Telnase Nasal Spray contains a corticosteroid and is used to treat seasonal allergic rhinitis (hayfever) and perennial allergic rhinitis.
Hayfever produces symptoms such as sneezing, itching and runny nose. Sometimes you can get these symptoms all year long and this is called perennial allergic rhinitis. It is often caused by dust mites or hair from a cat or a dog.
Telnase sprayed into your nose will relieve the sneezing, itchy, runny nose you experience with hayfever or perennial allergic rhinits. Telnase does not cause drowsiness and does not appear to affect your ability to drive or to operate machinery.
