Drug Class and Mechanism
Ciclesonide is a corticosteroid.
Ciclesonide is a pro-drug that is enzymatically hydrolyzed to a pharmacologically
active metabolite, C21-desisobutyryl-ciclesonide (des-ciclesonide or RM1) following
intranasal application. Des-ciclesonide has anti-inflammatory activity with affinity for the
glucocorticoid receptor that is 120 times higher than the parent compound.
The precise mechanism through which ciclesonide affects allergic rhinitis symptoms
is not known. Corticosteroids have been shown to have a wide range of effects on
multiple cell types (e.g., mast cells, eosinophils, neutrophils, macrophages, and lymphocytes) and mediators (e.g., histamine, eicosanoids, leukotrienes, and cytokines) involved in allergic inflammation.
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember.
You should use Ciclospray (Ciclesonide Nasal Spray) at regular intervals since its effectiveness depends on its regular use.
Store this medication at room temperature.
Warnings and Precautions when using Ciclospray
Patients using corticosteroid drugs that weaken the immune system are more susceptible to infection and should avoid exposure to chickenpox or measles. If you have tuberculosis, eye herpes, or untreated infections of any kind, speak to your doctor before using Ciclospray. Yeast infections of the nose and throat may occur.
Patients who have recently had an ulcer in the nose, trauma to the nose or nasal surgery should not use Ciclospray until healing has occurred. Rare instances of nasal irritation and eye problems have been reported following the use of nasal steroids. Talk with your doctor if you have a history of eye problems or experience a change in vision.
Patients taking higher doses of a nasal steroid than recommended, or certain other at-risk individuals, may experience symptoms of a hormonal imbalance, including very rarely changes in menstruation, acne, and weight gain. Like all steroid nasal sprays, Ciclospray may cause slowed growth in children. The growth of children using Ciclospray should be monitored routinely by a healthcare professional.
