Metatop Nasal Spray is a medicine used to prevent and treat allergic symptoms like sneezing and runny nose due to allergies, nasal congestion, and nasal polyps. It works by reducing swelling and irritation in your nose and belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids.

You should always use Metatop Nasal Spray as advised by your doctor. To get the full benefit of the medicine you should take it regularly. Blow your nose gently before using it, keep one nostril closed while applying the medicine into the other, and then sniff hard to make sure it reaches deep into the nose. Repeat for the other nostril.

The most common side effects of this medicine include nasal irritation, sore throat, wheezing, nosebleed, upper respiratory tract infection, viral infections, and vomiting. If you are worried about any of the side effects, let your doctor know. Your doctor might be able to help you cope with the side effects. In general, you should try to avoid situations which make your symptoms worse (things like pollen and dust mites) and it’s best not to smoke.

Before using this medicine, you should ask your doctor for advice if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Let your doctor also know if you have any other medical conditions taking any other medicines.



In Treatment of Nasal congestion (blocked nose)

Metatop Nasal Spray helps shrink the blood vessels and provides rapid relief that lasts for several hours. It is a safe medicine which can be used to treat congestion caused by colds or allergies such as hay fever. It should be used as prescribed and should not be taken for too long. Talk to your doctor if your symptoms do not improve.

In Treatment of Nasal polyps

Metatop Nasal Spray reduces inflammation and shrinks the polyps. It helps relive symptoms like nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing associated with nasal polyps. By targeting the underlying inflammation, this medicine helps improve nasal airflow and overall quality of life for individuals with nasal polyps.



Use this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Insert the bottle tip into one nostril and close the other nostril. Direct the spray towards the sides of your nostril, away from the cartilage dividing the two sides of your nose. As you spray, breath gently and keep the head upright. Repeat the same process for the other nostrils.



Metatop Nasal Spray is a steroid. It gets absorbed into the cells of the inner surface of the nose and works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) and allergies. This relieves blocked or runny nose, sneezing and sinus discomfort, and other symptoms caused by nasal congestion and nasal polyps.
