Astelin (Azelastine)

Astelin (Azelastine) is a steroid-free anihistamine nasal spray that provides relief for sneezing, sniffling, congestion, itchy, runny nose, and postnasal drip due to seasonal allergens.  Azelastine is designed to be used twice a day with each dosage providing 12-hour relief.  It is a second generation antihistamine to treat both seasonal allergic rhinitis and nonallergic vasomotor rhinitis.  Nonallergic vasomotor rhinitis symptoms are similar to allergic rhinitis symptoms but the triggers are not allergens but more of common indoor and outdoor irritants such s tobacco smoke, perfumes, colognes, hairspray, soaps, detergents, cleaners, paint and car exhaust fumes, and even temperature changes.
