Click to watch video

A common side effect of Dymista® is dysgeusial1, which can often be alleviated by correct inhalation technique and not sniffing the medication to the back of the throat immediately after spraying.

Correct administration technique

  • Shake the bottle gently for 5 seconds by tilting it upwards and downwards and then remove the protective cap.

The first time the nasal spray is used, you must prime the pump

  • Put one linger either side of the spray pump and place your thumb cm the bottom of the bottle
  • Press dawn and release the pump 6 times until a fine mist appears.
  • Now your pump is primed and ready to use.
  • If the nasal spray has not been used for more than 7 days, you will need to re-prime the pump once by pressing down and releasing the pump.

Using the spray

  • After blowing your nose, spray once into each nostril keeping the head fitted downward.
  • The spray tip should be directed to the outside wall of the nose, using the right hand for the left nostril and the left hand for the right nostril
  • Do not sniff, breathe in gently.
  • After use, wipe the spray lip and replace the protective cap.
