What is Avamys nasal spray?
Avamys nasal spray is an effective allergie and hay fever medication. It contains active ingredient fluticasone furoate, a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation in nasal passages caused by allergic reactions, often triggered by pollen, animals, and house dust.
By decreasing nasal inflammation, this steroid-based spray effectively eases allergic rhinitis symptoms like nasal congestion, runny or itchy nose, sneezing, and red, itchy, watery eyes.
Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, each Avamys nasal spray bottle holds around 120 sprays, based on the typical starting dose. It's suitable for both adults and children aged 6 years and over, providing relief for allergic rhinitis symptoms.
What is Avamys nasal spray used for?
Avamys nasal spray is a versatile solution for various allergy symptoms. It effectively reduces discomfort from seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever), addressing issues like nasal congestion, sneezing, a runny nose, and watery, itchy, and red eyes. It's as simple as giving a gentle spray into each nostril, whenever needed.
Applying it once or twice daily, the fine mist works swiftly to soothe inflammation, clearing airways and bringing relief. Beyond hay fever, this steroid nasal spray also proves effective against other irritants like pet hair or house dust, lessening allergy symptoms caused by these triggers.
How Avamys nasal spray helps with allergic rhinitis
Avamys spray fights allergic reactions in your nose, like hay fever. It uses a strong corticosteroid called fluticasone furoate to reduce swelling and mucus. This helps with symptoms such as itchiness, sneezing, and runny noses. Avamys is effective against all nasal allergies, all year round.
Fluticasone furoate in Avamys is like natural corticosteroids. It attaches to specific cells, calming the immune response to allergens. This reduces substances like histamines that cause inflammation.
Symptoms like sneezing and itchy eyes are lowered. Avamys contains 27.5mcg of fluticasone furoate, a corticosteroid. It's absorbed by nasal cells to block allergic triggers. This eases swelling and symptoms related to allergies, including runny noses and itchiness.
How effevtive Avamys nasal spray
Studies involving patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (hayfever) have shown that Avamys significantly reduces their symptoms.
Most patients experienced a notable 40-60% improvement in their symptom scores. In comparison, patients who received a placebo showed a 25-40% improvement.
Relief from symptoms can start within 8 hours or more after beginning Avamys. However, using it daily while exposed to your allergens offers the maximum benefit.
Dealing with allergies can be a real hassle, especially when your nose gets all stuffy and itchy. Seasonal allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, goes a step further by making it hard to breathe, messing up your sense of taste, and giving you those bothersome watery, itchy eyes. But you don't have to put up with it – Avamys nasal spray is a great way to tackle those nasal allergy symptoms.
Additional Tips to ease hay fever symptoms:
- Shower regularly to remove pollen from hair and skin.
- Apply Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen.
- Wear wraparound sunglasses to shield your eyes from irritants.
- Keep windows shut during high pollen count days.
- Change clothes after being outdoors.

How to use Avamys nasal spray: step-by-step guide:
Is Avamys Suitable for You?
In certain situations, using Avamys nasal spray requires caution. Not recommended to use Avamys if you:
- Have liver issues
- Have glaucoma or cataracts

Inform our online doctor through the assessment form if you're taking other medications, whether prescribed by your GP or bought from a pharmacy.

1. Shake the spray for a few minutes.
2. Squeeze both sides to uncap it.
3. Hold upright, nozzle away from you.
4. Firmly press the button 4-6 times for a mist.
1. Shake and remove cap.
2. Breathe out from your nose to clear it.

Avamys Doses Guidelines
For hay fever and allergic rhinitis, the typical Avamys nasal spray dose is "two sprays into each nostril daily, reduced to one spray into each nostril daily once control is achieved." The goal is to manage symptoms with the lowest effective dose. Usually, you'll spray in the morning and/or evening when symptoms are worse.
Each spray contains 27.5mcg. So, if you use two sprays in each nostril twice a day, it's 110mcg per nostril per day.
Avoid exceeding the recommended dose. Avamys is a steroid nasal spray, and excessive use could lead to side effects or nostril irritation. Occasional accidental overuse might not be harmful, but continuous excessive use won't improve your condition.
If you're unsure, talk to your pharmacist or doctor about your Avamys dosage.
Timing: Use once daily, preferably at the same time each day, to maintain symptom relief throughout the day and night.
For aged 12 and above:
Start with 2 sprays in each nostril once daily.
Once symptoms are controlled, reduce to 1 spray in each nostril daily.
For children aged 6 to 11:
Use 1 spray in each nostril once daily.
If symptoms are severe, the doctor might temporarily increase the dose to 2 sprays per nostril daily, then reduce it.
If you find it hard to breathe through the nostril you're treating, use your finger to close the other nostril while applying the spray. Using Avamys correctly helps ensure effective relief from hay fever.
