AVAMYS NASAL SPRAY 27.5MCG (120 DOSES)

Generic name: fluticasone furoate
Brand name: Avamys
Drug class: Nasal preparations, corticosteroids



WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF THIS MEDICATION?

Avamys Nasal Spray is available in the strength of 27.5 mcg/120 dose only.


WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION USED FOR?

Avamys is a corticosteroid for the treatment of symptoms related to seasonal and perennial (year round) allergic and non-allergic rhinitis administered via nasal spray. Corticosteroids, often referred to as steroids, are medicines that have anti-inflammatory properties. A nasal corticosteroid spray works by stopping the cells that line the nasal passages from releasing chemicals that trigger allergic and inflammatory reactions, thus reducing swelling and mucus in the nasal passageway caused by an allergic reaction. This helps to relieve symptoms associated with seasonal or perennial (year-round) allergic rhinitis symptoms (stuffy/runny nose, itching, and sneezing), and relieve acute sinusitis symptoms (stuffy nose).

Avamys may start to work 8 to 24 hours after the first dose, but it may take several days to reach its full effect.

For adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older, the recommended dose is 2 sprays in each nostril once daily, preferably at the same time each day. For the best results, this medication should be used regularly each day.

For children 2 to less than 12 years of age, the recommended starting dose is 1 spray in each nostril once daily. The doctor may suggest increasing the dose to 2 sprays in each nostril once daily until symptoms are controlled. Once the symptoms are under control, the doctor may suggest reducing the dose to 1 spray in each nostril once daily.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

If you are using this medication for the first time, if you have not used it for more than 30 days, or if the cap has been left off for more than 5 days, you will need to "prime" the pump by spraying the pump in the air (away from you) 6 times or until a fine mist is sprayed from the bottle. Before each use, gently blow your nose to clear your nostrils.

With the cap on, shake the medication well. Then remove the cap and follow these 3 steps to use the medication:

  • Tilt your head forward slightly and place the nozzle in one of your nostrils. Point the end of the nozzle towards the side of your nose.

  • Press the button firmly one time to spray the medication while you are breathing in through your nose. Remove the nozzle from your nose and breathe out through your mouth.

  • Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other nostril.

If you are using 2 sprays in each nostril, repeat steps 1 to 3 again.

Avoid getting the spray in your eyes. If you do, thoroughly rinse your eyes with water. Always put the cap back on after use.

The contents of the bottle can be viewed through an indicator window. The nasal device should be discarded after the labelled number of sprays has been used. Beyond this, the correct amount of medication in each spray cannot be assured, even though the bottle is not completely empty.

It is important to use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose of this medication by several hours, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not double a dose to make up for a missed dose. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature in an upright position with the cap on, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not refrigerate or freeze it. Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
