TREATMENT OF MILD TO MODERATE UNCOMPLICATED ACUTE RHINOSINUSITIS
The usual recommended dose for acute rhinosinusitis is two sprays (50 mcg/spray) in each nostril twice daily (total daily dose of 400 mcg). If symptoms worsen during treatment, the patient should be advised to consult their physician.

The therapeutic effects of corticosteroids, unlike those of decongestants, are not immediate. Since the effect of Modexa nasal spray depends on its regular use, patients should be instructed to take the nasal inhalation at regular intervals and not, as with other nasal sprays, as they feel necessary.
In the presence of excessive nasal mucous secretion or edema of the nasal mucosa, the drug may fail to reach the site of action. In such cases, it is advisable to use a nasal vasoconstrictor for 2 to 3 days prior to starting treatment with Modexa nasal spray. Patients should be instructed on the correct method of use, which is to blow the nose, then insert the nozzle carefully into the nostril, compress the opposite nostril and actuate the spray while inspiring through the nose, with the mouth closed.
