General Information On Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray
Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray helps treat seasonal or year-round nasal symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, and a runny nose. It can be used by adults and children aged 6 years or older. The generic name of Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray is Budesonide. Budesonide is a corticosteroid and is the key ingredient in the drug.
When the body's immune system reacts to normally harmless substances, it causes allergies. Such an allergic reaction leads to inflammation in the nasal sinuses. Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray is a corticosteroid and limits the ability of the body to produce an immune system reaction, thereby decreasing inflammation. The effects of Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray are generally limited to the nose. You must not breathe too deeply while spraying the medicine into your nose or try to inhale the spray as the drug starts working only when it is in contact with the inner surface of the nostrils. Spraying Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray on the nasal septum (the wall that separates your nostrils) increases the risk of nosebleeds.
Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray is available in two strengths. There are 120 sprays in each bottle, with either 32 mcg or 64 mcg of the medication in each spray. The nonmedical ingredients include polysorbate 80, glucose anhydrous, microcrystalline cellulose, hydrochloric acid, disodium edetate, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, purified water and potassium sorbate.
Side effects of Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray
Before you buy Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray online or from a pharmacy, inform your doctor if you are allergic to its ingredients or if you have any other allergies. Also tell your doctor about your medical history, especially of infections (including tuberculosis), eye problems (such as glaucoma, cataract) and recent nose problems (such as injury, ulcers, surgery).
Seek emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Rhinocort AQ Nasal Spray: difficulty breathing, hives, or swelling of your tongue, throat, face, or lips.
There is a rare possibility of corticosteroids taken through the nose getting absorbed into the bloodstream. If this happens, it can lead to serious side effects such as:
- Unusual/extreme tiredness

- Vision problems
- Increased thirst and urination
- Severe or persistent nosebleeds
- Sores in the nose that do not heal for a long time

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.
