Dymista Nasal Spray
What is Dymista?
Dymista is a nasal spray, used to treat seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is a condition that causes inflammation inside the nose. It is caused by an allergen such as mould, pollen or flakes of skin from animals. Dymista nasal spray can help to relieve the inflammation caused by allergic rhinitis.
Dymista is a prescription only medication. You must have a valid prescription in order to buy Dymista. However, it is possible for us to prescribe it to you following a brief online consultation. Contact us to find out more.
Dymista nasal spray contains two active ingredients - azelastine hydrochloride and fluticasone propionate. For more information about Dymista, consult the patient information leaflet.
How it works
Allergic rhinitis is caused by the production of a chemical called histamine in the body. When the body is exposed to an allergen, it produces a chemical called histamine. Histamine can make the tissues around and inside the nose swell up, and this can cause symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
Dymista contains azelastine hydrochloride, which is an antihistamine. This means it will block histamine, preventing the nose from swelling up.
Dymista also contains fluticasone propionate, which is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids reduce inflammation, which will help to reduce nasal swelling caused by allergic rhinitis.
Dymista spray should begin working within around 30 - 60 minutes of using it.
Before you take it
It is important that you do not use Dymista if you are allergic to either of the active ingredients, azelastine hydrochloride or fluticasone propionate. Speak to your doctor who will be able to recommend an alternative medication for your condition.
If you have recently had an operation on your nose, you must speak with your doctor before using Dymista spray, as it may be unsuitable for you.
If you have an infection in your nose, this must be treated with antibacterial medication before you can use Dymista. You should speak with your doctor to ascertain whether you can begin to use Dymista before your infection has fully cleared.
If you have a history of glaucoma, changes in vision or increased ocular pressure, your doctor will closely monitor you while you use Dymista spray. If you suffer from severe liver disease, you may be at increased risk of side effects.
Overuse of Dymista can cause adrenal suppression. Adrenal suppression may cause weight loss, salt cravings, low blood sugar, muscle weakness and joint pain. It is important that you use only the dose that has been prescribed to you to avoid these symptoms.
Nasal corticosteroids, when taken for an extended period of time, may cause growth suppression in children and adolescents. Your doctor will measure your child’s height on a regular basis to determine whether they are at risk of this. Please note - we do not prescribe medications to anyone under the age of 18.
You should not use Dymista while pregnant or breastfeeding without the specific advice of your doctor. They will decide whether the benefits of taking Dymista outweigh the risks, and whether another medication may be more suitable for you to take.
Dymista has minimal impact on your ability to drive or operate machinery. However, you should refrain from these activities until you are fully aware of how this medication affects you.
Dymista may interact with other medications. Tell your doctor before you use Dymista if you are taking any of the following:
- Any corticosteroid medication such as prednisolone or hydrocortisone
- Protease inhibitors, such as ritonavir used to treat HIV
- Telaprevir for hepatitis C
- Antifungal medication such as ketoconazole and itraconazole
This is not an exhaustive list of warnings and interactions. For a complete list, consult the patient information leaflet, or speak with your doctor for advice.
You should always use Dymista as your doctor or pharmacist has prescribed. Never exceed the stated dose. If you are in any way unsure of how to use Dymista, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
For instructions on how to use the spray, consult the patient information leaflet.
It is very important that you use Dymista exactly as prescribed, to avoid the risk of developing adrenal suppression. For the full therapeutic benefit of Dymista, you must be sure to use it regularly.
Dymista should be used twice per day. You should spray Dymista once in each nostril, twice a day, in the morning and the evening.
Store Dymista in a cool, dry place, free from heat and moisture. Keep it out of the reach of children and pets.
Common Side Effects of Dymista
Dymista, like other medications, may cause unwanted side effects. These are usually mild to moderate in nature, but should go away once your body has become used to the medication. However, if they persist, you may want to visit your doctor to discuss them. Side effects may include:

Dymista may cause serious side effects. These are comparatively rare, but if you experience them, you should contact your doctor. Side effects may include:

- Swelling of the tongue, throat, mouth or lips

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. For a full list, consult the patient information leaflet, or go to your doctor for advice.
