What is Avamys nasal spray and what is it used for?

Avamys nasal spray is a prescription-only treatment for hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis) and allergies, such as house dust and animal fur.

Avamys is used to treat symptoms such as:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny or itchy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy, watery, or red eyes


How does Avamys nasal spray work?

Avamys contains a steroid, which works to reduce inflammation and swelling. This helps to alleviate symptoms associated with hay fever and allergies.


How long does it take for Avamys nasal spray to work?

Avamys spray typically begins to work eight hours after the first dose. 

However, it could take a few days, or even a few weeks, for the full effects to be seen. Keep using this nasal spray regularly to see an improvement in your symptoms.

A study published by the European Medicines Agency found that Avamys effectively reduced symptoms within a two week period.

Avamys dosage instructions

The usual dose for Avamys nasal spray for hay fever and allergic rhinitis is, "two sprays into each nostril daily, reduced to one spray into each nostril daily, once control has been achieved". The aim is to control symptoms to a point where you are using the lowest effective dose.

Each spray delivers a 27.5mcg dose.

Do not exceed the recommended dose. Avamys is a steroid nasal spray, so overuse may cause adverse side effects and potentially damage the nostrils. Using more than the prescribed dose will not yield better results and can be harmful to your health.  

How to use Avamys nasal spray

For Avamys nasal spray to be effective, it is important that you use it regularly and follow the instructions provided.

When using a new bottle, you may have to push down the spray a few times until you see a fine mist released. This may also be necessary if you haven’t used a bottle for a few days. 

You can find instructions on how to use Avamys nasal spray in the patient information leaflet. Here is what you need to do:

  • Shake the bottle and remove the cap
  • Blow your nose to clear your nostrils
  • Use your finger to close one nostril and then tilt your head forward as you put the nozzle into the open nostril
  • Breathe slowly through the nose and press down on the nozzle, spraying once into the nostril
  • Breathe out via your mouth
  • Repeat the process in the other nostril 
  • Wipe the nozzle down with a tissue when you are finished, before replacing the cap


Do not exceed the recommended number of sprays in 24 hours.

If you wish to use Avamys whilst pregnant, always check with your doctor or pharmacist beforehand.

Avamys while breastfeeding

Avamys is usually safe to take whilst breastfeeding. Because the amount of drug absorbed into the bloodstream is minimal, it is unlikely to affect the feeding infant. However, always check with your doctor or pharmacist if you wish to use Avamys whilst breastfeeding.

Avamys nasal spray alternatives

Fluticasone nasal spray

Fluticasone nasal spray is the generic version of Avamys. It contains the same active ingredient as Avamys. Both treatments are as effective as each other.


Like Avamys, Nasonex is a nasal spray that can be used to treat symptoms of hay fever allergies, reducing inflammation. 

Nasonex is also a steroid treatment and contains a similar type of active ingredient — mometasone furoate. Mometasone furoate is a corticosteroid that works in the same way as fluticasone furoate, the active ingredient in Avamys, to combat allergy symptoms and inflammation. Avamys is not commonly used to treat nasal polyps, however, Nasonex is. 

Nasonex spray is a prescription-only treatment.


Flixonase can be used to treat the same allergies that Avamys does. 

It is another medicine in the corticosteroid group, but contains fluticasone propionate as its active ingredient, rather than fluticasone furoate. 

Flixonase nasal spray works in the same way as Avamys, reducing inflammation to combat congestion in the nose, relieving symptoms such as nasal congestion, as well as watery, red or itchy eyes.


Beconase nasal spray is another prescription-only treatment used to prevent and relieve symptoms of allergic rhinitis. 

Like Avamys, Beconase is a corticosteroid medicine that works by reducing inflammation and easing congestion. It contains the active ingredient beclometasone dipropionate.

Steroid nasal sprays can safely be used long term, with a small chance of systemic absorption.

No, you cannot buy Avamys nasal spray over the counter. 

Avamys requires a prescription in the UK. This is because it is a corticosteroid medicine, and steroids are a potent drug. A doctor will need to confirm that Avamys is safe and suitable for you before your prescription can be issued. 

For a quick and convenient way to purchase Avamys spray, you can order the medication through our online pharmacy. Once you have completed the questionnaire and it has been reviewed by one of our medical professionals, we will send it in a discreet package straight to your door.

No, anxiety is not a known side effect.

No, you should not use Avamys if you have an infection.

Avamys is generally considered to be a safe medication to use long term. However, as it contains a steroid, children using Avamys long-term should be monitored, as it can affect their growth. Using Avamys long-term can also make glaucoma and cataracts worse. You should let your doctor know if you experience any visual disturbances whilst taking Avamys.

Product Reviews For Avamys Nasal Spray


Avamys nasal spray reviews are typically very positive.

Users of Avamys spray with both seasonal and long-term allergies have commented that the medicine is effective in treating hay fever and similar allergies — and that Avamys is able to relieve both nose and ear congestion. Improvements have been felt by some people in a matter of days.

However, some reviewers said they experienced some side effects whilst using Avamys. Among the side effects cited by users were anxiety, loss of sense of smell, an unpleasant taste at the back of the throat and headaches. 

Nevertheless, many users agreed that the pros certainly outweigh the cons as the treatment was able to efficiently combat allergy symptoms. Reviewers that suffered from polyp growth, a side effect of allergic rhinitis, went on to say Avamys was able to prevent nasal polyps growing, relieving them of congestion and sinus problems.
