Dymista nasal spray
Dymista is a nasal spray that contains two types of medicines – an antihistamine, and a steroid. Azelastine works to stop or reduce the affects that histamine has on your body when it detects an allergen, whilst fluticasone works to relieve inflammation in the nasal passage, helping you to breathe more easily.
Dymista’s dual action response to symptoms of allergic rhinitis means that it should start to work within an hour or so, making it one of the fastest methods of relieving or preventing allergy symptoms.
Unfortunately, Dymista nasal spray might not be suitable for everyone, as it may make some conditions worse or interact with certain medications. Because of this, we recommend reading the patient information leaflet online before you buy Dymista, as it contains all of the information you need to know about the medication and who it’s suitable for.
If you have any of the following conditions, we would advise you to avoid Dymista unless your GP has advised you otherwise:
- Allergic to azelastine or fluticasone
- Recent nose operation
- Infection within the nose
- Untreated infection
- History of glaucoma
- Change in vision
- Impaired adrenal function
- Severe liver disease
In addition to this, we also advise you to speak to your doctor if you’re taking any of the following medications, as these are listed in the Dymista patient information leaflet as potential interactions:
- HIV treatments
What is Dymista used for?
Dymista nasal spray is mostly used to treat symptoms of allergic rhinitis, such as a runny or itchy nose, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, sneezing, and itchy or watery eyes, alongside some other symptoms.
Dymista spray can be used for both seasonal and perennial allergies, as the body responds in the same way when it detects an allergen, and can’t determine between something that’s seasonal and something that’s there all year round. Hayfever is classed as a seasonal allergy, as symptoms only occur when pollen counts are high in the spring and summer, whilst allergies to animal dander and dust mites are seen as perennial allergies as they’re around all year. No matter what triggers your allergic rhinitis, Dymista can help to relieve the symptoms and give you a better quality of life.
Unfortunately, Dymista can’t help with other conditions such as sinusitis, as this requires a different type of treatment, and isn’t caused by the production of histamine. However, your GP may advise a steroid-only nasal spray such as Avamys to reduce inflammation, but this is something you should discuss with them, as they may need to examine you.
Hayfever nasal spray
Hayfever nasal sprays are a popular treatment for allergic rhinitis, as the medications work locally to reduce symptoms. Dymista is one of the only hayfever nasal sprays that contain both an antihistsamine and a steroid, but other options are available if Dymista isn’t sutiable for you.
Other hayfever nasal sprays that are available from Doctor4U include:
If you’re looking to buy a nasal spray due to suffering from hayfever, it might help to take a look at the pollen forecast from the met office, as this can help you to made a decision on when to start treatment if you know that you suffer with a pollen allergy.
Dymista side effects
Despite the fact that Dymista is generally very well tolerated by those that use it, it’s still a medication and does have the potential to cause side effects. Luckily, most of the side effects are mild, or tend to wear off within a few hours. However, it’s important to know that with any medicine that you take, the benefits should outweigh the side effects, so if you find that you’re struggling with any of the following symptoms since using Dymista, you should speak to your GP about alternative options:
- Bitter taste in the mouth
- Unpleasant smell
- Nasal irritation
- Stinging, itching or dryness of the nose
- Dry throat
- Throat irritation
- Dry mouth
More side effects, including those that are rare, are available to read I the patient information leaflet which comes with your order when you buy Dymista. We recommend reading this thoroughly before you use any of the medication.
The usual dose of Dymista for adults is one spray in each nostril in the morning and evening (a maximum of 4 sprays per day).
If you find that this isn’t relieving your symptoms, you should make an appointment to see your GP to see if there’s anything else that you could be taking, either in addition to, or instead of Dymista.
You should always make sure that you’re using Dymista properly in order to receive the full dose. To do this, you must prime the spray before its first use by pressing down on the spray pump 6 times until you see a fine mist. This means that the spray is now ready to use. To administer the medication, you should follow these instructions, which are also outlined in the patient information leaflet:
- Blow your nose gently
- Lightly shake the bottle of Dymista a few times
- Place the spray tip inside one of your nostrils, closing the other one with your finger
- Keep your head tilted down, not back, and press down on the spray pump whilst sniffing gently
- Breathe out through your mouth
- Repeat the process for your other nostril
- Wipe the spray pump with a tissue after each use to ensure that it stays clean and free from bacteria.
You should follow these instructions twice a day to make sure that you’re getting the full recommended dosage. Make sure to breathe in gently and not tilt your head back after using Dymista, as this might affect how it works.
