How Does Dymista Work?
Dymista nasal spray is often taken to treat the signs of allergies and irritation in the nose and nasal passages. It contains the steroid fluticasone propionate. This steroid helps to manage the inflammation and swelling associated with hay fever and other allergies. This can help to reduce symptoms including nasal congestion, itching, sneezing, irritation, and the discomfort of allergies affecting the nose.
In addition, azelastine hydrochloride is included. This antihistamine helps to minimise the allergic response to allergens by blocking the pathways that cause histamine to be released. This in turn helps to treat the symptoms of an allergy.
Dymista is usually only prescribed if single drug steroid or antihistamine nasal sprays have not resolved the symptoms.
