How does Avamys work?

Avamys (fluticasone furoate) nasal spray belongs to a class of medications known as corticosteroids. Using the active ingredient fluticasone furoate, it works to relieve inflammation in the nasal passages.

When administered in the nasal passages, fluticasone is absorbed in the nasal cells, preventing the release of chemicals from triggering an allergic response to irritants such as pollen. Not only does Avamys prevent an allergic reaction, it also works to reduce nasal inflammation and relieves associated symptoms.
