Azelastine, a phthalazinone derivative, exhibits histamine H1 receptor antagonist activity in isolated tissues, animal models and humans. It is administered as a racemic mixture with no difference in pharmacologic activity noted between the enantiomers in invitro studies. The major metabolite, desmethylazelastine, also possesses H1-receptor antagonist activity.
In clinical trials, the occurrence of somnolence has been reported in some patients taking Azelastine nasal spray; due caution should therefore be exercised when driving a car or operating potentially dangerous machinery. Concurrent use of this nasal spray with alcohol or other CNS depressants should be avoided because additional reductions in alertness and additional impairment of CNS performance may occur.
It is especially important to check before combining Azelastine nasal spray with Alcohol, CNS depressants, Cimetidine & Ketoconazole.
Use in pregnancy: The effects of Azelastine during pregnancy have not been adequately studied. Azelastine should be administered during pregnancy, if the potential benefit justifies the potential risks to fetus.
Use in nursing mother: It is not known whether Azelastine is excreted in human milk. However, caution should be exercised when Azelastine is administered to a nursing mother.
