General Information On Beconase Aq
Beconase Aq is used for treating nasal symptoms including sneezing, runny nose and congestion, caused either due to year-round or seasonal allergy. The generic name of the drug is Beclomethasone, and it belongs to the class of steroids.
The medicine is available in the form of a nasal spray. It works by preventing the release of certain substances in the patient’s body that are responsible for causing inflammation.
If you have recently had a surgical procedure to remove nasal polyps, your doctor may recommend you to buy Beconase Aq in order to prevent them from coming back.
Side effects of Beconase Aq
Beconase Aq is not meant to be used by patients suffering from herpes simplex virus in the eyes, glaucoma, cataracts, ulcers or sores inside the nose, or tuberculosis or any such infection. This drug should also not be used by pregnant women as it may cause serious harm to the unborn baby.
Some mild side effects that Beconase Aq may trigger include sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose, irritation or dryness in the throat or nose, unpleasant smell or taste, nausea, lightheadedness, headache, and white patches or sores around or inside the nose. Although these side effects can be easily managed with or without medical help, you should inform your doctor if any of these become too bothersome or unmanageable.
Notify your doctor immediately if you develop ongoing or severe nose bleeds, sores inside the nose, wheezing, vision problems, trouble breathing, flu symptoms, body ache, chills or fever. These may be signs of some serious underlying condition and need to be treated as soon as possible.
Some hypersensitive patients may also develop an allergic reaction after using Beconase Aq. Symptoms of an allergy include difficulty breathing, facial swelling, hives or severe dizziness. Stop using the drug and inform your doctor immediately if you have an allergy to Beconase Aq.
Dosage of Beconase Aq
Adults will be advised to take one or two inhalations in each nostril twice a day. This will amount to Beconase Aq 168 to 336mcg per day. Children should start with one inhalation in each nostril twice a day. If desired effects are not achieved, they may be advised to take two inhalations in each nostril twice a day. Children over 6 years of age should not be given Beconase Aq 336mcg a day. This drug is not recommended to be used by children less than 6 years of age.
Some patients may notice the benefits of Beconase Aq after around 3 days of starting the treatment, while some patients may take as long as 2 weeks to notice the positive results. Therefore, you should continue using the medicine exactly as prescribed by the doctor.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
