Avamys nasal spray can effectively treat and prevent allergic rhinitis. 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. 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 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.

The recommended dose is two sprays per nostril, once per day. Depending on the severity of your allergies, this dose may be increased or decreased. It should not exceed two sprays into each nostril twice per day. Always use whichever minimum dose will ease your symptoms.

Never double your dose to compensate for a treatment that you have missed.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they use Avamys. However, if you do, they can include:

Nosebleeds, nose ulcers, headache, irritation of the nose

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

    The price includes the medication you have selected, the private consultation with our Doctor and, if the purchase is over £40, it also includes free standard delivery. Under £40, standard delivery is £2.95 and all items are sent using a Royal Mail Tracked Service.

  • 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.
