Butacort general information

What is Butacort used for?

Butacort nasal spray 100mcg is used for short term prevention and treatment of allergic rhinitis caused by seasonal allergy to pollen, also known as hay fever.  Butacort 100 is also used for prevention and treatment of perennial allergy to year-round allergens such as animal fur, mould and house dust mites.  Butacort 100 relieves symptoms of allergic rhinitis including nasal congestion, runny itchy nose, sneezing, tearing, itchy, red, and puffy eyes and problems sleeping.  Butacort nasal spray 100mcg is also used for vasomotor rhinitis, also known as non-allergic rhinitis or idiopathic rhinitis (with no apparent cause).  Vasomotor rhinitis is caused by dilation of the blood vessels lining the nose resulting in inflammation and swelling of the nasal membranes and causing symptoms including chronic sneezing or a congested, drippy nose but does not include typical symptoms of allergy like itchy nose and eyes.  Butacort nasal spray 100mcg is also used to treat nasal polyps, which are growths in the nose that often develop at the same time as allergic rhinitis and are thought to be caused by the allergy, with symptoms including trouble breathing through the nose, loss of smell, post-nasal drip (accumulation of mucus at the back of the throat) and runny nose.  Butacort 100 causes the polyps to shrinks and provides symptomatic relief; it can significantly delay the recurrence of nasal polyps following nasal polypectomy (surgical removal of polyps) and if they do recur their size is greatly reduced.  

How does Butacort work?

Butacort nasal spray 100mcg contains budesonide, a potent corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictor properties that is used to control local inflammation in the nasal passages.  Budesonide in Butacort 100 blocks the local production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and cytokines, reduces permeability of capillaries, which prevents the migration of cells involved in the allergic response into the tissues and causes vasoconstriction (narrowing) of the blood vessels in the nasal lining.  These actions of budesonide in Butacort 100 block the allergic response and reduce signs of inflammation, including mucus production, swelling and irritation, which helps relieve symptoms like runny itchy nose, nasal congestion and sneezing.   

What does Butacort contain?

Butacort nasal spray contains the active ingredient budesonide, delivered into the nasal passages through a nasal adaptor by a metered atomising pump, as a dose of100mcg per spray.  Each bottle provides 200 actuations (sprays).  It also contains glucose (anhydrous), dispersible cellulose, potassium sorbate, disodium edetate, polysorbate, hydrochloric acid and purified water.

Treating allergic rhinitis with Butacort

Butacort nasal spray 100mcg contains budesonide, a potent corticosteroid that is used for the prevention and treatment of allergic rhinitis caused by seasonal allergy to pollen, also known as hay fever, and for perennial allergy to year-round allergens such as animal fur, mould and house dust mites.  Budesonide in Butacort 100 is an anti-inflammatory with anti-allergy and vasoconstrictor properties.  It helps control local inflammation in the nasal passages by blocking the local production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and cytokines and also causing vasoconstriction (narrowing) of the blood vessels in the nasal lining.  These actions of budesonide in Butacort 100 reduces signs of inflammation, including mucus production, swelling and irritation, which helps relieve symptoms of allergic rhinitis like runny itchy nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, tearing, itchy, red, and puffy eyes and problems sleeping.  

Butacort for vasomotor rhinitis

Butacort nasal spray 100mcg contains budesonide, a potent corticosteroid that is used to treat vasomotor rhinitis, also known as non-allergic rhinitis or idiopathic rhinitis (with no apparent cause).  Vasomotor rhinitis is inflammation and swelling of the membranes lining the nose due to irritation by an allergen or irritant like dry air, air pollutants or spicy foods and is caused by dilation of the blood vessels lining the nose.  This causes symptoms including chronic sneezing or a congested, drippy nose but does not include typical symptoms of allergy like itchy nose and eyes.  Budesonide in Butacort 100 is an anti-inflammatory with vasoconstrictor properties and helps control local inflammation in the nasal passages by blocking the local production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and cytokines and also causing vasoconstriction (narrowing) of the blood vessels in the nasal lining.  These actions of budesonide in Butacort 100 result in constriction of the nasal blood vessels, which reduces the swelling and inflammation of the nasal membranes, also reducing chronic sneezing, mucus production (dripping nose), swelling and congestion.

What are the side effects of Butacort?

The most commonly reported side effects when taking Butacort 100 include cough, dyspnoea (shortness of breath), dryness and irritation in the nose and throat, sore throat, dry mucous membranes, dry mouth, increased sputum (mucus), epistaxis (nose bleeding), sneezing after spraying, nasal crust, sinusitis, headache, dizziness, tiredness.  Butacort 100 acts locally with reduced risk of systemic effects.

You should not use Butacort nasal spray 100mcg if you:

  • are pregnant or are breastfeeding, without discussion with your doctor
  • have a severe nasal infection, especially candidiasis (thrush)
  • bleed easily or have recurring nose bleeds
  • are using other inhaled or oral corticosteroids
  • are taking medicines that may interact with Butacort like the antifungal ketoconazole, cimetidine for reflux, or antibiotics like erythromycin.
