On this episode of the RLP podcast, I discuss azelastine nasal spray pharmacology, adverse effects, administration, and much more!
While most nasal sprays for allergic rhinitis are corticosteroids, azelastine is classified as an antihistamine.
Systemic absorption of azelastine is about 40%, so while not common, systemic adverse effects like sedation can happen.
On this podcast episode, I use azelastine to remind you about important education points regarding the use of nasal sprays.
