Rhinocort Aqua Nasal Spray with budesonide is now available OTC at all major pharmacies and retailers.

Rhinocort is designed to provide 24-hour relief from allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, and congestion.

“For consumers who are suffering from nasal allergy symptoms, Rhinocort Allergy Spray works all day and all night to relieve their most frustrating nasal allergy symptoms of nasal congestion, sneezing, and itchy and runny nose,” said Purvi Farahi, group brand director of  Allergy at McNeil Consumer Healthcare, in a press release. “Rhinocort Allergy Spray expands our allergy product offerings and gives these allergy sufferers a new tool in their toolkit.”

McNeil originally acquired the US OTC rights for Rhinocort Aqua from AstraZeneca in 2014.

A new ad campaign for the OTC allergy spray will run nationally across the country.

Adverse effects associated with the allergy spray include unpleasant taste, nose or throat dryness, cough, sneezing, and nose bleeds.

In some instances, individuals who are allergic to Rhinocort may experience rash, itching, severe dizziness, and wheezing.
