and you can taste it when it's up your nose and goes down the back of your throat!

Not the best product regarding to international reviews , I am allergic to pollen and only prescription drugs working for like a budesonide nasal spray , Rhinocort agua or Flonase the rest is rubbish .

Tilt your chin towards your chest and don't snort up too hard and that should help, I do agree it tastes awful but with practice you can get it just to the right spot.

You're advising no-one should bother with this as it doesn't work for you? Or that they shouldn't use it because it has bad "international" reviews?

Budesonide nasal spray and Rhinocort Aqua are both the same thing... Flonase can be bought over the counter so isn't a prescription only medicine and both of the products you mention are from the same group of drugs and work in the same way as Beconase (beclametasone nasal spray) - they are all steroid nasal sprays.

Some work better for some people than others... but they're all pretty similar and no single one is 'best'.

£2.50 is a great price for what I can assure you is a useful drug for many people. Steroid nasal sprays work by reducing inflammation and are most effective when taken over a number of days - for short-term relief use an anti-histamine.

As with all steroid nasal sprays, long-term use can result in the odd nose bleed for some people.

I wonder if this will work if you're constipated

Only 100 sprays though.

Half the size of prescription spray. I usually buy an identical generic one which is 200 sprays for just under £3.

Probably dependent upon where you spray it?! oO

This helps hugely with hay fever. Online reviews can go whistle.

Where do you get the generic one for under £3? last time I checked even the generic was around £5-6

Hot from me. This is the only hayfever medicine that seems to work for me.

Useful, thank you - I too thought the generic could only be had for £5-6.

edit: Bit of useful advice - if you have allergic rhinitis stay away from the decongestant nasal sprays (sudafed and the like). Although they work, there is a rebound effect - when you stop using them it actually causes congestion so you can end up in a never ending cycle. The oral ones don't suffer from the same effect but they can cause sleep problems (keeping you awake) and raised blood pressure.

Tried sudafed nasal spray once, omg the pain! Guess my airways were already inflamed and that made them worse.

Google organic tea tree oil diluted and placed into a nasal spray bottle and it can reduce polyps and clear up infection. I tried it and was amazed!

Tried lots and lots and lots of products over the last 35 years for hayfever & Beconase if the only one I've used in about the last 10years, yes takes a few days to get into your stem but works for ME brilliantly, highly recommend

Ah - I smell a rat. oO

Heat. Bought the Tesco brand because this was still full price. Hope it's still there when I get round to it....
