In most instances, an overdose of budesonide nasal spray is unlikely to cause serious problems. Even using an entire bottle at once is not likely to cause serious overdose symptoms. However, using too much budesonide nasal spray over a long period of time may cause problems.

If you forget to take your budesonide nasal spray dose, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
