Beconase & Becodefence
How will Beconase ease my hay fever symptoms?
Beconase nasal spray contains an active ingredient called beclometasone, which is a type of medication known as a corticosteroid or steroid.
This means it helps to ease hay fever or allergy symptoms by reducing inflammation in your nasal passages.
This helps to clear your airways, relieving symptoms like a blocked nose, a runny nose, sneezing, and itching.
Just a couple of sprays into each nostril during the day is enough to help reduce your symptoms, but you’ll need to use Beconase every day for it to work effectively.
What’s the difference between Becodefence and Beconase?
Becodefence and Beconase are two different nasal sprays in the BecoAllergy range.
Beconase is a steroid spray used to ease 8 hay fever and allergy symptoms in adults for up to 24 hours.
Beconase is at its best when used every day, as its anti-inflammatory action will build.
On the other hand, Becodefence is a drug-free product used at the very first signs of hay fever symptoms to keep them from developing further.
Can I get hay fever tablets over the counter?
Different hayfever tablets contain different active ingredients. Remedies containing Chlorphenamine (Piriton), Promethazine (Phenergan) or Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) can be sold over the counter when their sale is reviewed by a pharmacist which is why we ask customers a few questions before they are able to purchase them. Over the counter hayfever tablets are not inherently "stronger" than those available on general sale. Tablets containing low doses of Cetirizine and Loratadine can be bought without pharmaceutical review and you may find that these are more effective for your particular symptoms.

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding you should speak to your doctor before taking any medication, including beclometasone.
Some medications may not be safe for you or your baby at this time.
However, doctors often recommend that pregnant or breastfeeding women start to treat their hay fever or allergy symptoms with a nasal spray or eye drops as a first port of call, so make sure you ask a medical professional whether beclometasone is suitable for you and only use it under their recommendation.
