Product Description:

Dymista contains 2 active substances: azelastine hydrochloride and fluticasone propionate:

  • Azelastine hydrochloride belongs to a group of medicines called antihistamines.
  • Antihistamines work by preventing the effects of substances such as e.g. Histamine that the body produces as part of an allergic reaction - and thus reduces the symptoms of allergic rhinitis .
  • Fluticasone propionate belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids that reduce inflammation.
  • Dymista is used for symptom relief in moderate to severe seasonal and year-round allergic rhinitis if the use of either intranasal antihistamine or corticosteroid alone is not considered sufficient.
  • Seasonal and year-round allergic rhinitis are allergic reactions to substances such as pollen (hay fever), house mites, mould, dust or pets.
  • Dymista relieves allergy symptoms such as: runny nose, postnasal drip (mucus in the throat), sneezing and itchy nose or stuffy nose.

How To Use:

  • Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. 
  • Contact a doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure.
  • It is important to use Dymista regularly to achieve the full therapeutic effect. Contact with the eyes should be avoided.

  • The recommended dose is 1 spray in each nostril morning and evening.

For use in the nose:
Read the following instructions carefully and use the spray only as directed.

  • INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE Preparation of the spray
  • Shake the bottle carefully for approx. 5 seconds by turning it upside down, then remove the protective cap.
  • The first time the spray is to be used, you must prepare the pump by spraying into the air.
  • Prepare the pump by placing one finger on each side of the spray pump and place your thumb under the bottom of the bottle.

Use of the spray

  • Shake the bottle carefully for approx. 5 seconds by turning it upside down, then remove the protective cap.
  • Blow your nose to clear your nostrils.
  • Bend your head forward towards your toes. Do not bend your head back.
  • Hold the bottle straight up and down and carefully insert the spray tip into a nostril.

  • Exhale through the mouth.
  • Repeat in the other nostril.
  • Breathe in carefully and do not bend your head back after you have sprayed.
  • This will prevent the medicine from running down the throat and giving an unpleasant taste in the mouth.
  • Wipe the tip of the spray with a clean napkin or cloth after use, and replace the protective cap.
  • Do not poke the spray tip if no spray comes out. Clean the tip with water.
  • It is important that you take the dose as the doctor has told you. You should only dose as your doctor has recommended.

Warnings And Precautions

  • Do not use Dymista:

If you are allergic to azelastine hydrochloride or fluticasone propionate or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Dymista if:

  • you have recently had a nose operation
  • you have an infection in your nose. Infections in the nasal airways should be treated with antibacterial drugs or antifungal agents.
  • If you are given medicine for an infection in your nose, you can still use Dymista to treat your allergy .
  • you have tuberculosis or an untreated infection .
  • you have vision changes or previously increased pressure in the eye, glaucoma and/or cataracts.
  • If this applies to you, you will be closely monitored while using Dymista.
  • you suffer from reduced adrenal function. Caution should be exercised when switching from systemic steroid therapy to Dymista.
  • you suffer from a serious liver disease.
  • You will then have an increased risk of systemic side effects.
  • In the aforementioned cases, your doctor will decide whether you can use Dymista.
  • It is important that you take your dose as described in point 3 below or as your doctor has told you.
  • Treatment with doses higher than recommended doses of nasal corticosteroids can lead to adrenal suppression, a condition that can cause weight loss, fatigue, muscle weakness, low blood sugar , salt cravings, joint pain, depression and darkening of the skin.
  • If this occurs, your doctor may recommend other medicines during periods of stress or planned surgical operations.
  • To avoid adrenal suppression, your doctor will advise that you take the lowest effective dose to get good control of your rhinitis symptoms.
  • Taking nasal corticosteroids (such as Dymista) over a long period of time can cause growth retardation in children and adolescents.
  • The doctor will check your child's height regularly and make sure he or she is taking the lowest effective dose.
  • Contact your doctor if you experience blurred vision or other visual disturbances.
  • If you are not sure if any of the above apply to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Dymista.
