Dymistais a dual-action nasal spray, a medication which is used to treat allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever but can also help with the troublesome symptoms of sinusitis.
Dymista Nasal Spray has two active ingredients which work together to fight the symptoms of sinusitis and hay fever by controlling the allergic reaction and soothing the inflammation, swelling and itchiness caused by airborne dust and pollen.
Dymista’s dual action formula releases an antihistamine known as azelastine hydrochloride, which blocks inflammatory chemicals in and around the nose known as histamine. And the second is a steroid known as fluticasone propionate. This reduces swelling and inflammation. The steroid becomes more effective with more regular usage.
This medicine is known to show its effect within 30 minutes of usage. The effects do gradually work up and become more effective over a two week period. It helps treat the following symptoms of allergic rhinitis:
