Forms and presentation
Each dose contains:
Fluticasone propionate: 50 mcg.
Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid for topical action.
Treatment and prophylaxis of seasonal allergic rhinitis, including fever and perennial rhinitis.
Aqueous nasal Fluticasone propionate is also indicated in patients with alleric rhinitis, for the management of sinus pain and oppression associated with it.
RINISONA is contraindicated in patients with a hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
The concomitant use of intranasal corticosteroids with other inhaled corticosteroids could increase the risk of hypercorticism and/or suppression of the HPA axis.
Persons who are using drugs that suppress the immune system are more susceptible to infections than healthy individuals.
Coadministration of fluticasone propionate and ritonavir is not recommended unless the potential benefit to the patient outweighs the risk of systematic corticosteroid side effects.
No clinical data.
