More information about Avamys Nasal Spray

What is Avamys Nasal Spray?

Avamys is an effective medicine that is designed to treat the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis, or hay fever.

It comes in the form of a fast-acting nasal spray and can be used to relieve:

  • nasal congestion
  • a runny or itchy nose
  • sneezing
  • itchy or watery eyes

Avamys nasal spray can also be used to treat other allergies, such as those caused by pet dander or dust mites. Using this treatment on a long-term basis can help to control nasal inflammation and congestion.

As well as Avamys, fluticasone furoate nasal sprays can be bought under the brand names Flixonase and Nasofan.

How does it work?

Avamys is a steroid nasal spray. It belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids (or steroids for short).

This nasal spray works to relieve inflammation in the nasal passages due to the active ingredient fluticasone furoate.

When administered in the nasal passages, fluticasone furoate is absorbed into the nasal cells. This directly counters allergy symptoms by reducing the activity of the immune system, which reduces nasal inflammation.

What are the benefits?

Avamys is beneficial to hay fever sufferers as it works quickly to relieve uncomfortable allergy symptoms. Having undergone clinical trials Trusted source National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Government Source Biomedical Research and Literature Go to source , this nasal spray has been shown to:

  • relieve a runny or itchy nose
  • relieve a blocked nose and other sinus difficulties
  • prevent sneezing
  • start working within 8-24 hours

Taking effective hay fever medication can improve your quality of life during the pollen season, making it easier to concentrate during the day and improve sleep at night.

How effective is Avamys Nasal Spray?

Avamys has been proven to effectively tackle hay fever symptoms. One study Trusted source National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Government Source Biomedical Research and Literature Go to source compared the efficacy of fluticasone furoate vs a placebo. The results found that:

Using intranasal fluticasone furoate (Avamys) once daily was effective in treating both ocular and nasal hay fever symptoms, causing significant improvements in quality of life.

  1. Shake the nasal spray vigorously and remove the cap.
  2. Blow your nose gently to ensure that your nasal passages are clear.
  3. Tilt your head forward and insert the nozzle into one nostril.
  4. Press the spray button while gently inhaling through your nose.
  5. Breathe out through your mouth.
  6. Repeat the above steps with the other nostril before replacing the cap on the bottle.

If you forget to take your nasal spray at your usual time, it is recommended that you miss this dose and wait till the following day to administer the medication.

When using Avamys, try to keep the mist solution away from your eyes. If your eyes do come into contact with the nasal spray mist, rinse them thoroughly and carefully with clean water.

Ensure you use the treatment as recommended by your doctor. Don't use more than the recommended dosage as this could increase your chance of side effects.

If you are using Avamys for hay fever, it is recommended that you start using it a couple of weeks before the pollen season begins.

Who can use it?

Avamys can be used by most adults who suffer from hay fever symptoms. However, before using this medication make sure that you have read the following precautions:

  • Avamys should not be used if you are allergic to any of the ingredients found in this medication
  • if you have a history of liver disease, glaucoma, cataracts, or have had an infection in the nasal passages, nasal surgery or tuberculosis, then you should not take this medication
  • extensive use of the treatment can affect the eyes with possible cases of glaucoma reported
  • Avamys should be used with caution if you intend to use it during pregnancy or while breastfeeding

Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns before taking this medication. You may be better suited to alternative (long or short-term) treatments for allergic rhinitis.

What are the potential side effects?

Like all prescription medications, this nasal spray may cause some side effects. While it’s normal to experience them, not everyone does.

The most common side effects associated with taking Avamys are:

  • nosebleeds
  • headaches
  • irritation in the nasal passage
  • fever
  • sore throat

If you do experience any of the above, it is likely that they will subside as your body becomes accustomed to the medication.

If you do experience any lasting adverse effects then you must speak to your doctor as soon as possible.

What are the precautions?

Avamys steroid nasal spray should not be used by:

  • children, as the corticosteroid may cause growth impairment
  • those with existing infections as the corticosteroids can make them worse
  • those with liver or kidney problems

The treatment may also interact with other anti-fungal medications such as ketoconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole or ritonavir.
