What Dymista is and what it is used for
Dymista Nasal Spray contains two active substances:
azelastine hydrochloride and fluticasone propionate.
• Azelastine hydrochloride belongs to a group of medicines called antihistamines. Antihistamines work by preventing the effects of substances such as histamine that the body produces as part of an allergic reaction – thus reducing symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
• Fluticasone propionate belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids which reduces inflammation. Dymista Nasal Spray is used to relieve the symptoms of moderate to severe seasonal and perennia allergic rhinitis if the use of either intranasal antihistamine or corticosteroid alone is not considered sufficient. Seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis are allergic reactions to substances such as pollen (hayfever), house mites, moulds, dust or pets. Dymista Nasal Spray relieves the symptoms of allergies, for example: runny nose, post nasal drip, sneezing and itchy or blocked nose
