Avamys nasal spray is a corticosteroid medicine for the treatment of hay fever or allergic rhinitis. Avamys nasal spray has fluticasone furoate as its active ingredient. The medicine provides relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis such as blocked nosed, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, and sneezing.
Fluticasone furoate, the active ingredient in Avamys nasal spray, is a corticosteroid. The medication may start providing relief to the symptoms of allergic rhinitis from 8 to 24 hours after the first dose. It may take several days before the full effect of the medication could be felt.
Avamys nasal spray works by decreasing inflammation caused by allergic rhinitis. When administered in the nasal passage, fluticasone is absorbed in the nasal cells, preventing the release of chemicals that will trigger an allergic response to the irritants such as pollen. Avamys nasal spray prevents an allergic reaction. It also works to reduce nasal inflammation and relieves the symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis.
