Buy Rhinolast online

Rhinolast is a prescription-only, non-drowsy antihistamine available to buy online from Prescription Doctor, following a quick consultation with one of our doctors. This medication is available as a nasal suspension which contains 0.1% w/v of azelastine hydrochloride. Each spray delivers 140 micrograms of azelastine hydrochloride.

Rhinolast is a treatment for seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis, sometimes called hay fever.

Our online service makes it safe and easy for you to buy Rhinolast online and have it delivered straight to your door the next day. To begin your order, you will need to complete a consultation with one of our doctors.

What is Hay Fever?

Hay fever occurs when the immune system mistakes a harmless substance for something dangerous, in this case, an airborne allergen called pollen. It is the immune system response, specifically, the release of a chemical called histamine, which leads to the cold-like symptoms most commonly associated with hay fever, such as itchy eyes and a runny nose.

Hay fever can occur seasonally, such as in spring and summer, or can be a chronic condition which produces symptoms all year round (perennial). Seasonal hay fever is linked to specific triggers like:

  • Tree pollen
  • Grass pollen
  • Ragweed pollen
  • Outdoor fungi or mould

Perennial allergies are typically caused by indoor triggers such as dust mites or pet dander.

Hay fever can disrupt daily life and interfere with sleep, so it is important to talk to your doctor about your symptoms and treatment options. It can also exasperate other conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Left untreated, allergic rhinitis can also lead to complication like sinusitis, an infection and inflammation in the sinus cavities, or ear infections.

How does Rhinolast work?

Rhinolast contains an antihistamine called azelastine hydrochloride. This active ingredient blocks histamine from binding to histamine receptors, reducing or preventing symptoms.

The histamine receptors are located in the nasal membranes which line the inside of the nose. When administered nasally, Rhinolast acts quickly to block the receptors in the nose to prevent the binding of histamine. The medication typically begins working within about 15 minutes after administration.

How do I take Rhinolast?

Always follow your doctor's instructions when using rhinolast nasal spray. A typical dose is one spray in each nostril twice daily - usually once in the morning and once in the evening.

  1. Before using the spray, blow your nose.
  2. Grab the protective cap and pull it upward to remove it.
  3. If it is your first time using the Rhinolast press the nozzle down several times until you see an even spray.
  4. Slide the top of the spray bottle into one nostril with your index and middle finger on each side of the nozzle and your thumb supporting the bottle from the bottom.
  5. Keeping your head straight, press your fingers down to release the spray. Do not tilt your head when delivering the dose.
  6. Use a tissue to wipe the nozzle and replace the protective cap.

Repeat steps 4 and 5 for both nostrils.

If it has been over a week since you used your nasal spray, you may need to prime it again. Repeat step 3 to prime your Rhinolast nasal spray.

Use the spray when you remember than continue with the next normal dose. Avoid spraying more medication to make up a missed dose.

What should I do if I take too much Rhinolast?

If you find you use too much Rhinolast nasal spray, it is unlikely to cause any serious harm. If you have any concerns or side effects, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Rhinolast?

Alcohol can increase your chances of experiencing rare side effects like fatigue or drowsiness. Alcohol may also make the symptoms for the hay fever worse. It is best to avoid drinking or at least limit alcohol intake while taking Rhinolast.

Will Rhinolast impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?
