What is Astelin Nasal Spray (Azelastine) prescribed for?

This medication is used to relieve nasal symptoms such as a runny or stuffy nose, itchy nose, sneezing, and post–nasal drop caused by various allergies and other conditions.  Astelin works by blocking certain natural substances called histamines, which are responsible for the nasal symptoms.

Follow the instructions, and test the spray in the air if you are using the pump for the first time, if you have not used it for 3 days or more. A fine mist is a good sign that the spray pump is working efficiently.

Gently blow your nose before using the medication, then use this medication in the nose as directed by your doctor. This is usually taken once or twice a day in both nostrils. Do not spray in eyes or mouth.

Remember that the dosage is based on your medical condition and your response to the treatment.  Keep track of the number of sprays you have used from the spray pump.

This medication usually begins to work within 3 hours of use.
