Allergodil nasal spray – Use | Effects
Allergodil nasal spray is a drug from the group of antihistamines. This spray works by blocking the effects of histamine and therefore relieves the symptoms of an allergy. Therefore, Allergodil is useful in the treatment of allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever). It contains the active ingredient azelastine. This remedy relieves symptoms such as sneezing and runny nose.
