Dymista Side Effects
It can be difficult to predict whether you will develop side effects while using Dymista. However, clinical studies have shown that some of the most common reactions include headaches, nosebleeds, and a distorted sense of taste. Although reactions such as these tend to be minor, seek immediate medical attention if you develop potentially serious problems, such as frequent infections, severe nosebleeds, or acne-like skin problems.
An Introduction to Dymista Side EffectsAs with any medicine, Dymista™ (azelastine/fluticasone nasal spray) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Dymista. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Common Side Effects of DymistaDymista has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people using the drug were documented and compared to those that were reported in other groups given a similar product that did not contain any active ingredients (a placebo), an azelastine nasal spray, or a fluticasone nasal spray (Dymista contains both azelastine and fluticasone). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the group not using the placebo.
In short-term studies, the most common Dymista side effects included:
- A distorted sense of taste -- in up to 4 percent of people
- Headache -- up to 2 percent
- Nosebleeds -- up to 2 percent.
