What is Rhinolast?
Rhinolast nasal spray treats symptoms of allergic rhinitis caused by both seasonal allergies such as hayfever and allergies that might affect you all year round. Symptoms of these allergies can include a blocked, itchy, or runny nose and sneezing.
How does Rhinolast work?
Rhinolast nasal spray contains the active ingredient azelastine hydrochloride, which is an antihistamine. Antihistamines counter the effects of a substance called histamine, which the body produces when it comes into contact with an allergen.
Do not use Rhinolast if you’re allergic to azelastine hydrochloride or any of the other ingredients in this medication.
Talk to your doctor before using Rhinolast if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

Use Rhinolast twice a day, in the morning and evening. The typical dose for adults is 1 spray per nostril in the morning and the same again in the evening. Follow the usage instructions in the patient information leaflet.
Avoid getting Rhinolast in your eyes. Rinse them with clean water if this happens.
