How does Dymista® work?

  • Fluticasone propionate is a type of medication called a corticosteroid – it acts on the later phase inflammatory reaction to reduce inflammation.
  • Azelastine is a type of medicine called an antihistamine – it acts on the immediate phase reaction to reduce itch, sneezing and running of the nose as well as to alleviate eye symptoms.
  • Having the two drugs in a nasal spray means they are delivered direct to the area where they need to start work, giving faster and more complete symptom relief.
  • Having two components mean Dymista® acts quickly due to the antihistamine, and has long lasting effects due to the steroid acting on the later inflammatory reaction.

Delivering the drugs to the nose means the systemic absorption of the steroid is low, meaning Dymista® is suitable for long term use.
