Dosage & Administration
Dosage of intranasal Beclomethasone Dipropionate must be carefully adjusted according to individual requirements and response.
Adults: Recommended usual dosage: 02 (two) sprays (50 µgm/spray) in each nostril twice daily. For some patients, 01 (one) spray in each nostril 3 to 4 times daily may be preferred. Total daily doses of 400 µgm (08 sprays) should not generally be exceeded.
Children (6 to 12 years of age): Usual dose: 01 (one) spray in each nostril twice daily. Patients not adequately responding, or those with more severe symptoms may use 02 (two) sprays in each nostril twice daily.
Children under 6 years of age: Not recommended since safety profile studies have not been conducted. After the first few days, patients may be able to reduce their dosage to 100 µg (one spray in each nostril) once daily for maintenance therapy.
Pregnancy & Lactation
Beclomethasone should be used during pregnancy, if the potential benefit justifies the potential risks to fetus. In addition, as there is natural increase in corticosteroid production during pregnancy, most women will require a lower exogenous corticosteroid dose and many will not need corticosteroid treatment during pregnancy.
As other corticosteroids are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Beclomethasone nasal spray is administered to a nursing woman.
