Dymista is an effective nasal spray used to relieve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever). It contains 2 potent active ingredients, Azelastine and Fluticasone and together they work in 3 ways, as an anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory and as a mast cell stabilizer. The last one being very important in stopping symptoms long term while using the treatment.
Dymista works by blocking histamine from causing inflammation and itching but it also stabilises the area longer term than most other treatments and the steroid helps to bring down any further swelling that can lead to irritation. A single dose can get to work within 30 minutes and can last 12 hours. As it contains the steroid fluticasone there is also an added benefit that slowly over time there is a build up effect which means it becomes more effective over time.
