What does Avamys nasal spray do?

Avamys nasal spray can effectively treat and prevent allergic rhinitis and chronic sinusitis. This includes symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and congestion. It is effective against both seasonal and year-round allergies. Its active ingredient is a corticosteroid called fluticasone furoate, which has anti-inflammatory properties.

Allergic rhinitis affects around 20% of people in the UK. The condition is caused by a hypersensitive immune system – when certain allergens enter the nose, the immune system overreacts and attacks them, as though they were an infection. To protect against the allergen, the body starts producing more mucus, which leads to symptoms such as congestion and sneezing.


Can allergies be cured?

It is not fully understood why certain people develop allergies, though sometimes they can run in families. Allergic rhinitis most commonly occurs due to pollen, animal fur, and dust mites. Most people with allergic rhinitis do not develop serious complications, though the symptoms can be frustrating and inconvenient in day-to-day life. In some rare cases, allergic rhinitis will cause sinusitis or middle-ear infections.

Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis cannot be cured, but the symptoms can be effectively relieved with treatments, such as Avamys. The corticosteroid works by stopping the immune system’s inflammatory response to allergens. This prevents unwanted allergy symptoms from developing.


How to use Avamys nasal spray 

It helps to gently blow your nose before you use the spray. Shake the nasal spray before use, then tilt your head slightly forward and place the spray nozzle inside your nostril. Direct the nozzle away from the centre of your nose and squeeze, while simultaneously breathing in through your nose. Do this for both nostrils. It can help to place a finger over the other nostril as you squeeze.


Nasal spray alternatives 

There are some non-medicinal methods to help combat hay fever symptoms. Some of these may include:

  • Wear wrap-around sunglasses
  • Keep windows closed when it is a day with high pollen count.
  • Try to have a shower after a day almost straight away. This will remove any trapped pollen grains from your hair and or skin. 

There is an extremely large range of OTC (over the counter) products you can purchase in any pharmacy, these vary from tablets to nasal sprays and also eye drops. You should try these before moving onto a prescription-only medicine. Avamys is not available over the counter without a prescription. It needs to be prescribed by your GP or purchased from a regulated UK online pharmacy.

The safety of fluticasone furoate during pregnancy has not yet been established, therefore we don’t advocate using Avamys nasal spray while pregnant unless your GP deems it absolutely necessary.

  • How do I buy Avamys online?

    It’s simple!

    Just select ‘Start Consultation’ next to the product above, or on the links below.

    You will need to fill in a simple health questionnaire so that our GPs and Pharmacists can ensure it is safe for us to supply your Avamys to you. It only takes a few minutes, and your treatment can be delivered to your door as soon as the next working day.

  • How many packs of Avamys can I buy in one purchase?

    Avamys is a prescription-only rhinitis treatment. For that reason, to ensure the safety of our patients and the legal operating of our pharmacy, we only supply a maximum of 2 packs of treatment at one time.

    This allows us to balance offering our patients an adequate supply of treatment with regular checks on their condition, symptoms, and the effectiveness of their treatment. This model ensures the perfect mix of convenience with optimal health and safety.

    If you have no adverse effects and your hay fever is well controlled, you can log in and easily re-order another supply.

  • What does Avamys contain?

    Each use (or actuation) of Avamys delivers 27.5 micrograms of a corticosteroid called fluticasone furoate. It also contains several inactive ingredients. For more details, please see the ‘Ingredients’ tab above.

  • How does Avamys work?

    The active ingredient in Avamys, fluticasone furoate, works by controlling the inflammation of the nasal passages that occurs in response to allergens in the air. This reduces swelling and mucus production, providing relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It also treats nasal polyps, small growths which may appear in the nasal passages alongside hay fever symptoms.

    Avamys will begin to relieve symptoms 8 hours after use, though it will not reach its full effect for several days.

  • Is it safe to use a nasal spray at the same time as oral antihistamines?

    Yes – it is very common to use both treatments simultaneously. However, do not use multiple steroid nasal sprays at the same time.

  • Is Avamys available for next-day delivery?

    Yes – we understand that sometimes you will want your treatment as soon as possible. If ordered before 4pm Monday to Friday, Avamys is available for next-day delivery.

  • Is it safe to buy Avamys online?

    Yes – as long as you are buying from a website that is a legally operating and regulated pharmacy, it is perfectly safe to buy Avamys online.

    The Independent Pharmacy is an NHS Online Pharmacy based in Bristol and has all the necessary regulation to be able to safely provide convenient access to genuine prescription treatments through our Online Pharmacy and Online Doctor.

    All of our hay fever treatments are supplied by the same UK-based wholesalers used by the large high-street chains such as Lloyds and Boots.

  • What are the advantages of buying Avamys online?

    There are many advantages to buying allergic rhinitis treatment online, some include:

    • It's quick and easy- there is no need to spend time at the doctor or pharmacy.
    • Fast delivery- We offer same day dispatch before 4pm and fast delivery to your address of choice with Royal Mail.
    • Great prices- we are able to offer very competitive prices and we guarantee to beat any other Online Doctor service.
    • A wealth of information - we provide all the information you could need on Avamys and other allergy treatments, in easy to digest formats, at a time that suits you.
  • I normally get Avamys from my doctor - why should I buy it online?

    Avamys is available on the NHS from your GP if you have been diagnosed with breathing problems due to allergies. This is normally where we suggest people start their treatment, to ensure that their condition is properly diagnosed and any possible serious symptoms are addressed.

    Many people can find it difficult to fit in time to see their GP or hard to get an appointment at all! It can, therefore, be more convenient to order your treatment online and have it delivered to your home or work address with minimum fuss. We also provide complete support to allow you to get any questions answered by our professional team by phone, email or live chat.

  • How often can I use Avamys nasal spray?

    Avamys contains around a 27.5 mg dose of fluticasone per spray. The general guidelines for dosage are two sprays, once daily, in each nostril. If in doubt, consult with your doctor.

  • Is Avamys nasal spray a steroid?

    Yes – Avamys is an anti-inflammatory steroid medicine, used to treat the symptoms of allergic rhinitis and hay fever. As it is applied directly to the area that it is treating (the nasal passages), it is a small dose that is unlikely to cause side effects or reach other areas of the body.

  • Can you use a steroid nasal spray long term?

    We usually recommend just one or two sprays in each nostril daily. Patients with chronic allergic rhinitis may use intranasal steroid sprays for years, but should check in regularly with a doctor to ensure there are no adverse effects.

  • What does fluticasone do?

    Fluticasone is used to treat nasal allergy symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and runny nose. It belongs to a class of medications called corticosteroids, and works by blocking the release of natural substances that cause allergy symptoms.

  • Does Avamys cause high blood pressure?

    High blood pressure is a possible side effect of using Avamys, though not a very common one. If you experience symptoms of high blood pressure, such as headaches, nausea, or vision problems, see your doctor.

  • Can Avamys be used for post-nasal drip?

    Post-nasal drip is an accumulation of mucus in the back of the nose and throat, and it’s one of the most common attributes of allergic rhinitis. Steroid nasal sprays are often a first-line treatment, being both anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic.

  • What’s the difference between Avamys and Flixonase?

    Avamys and Flixonase both contain the same active ingredient: fluticasone. The two are very similar, although there are reports that Avamys generally works faster than Flixonase. Avamys contains fluticasone furoate, whereas Flixonase contains fluticasone propionate. Fluticasone furoate (Avamys) has a longer lasting effect than fluticasone proprionate (Flixonase) and therefore can be used once daily.
