Important Tips about using SYNAREL

Your pump should produce a fine mist, which can only happen by a quick and firm pumping action. It is normal to see some larger droplets of liquid within the fine mist. However, if SYNAREL comes out of the pump as a thin stream of liquid instead of a fine mist, SYNAREL may not work as well, and you should talk to your pharmacist.

Be sure to clean the Spray Tip before and after every use. (See Step 4). Failure to do this may result in a clogged tip that may cause you not to get the right amount of medicine that is prescribed for you.

The pump is made to deliver only a set amount of medicine, no matter how hard you pump it.

Do not try to make the tiny hole in the spray tip larger. If the hole is made larger the pump will deliver a wrong dose of SYNAREL.

Figure A

To Prime the Pump:

Figure B
Remove and save the white safety clip and the clear plastic dust cover from the spray bottle (See Figure B).
Figure C
Hold the bottle in an upright position away from you. Put two fingers on the "shoulders" of the spray bottle and put your thumb on the bottom of the bottle. Apply pressure evenly to the "shoulders" and push down quickly and firmly 7 to 10 times, until you see a fine spray. Usually you will see the spray after about 7 pumps. (See Figure C).
The pump is now primed. Priming only needs to be done 1 time, when you start using a new bottle of SYNAREL. You will waste your medicine if you prime the pump every time you use it and may not have enough medicine for 30 days of treatment.
Figure D
Clean the Spray Tip after Priming:
Hold the bottle in a horizontal position. Rinse the spray tip with warm water while wiping the tip with your finger or soft cloth for 15 seconds.
Wipe the spray tip with a soft cloth or tissue to dry.
Replace the white safety clip and the clear plastic dust cover on the spray bottle (See Figure D).
Do Not try to clean the spray tip using a pointed object. Do Not take apart the pump.

How to use the SYNAREL Nasal Spray unit

Figure E
Gently blow your nose to clear both nostrils before you use SYNAREL nasal spray (See Figure E).
Figure F
Clean the Spray Tip. Remove and save the white safety clip and the clear plastic dust cover from the spray bottle (See Figure F).
Hold the bottle in a horizontal position. Rinse the spray tip with warm water while wiping the tip with your finger or soft cloth for 15 seconds.
Wipe the spray tip with a soft cloth or tissue to dry.
Do Not try to clean the spray tip using a pointed object.
Do Not try to take apart the pump.
Figure G
Bend your head forward and put the spray tip into one nostril. The tip should not reach too far into your nose. Aim the spray tip toward the back and outer side of your nose (See Figure G).
Figure H
Close the other nostril with your finger (See Figure H).
Apply pressure evenly to the "shoulders" and push down quickly and firmly. Pump the sprayer 1 time, at the same time as you sniff in gently. If the sprayer fails to deliver the dose clean the spray tip (See Step 6 Clean the Spray Tip).
Figure I
Remove the spray tip from your nose and tilt your head backwards for a few seconds. This lets the SYNAREL spray spread over the back of your nose (See Figure I).
Do not spray in your other nostril unless your doctor has instructed you to do so.
Figure J
Clean the Spray Tip after use (See Step 4).

It is important that you clean the spray tip before and after every use. Failure to do this may result in a clogged tip that may cause you to get the wrong dose of medicine.
