Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2013.


The blocker of histamine H 1 -receptors, a derivative of phthalazinone.
It has a long anti-allergic and membrane-stabilizing effect, reduces capillary permeability and exudation, stabilizes the membrane of mast cells and prevents the release of biologically active substances (including histamine, serotonin, leukotrienes, platelet activating factor), causing bronchospasm and promoting early and late stage of allergic reactions and inflammation.
With local application, the systemic effect is negligible.

With intranasal administration reduces itching and stuffiness of the nose, sneezing and rhinorrhea.
Attenuation of symptoms of allergic rhinitis is noted from 15 minutes after application and lasts up to 12 hours or more.
With prolonged use in high doses, there was no clinically significant effect of azelastine on the QT interval.


Bioavailability after intranasal application is about 40%.
C max in the blood after intranasal use is achieved after 2-3 hours. When administered intranasally in the recommended daily dose of 1.1 mg C ss in the blood is less than 1% of the dose (1 ng / ml). The concentration of the drug in the serum after intranasal use is 8 times lower than after oral administration. In patients with allergic rhinitis, the concentration in the blood is higher than in healthy people.
Other pharmacokinetic data were studied when administered orally .

Binding to blood proteins - 80-90%.

Metabolised in the liver by oxidation with the participation of the cytochrome P450 system with the formation of the active metabolite desmethylazelastine.

It is excreted mainly by the kidneys in the form of inactive metabolites.
T 1/2 azelastine - about 20 h, its active metabolite desmethylazelastine - about 45 h.
