Dymista is a nasal spray that provides effective relief from allergic rhinitis. This includes hay fever symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion and a runny nose. Unlike most other allergy treatments, Dymista is a combination of two types of medicine. The two active ingredients are azelastine (an antihistamine) and fluticasone (a steroid). The antihistamine provides quick relief, taking effect within 30-60 minutes. Fluticasone will only take full effect after a few days of regular use, but will provide further relief from inflammation.

Allergic rhinitis affects 20% of people in the UK. It occurs due to a hypersensitive immune system – when certain allergies enter the nose, the immune system rejects them as if they were an infection such as flu. To protect against the allergen, the body produces extra mucus, which leads to symptoms like congestion and sneezing. It is not completely understood why certain people develop allergies, though they sometimes 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 Dymista. This spray has the advantage of being a combination treatment. It may be ideal for you if neither intranasal corticosteroid nor antihistamine alone is enough to ease your hay fever symptoms. If you are taking both, Dymista will likely be more cost effective and convenient for you. It also provides much quicker relief than exclusively corticosteroid nasal sprays.

If Dymista does not fully relieve your symptoms, it is safe to continue using oral antihistamines as well. However, do not use other corticosteroid sprays, as these have similar ingredients and you will exceed the recommended dose.

Each use (or actuation) of Dymista delivers 125 micrograms of azelastine hydrochloride and 50 micrograms of fluticasone propionate.

The recommended initial dose of Dymista is one spray per nostril, twice per day. It is most effective when used every day.

Children under the age of 12 should not use Dymista.

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

A headache, nosebleed, unpleasant smell or taste

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.

Reading the following warnings carefully will help to ensure you are selecting an appropriate product.

Before using Dymista, consult your GP if you:

  • Have recently undergone an operation on your nose
  • Have an untreated infection, especially in your nose
  • Have tuberculosis
  • Suffer from liver disease
  • Have a history of glaucoma and/or cataracts
  • Suffer from impaired adrenal function
  • Take HIV medicines (e.g. ritonavir)
  • Take antifungal medicines (e.g. ketoconazole)

Do not take other nasal corticosteroids alongside Dymista. Excessive use of these medicines can lead to adrenal suppression, which may cause harmful side effects including muscle weakness, low blood sugar, joint pain, depression, and others.

If you feel drowsy while using Dymista, avoid driving or using machinery.

One of the active ingredients in Dymista, benzalkonium chloride, may cause irritation of the nasal passages. If this persists, inform your doctor.

Please read all packaging and the Product Information Leaflet before taking any new medicine and inform your doctor of medicines you are taking or intend to take.

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

    Dymista is a prescription-only hay fever 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 effectiveness of treatment. This model ensures the perfect mix of convenience with optimal health and safety.

  • What does Dymista look like?

    Dymista Nasal Spray is a white fluid which comes in a small amber coloured glass bottle. The bottle has a protective cap, spray pump, and applicator.

  • What does Dymista contain?

    Each use (or actuation) of Dymista delivers 125 micrograms of an antihistamine called azelastine hydrochloride and 50 micrograms of a corticosteroid called fluticasone propionate. It also contains several inactive ingredients. For more details, please see the ‘Ingredients’ tab above.

    The 10ml bottle will contain at least 28 actuations; the 25ml bottle will contain at least 120 actuations.

  • How does Dymista work?

    The two treatments in Dymista work in slightly different ways. Azelastine inhibits the production of histamine, a substance the body releases in response to allergens. This provides fast relief from allergy symptoms. The corticosteroid fluticasone propionate works by controlling the inflammation of the nasal passages which occurs in response to allergens in the air. This reduces swelling and mucus production, providing lasting relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis.

  • Is Dymista available for next-day delivery?
