If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Follow the instructions for test sprays in the air if you are using the spray pump for the first time or if you have not used it for 3 days or more. A fine mist is a sign that the spray pump is working properly. Gently blow your nose before using Astelin. Use Astelin in the nose as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice a day in both nostrils. Do not spray it in your eyes or mouth. To prevent a bitter taste in your mouth, breathe in gently and do not tilt your head back after using Astelin. The Dosage of Astelin is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Use Astelin regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day. Do not increase your dose or use Astelin more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Keep track of the number of sprays used from the spray pump.

Tell your doctor if you do not get better or if you get worse.
