What is Flomist® Nasal Spray Fluticasone Propionate 0.005%
The nasal cavity’s inner lining can get inflamed for several reasons. The inflammation of the inner nasal lining is referred to as allergic rhinitis. Allergens such as pollens, dust, and animal mold can trigger allergic responses inside the nasal lining. As a response to the allergic reaction, the nasal lining becomes inflamed, resulting in several discomfort symptoms. Sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and tightness in the sinuses are several symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis.
Allergic responses are protective mechanisms initiated by our immune system to fight against allergens. But the presenting symptoms may Couse the day difficult for the patient. So the use of a steroid nasal spray will help get rid of the symptoms. The exact mechanism of action is still unclear, but corticosteroids can relieve the symptoms of inflammation via several mechanisms. They can initiate the action on a wide range of cells such as mast cells, eosinophils, and macrophages. Fluticasone propionate can suppress the release of chemicals that activate inflammation.
Flomist Nasal Spray does not provide immediate relief after the use, so it takes several hours to have relief after the initial usage. But when the Medication is administered frequently, the user can have the best results. This product is not indicated to use in acute flayers as it will not give the results within a short period.
