Rhinolast nasal spray is a prescription-only treatment for the symptoms of hayfever and other allergies, including pet allergies and dust-mite allergies.
Rhinolast nasal spray contains the active ingredient azelastine hydrochloride, a type of antihistamine. This works by preventing the action of histamine, substance in the body which reacts to allergens such as pollen by causing the symptoms of allergies, such as a runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes. Rhinolast nasal spray works locally on the histamine receptors in the membrane of the nose, relieving the symptoms of allergies in as little at 15 minutes.
The active ingredient in Rhinolast nasal spray is azelastine hydrochloride.
The inactive ingredients in Rhinolast nasal spray are hypromellose, disodium edetate, citric acid, disodium phosphate, sodium chloride and purified water.
Always use Rhinolast as instructed by a doctor or pharmacist. Before using, bow your nose to clear it as much as possible. Remove the protective cap and press the pump a few times until an even spray emerges. Spray once into each nostril keeping your head upright. Do not tilt head backwards. Wipe the nozzle clean and replace the protective cap. If you forget to use Rhinolast, use it as soon as you remember and carry on as usual.
Your doctor will prescribe the dose that is right for you. The recommended dose is one squirt of Rhinolast into each nostril twice daily, in the morning and the evening.
Like all medicines, Rhinolast can cause side effects in some patients, although these tend to be mild and not everybody get them. Between 1 and 10 in every 100 users may experience an unpleasant taste in the back of the mouth, particularly if you tilt your head back while using Rhinolast. In rare cases, this taste can cause some nausea. Rarely, patients experience a slight irritation of the inside of the nose (stinging or itching), some sneezing and epistaxis. Very rarely, a patient may experience a hypersensitivity reaction, such as a rash, pruritus or urticaria.
Do NOT take Rhinolast if you are allergic to azelastine hydrochloride, or any of the other ingredients of this medication.
Rhinolast is only absorbed into the bloodstream in very small amounts, and so does not have any interactions with other medications.
If you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding, speak to a doctor before using Rhinolast.
It is safe to drink alcohol with this treatment.
Rhinolast does not cause any side effects which affect your ability to drive. However, some antihistamines can cause drowsiness, so if you experience symptoms of drowsiness you should avoid driving or operating heavy machinery.
