My doctor gave me a prescription for Flonase and wrote on the RX:
Flonase #2 Sy 2 sprays each  (I think it is Sy)
If I remember correctly, the previous prescription had the same thing but #4.
What does #2 and #4 mean? Does anyhone know?

I'm not sure but it might mean, two sprays in each nostril two times a day. Once you fill the script, the directions should be on the box.

But surely #4 would not (could not) mean 4 times a day. I do think that would be too many sprays.
I guess I will have to wasit until I go to drug store and ask them.
