What is Avamys
Avamys is a nasal spray, the active ingredient is fluticasone furoate. Avamys reduces inflammatory reactions of the nasal mucous membrane.
Avamys is prescribed by doctors for allergic rhinitis: a condition in which the patient is suffering from a runny and / or stuffy nose, sneezing, itching of the nose and / or eyes, watery and / or red eyes.
Allergic rhinitis may be caused by hay fever or allergies to pets, dust mites or certain fungi.
Commonly, the symptoms are seasonal, but some people suffer chronically. Avamys fights the allergic reaction of the nasal mucosa thereby reducing the symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
How to take Avamys
Avamys nasal spray should be administered daily at a fixed time. Shake the nasal spray before use. Aim the nozzle of the sprayer, during the administration of the nasal spray, as much as possible to the outside of the nostril (so not toward the nasal septum) and inhale the liquid well.
Possible Side Effects
Like all medicines, Avamys can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
Possible side effects include:
- nosebleeds (long term use)
- irritation of nose and / or throat
