Breathe Easier with Budesonide Nasal Spray

Budesonide nasal spray delivers fast relief from congestion and sinus pressure. The active ingredient budesonide reduces inflammation and opens nasal passages within hours, providing 12 hours of clearer breathing. Unlike oral decongestants, budesonide targets the source of symptoms – swollen nasal membranes. Don't let congestion slow you down. Ask your pharmacist if budesonide nasal spray is right for you.
