Combination Nasal Spray Relieves Allergic Rhinitis Symptoms

Combination Nasal Spray Relieves Allergic Rhinitis Symptoms

For many patients with allergic rhinitis, nasal symptom control is inadequate, with almost half reporting somewhat or poor symptom control with pharmacologic treatment. Patients desire treatments that provide fast, long-lasting effectiveness that addresses the pathophysiologic mechanisms of both acute- and late-phase allergic reactions. A fixed-dose nasal spray combination of olopatadine hydrochloride (antihistamine) and mometasone furoate (corticosteroid) has been shown to be efficacious and welltolerated for treating seasonal allergic rhinitis-associated nasal and ocular symptoms.
