Contains the active ingredient : Azelastine HCl 137 mcg, Fluticasone Propionate 50 mcg
Azelastine works by preventing the actions of histamine - a substance produced by the body when it reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen or pet fur (these are known as allergens). Histamine causes a chain reaction that results in allergic symptoms such as itchy eyes, sneezing and a runny nose. Azelastine blocks histamine receptors and so stops this chain reaction.
Fluticasone is absorbed into the cells of the nasal lining and works by stopping these cells from releasing chemicals that trigger allergic and inflammatory reactions. It relieves symptoms such as a blocked or runny nose, sneezing and sinus discomfort. It can also help relieve associated eye symptoms like red, itchy and watery eyes.
The azelastine starts relieving nasal symptoms within 15 minutes of using the nasal spray. However, it can take a few days for the fluticasone to build up to its full effect.
What is it used for?
Preventing and treating symptoms of moderate to severe hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis).
Preventing and treating symptoms of moderate to severe nasal allergies that occur throughout the year (perennial allergic rhinitis), for example due to pet allergies or dust mite allergies.
