Dual action combination

Dual action combination

It is important to remember that Dymista® contains two active ingredients, fluticasone propionate, an intranasal steroid and azelastine an intranasal antihistamine

Antihistamines work quickly to alleviate the immediate symptoms of allergic rhinitis (itching, sneezing, running). Steroids work on the later phase reaction

In addition to azelastine's antihistaminic effects, it has also been shown to have a number of other potentially important attributes, including effects on cytokines, adhesion molecules and inflammatory cells1

Fluticasone propionate is highly selective agonist at glucocorticoid receptor, thereby producing anti-inflammatory and vasoconstriction effects impacting the later phase allergic reaction. Fluticasone propionate in Dymista® exerts a topical effect without systemic side effects due to low bioavailability2

Improved outcomes when using combination products are well accepted and apply to all diseases. Having to take one single device improves compliance and adherence with the medication and patients should be reminded to take Dymista® as directed.
