What is Avamys?

Avamys contains the active ingredient Fluticasone furoate and belongs to the group of drugs known as corticosteroids.

Avamys works primarily by reducing the inflammation inside the nasal passages and also preventing the release of chemicals in the body from triggering an allergic response to irritants such as pollen and dust mites.

The advantages of using Avamys include:

  • Relief of runny or itchy nose
  • Relief from a blocked nose
  • Starts working from 8 hours of administration, and can last for up to 24-hours

How to use Avamys

If you are using a new Avamys device, there are some preparatory steps to follow before spraying.

Step 1: Shake the nasal spray vigorously for about 10-seconds

Step 2: Remove the cap by squeezing both sides of the cap and lifting

Step 4: Blow your nose to clear the nostrils

Step 5: press the spray button, whilst breathing in through the nose. Hold for a few seconds, and then breathe out through the mouth

Step 6: if the dose is 2-sprays into each nostril, then repeat steps 4 and 5.

Step 7: Repeat steps 4-6 for the other nostril

(Keep the spray away from eyes, and if you get any in the eye, rinse immediately with clean water)

If you are using Avamys to treat symptoms of hayfever, it is recommended you start using it a few weeks before the pollen season starts to get the best results.
