Medication features

Dymista nasal spray is used to treat hayfever and other common allergy symptoms. It has two active ingredients, Azelastine Hydrochloride - which reduces the amount of histamine the body produces and lowers the allergic response, and the steroid Fluticasone Propionate. This reduces inflammation of the nasal cavity and controls the response within those cells.

About Dymista

Dymista is an advanced, dual-action nasal spray specifically designed for individuals aged 12 and older who suffer from allergic rhinitis. Its primary use is in treating hay fever, a common allergic condition. Dymista's efficacy lies in its unique combination of two active ingredients: azelastine and fluticasone. Azelastine is an antihistamine that targets and reduces allergic symptoms, while fluticasone is a corticosteroid that decreases inflammation in the nasal passages. Together, they offer a comprehensive approach to managing hay fever symptoms, such as sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy or runny nose. The dual-action formula of Dymista sets it apart from other treatments, providing a more holistic approach to symptom relief.

How does Dymista spray work?

Dymista nasal spray works through the combined actions of its two primary ingredients. Azelastine hydrochloride, as an antihistamine, blocks the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms. By doing so, it effectively reduces symptoms like sneezing, itchiness, and nasal discomfort. Fluticasone, on the other hand, is a corticosteroid that works by reducing the inflammation and swelling in the nasal passages, which is often a direct result of allergic reactions.

The combination of these two ingredients in Dymista provides a comprehensive treatment approach, addressing both immediate allergic reactions and long-term inflammation, thereby offering a more complete solution to managing hay fever symptoms.

Using Dymista Nasal Spray

To achieve the best results from Dymista Nasal Spray, adults and children over 12 should follow the recommended usage of one spray in each nostril twice daily.

It's important to use the spray regularly at the same times each day, as consistent use enhances its effectiveness in symptom control. Before using the spray for the first time, it's recommended to prime the pump by pressing it several times until a fine mist is produced. This ensures that you receive the correct dose with each use.

Before using Dymista you will need to blow your nose to clear both nostrils, then slightly tilt your head back, and slowly exhale, using your free hand close to the nostril you are not spraying. Push down and on the pump and take 1 spray into your nostril, repeat for the other side.  

This can be done a maximum of twice daily, and you should start to see some effects within 30 to 60 minutes, but it can take on some occasions a few days to get the full benefit.

Additionally, regularly cleaning the spray nozzle and avoiding sharing the spray can help prevent infections and maintain hygiene.

You should not exceed the recommended dose.

How effective is Dymista?

Dymista is widely recognized as an effective treatment for allergic rhinitis, particularly in patients who have not found relief with standard antihistamines or nasal steroids alone. Clinical studies and patient reports often highlight its effectiveness in reducing symptoms like nasal congestion, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes. However, it's important to acknowledge that individual responses to medications can vary.

Some patients may find that Dymista provides significant relief, while others might not experience the same level of effectiveness. In cases where Dymista does not meet the patient's needs, alternatives like Beconase, which contains a different active ingredient, may be suggested. Consulting with a healthcare professional is crucial in these situations to determine the most suitable treatment plan based on individual symptoms and medical history.
