Why Arzep for Allergy?
The active ingredient in Arzep is a potent, long-acting, fast-acting, antihistamine.
It’s intended for nasal administration in adults and pediatric patients over 5 years old. It is available in generic form. You can buy Azelastine HCL here at a cheaper price.
How does Arzep work?
Arzep acts by blocking certain natural substances in the body called histamines. It is responsible for several nasal symptoms. Histamines bind to the H1 receptor in small blood vessels in the nasal passages. This causes them to leak, allowing white blood cells and blood proteins into the tissues causing the tissue to swell and become irritated.
Azelastine in Arzep binds to H1 receptors and blocks histamine-mediated actions. It also acts directly on the mast cells reducing the amount of histamine being released. Azelastine also works locally on the nasal passages relieving the symptoms such as:
- An increased mucous production
- Nasal swelling and congestion
- Conjunctival redness.
This dual action of Arzep can reduce several nasal symptoms caused by allergic reactions.
How to use Arzep?
Arzep comes in a bottle which is equipped with a nozzle to facilitate the spraying of the solution. Before using this product, consult your doctor first. Your doctor will inform you of your required dosage frequency. Before using the nasal spray, remove the protective cap and shake the bottle. Apply one spray into each nostril twice daily, morning and evening or as instructed by your doctor. Use Arzep regularly. You can use it continuously for up to 6 months.
