Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day.

Clean the outside of the nose piece regularly with a clean dry tissue. Keep track of the number of sprays used from the container with the dose indicator. Discard the container after the dose indicator reads zero.
