A Spray For Clarity

Advantages: Instantly works, easy to use, great value
Disadvantages: Smells like pollen!
I suffer from Hayfever in the summer, and I also get sinus problems from time to time. My doctor prescribed me Beconase Nasal Spray.
This is basically just what it sounds like, a nasal spray for the treatment of hayfever and sinus irritations. At first I was not too sure about squirting something up my nose, but I was so desperate to be rid of the hayfever symptoms that anything was worth a go.
I actually found the spray to be really easy to use. You pop off the cap, and insert the nozzle into one nostril. Hold the other nostril closed and then press down on the nozzle base to release some spray into your nose. As you press down, take a sharp breath in through you nose and sniff the spray in as deep as you can. This will ensure it spreads to every where it needs to go. Then do the same in the other nostril. Wipe clean when you are done with it and place the cap back on. You can do one or two squirts per nostril, but it is only for use once a day unless different directions are given by your doctor.
I must admit at first this was a very strange sensation, but it is something I am now very used to doing. I can only describe it as something being squirted up your nose! The spray does have a scent to it. It is not an unpleasant scent, but oddly enough something I would liken to pollen! You may get an odd taste in the back of your throat for the first few uses, but I do not get this problem anymore.
Beconase works instantly, and as soon as I have used it, I feel my symptoms disappearing. Instantly my nose and eyes are clearer and it felt like a weight had been lifted off of my face. The relief lasted all day too, even during the summer months with the high pollen count. It is like a wonder product for me, as I had tried many other pills and sprays but nothing comes close to the feeling of relief I get with Beconase.
As I said before, my Beconase was prescribed by my doctor, but you do not need to have a prescription to get it. Pop into your local Boots, Superdrug or A Chemist and you can easily buy it over the counter. I believe it is around £6 a bottle, but I could be wrong on this price. Each bottle lasts a good while, but this will of course depend on how much you use it. I used mine every day in the summer, and it lasted me about 6 weeks. This would only work out at £1 a week (had I paid £6 for it) so I think this is brilliant value. If you only need to use it once in a while, then the value is even better.
I 100% recommend Beconase Nasal Spray to anyone who suffers with hayfever, allergies or sinus problems as it really is a wonderful amount of relief in a bottle.
Summary: A great way to rid hayfever symptoms
