What is Avamys
Avamys is a nasal spray used to treat symptoms such as sneezing and blocked noses, which present in hayfever and other allergic reactions. It contains 27.5 micrograms of a corticosteroid called Fluticasone Furoate. This works by reducing inflammation in your nose.
For adults, the recommended daily dose is two sprays into each nostril once daily to control symptoms. Once symptoms have eased, you should reduce your daily dose to one spray into each nostril, providing a total of 55 micrograms per day.

How do I use Avamys Nasal Spray?
Before using Avamys, you should read the patient information leaflet provided in the ‘Info Leaflet’ tab.
- Starting dose recommended for the treatment of allergic rhinitis (for adults and children over the age of 12):
‘TWO sprays into each nostril daily.’ (This can be reduced to ‘ONE spray into each nostril daily’ when symptoms become more controlled)
- Starting dose for children from 6-11 years old:
‘ONE spray into each nostril daily.’ (This can be increased to ‘TWO sprays if needed’, and when symptoms become more controlled again the dose can be reduced back to ’ONE spray into each nostril daily’).
- Patients under the age of 6 years old cannot use Avamys.
- Avamys works best if it is used on a regular basis.
- Symptom relief can begin up to 8 hours or more after you first start using Avamys, however, you will receive the maximum benefit when you use Avamys every day during the time that you are exposed to your allergy.
Is Avamys suitable for me?
In specific situations, Avamys nasal spray should be used with caution. It is advised not to use Avamys if you:
- Have problems with your liver
- Have glaucoma or cataracts
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
Be sure to tell our online doctor on our online assessment form, if you are taking other medication (including either prescribed medicines by your GP or purchased medicines from a pharmacy.)
Avamys may not be suitable for you or may need to be used with caution if you are taking certain medicines, for example:
- Steroid-based medicines (specifically ones taken orally)
- Ketoconazole (taken orally)
- If you are allergic to fluticasone furoate or any of the other ingredients.
How long can I use Avamys for?
Avamys will treat your symptoms throughout the day and night. Some people will not feel the full effects until several days after first using Avamys. However, it is usually effective within 8 to 24 hours of use. The usual starting dose is 2 sprays in each nostril once every day.
Can Avamys be used long term?
Intranasal steroid sprays are safe for long-term use, and there is little evidence to indicate they cause significant systemic side effects. However, patients with chronic rhinitis who might use them for long periods should be advised to use them only intermittently and at the lowest dose that controls their symptoms.
