which does not cause a marked decrease in serum cortisol concentrations.
Pregnancy and Lactation
It is not recommended to prescribe Flixonase during pregnancy. If necessary, the use of the drug in this category of patients should consider the expected benefit of therapy for the mother and the potential risk to the fetus.
Care must be taken when transferring patients with systemic corticosteroid therapy for treatment with Flixonase, if there is reason to assume dysfunction of the adrenal glands.
With prolonged use of the drug requires regular monitoring of the function of the adrenal cortex.
The patient should be warned that if after 7 days of constant use of the drug does not improve, then you should consult a doctor.
With continued use of the drug for more than 6 months, medical monitoring of the patient’s condition is necessary.
In most cases, the use of Flixonase allows you to successfully control the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis, but in some cases, with a very high concentration of allergens in the air in the summer, additional therapy may be required.
For relief of ophthalmic manifestations on the background of successful therapy of seasonal allergic rhinitis, additional treatment may be required.
Symptoms of acute and chronic overdose of the drug is not registered. When administered intranasally to healthy volunteers, 2 mg of fluticasone propionate 2 times / day. no effect on the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system was detected for 7 days.
