HOW IT WORKS:
Otrivin 0.1% Metered Dose Nasal Spray contains the active ingredient, Xylometazoline hydrochloride, which unblocks your nose by reducing swelling of the mucosa. It also helps sinus drainage so mucus can be drained out, easing painful sinus pressure.
Otrivin Nasal Spray should be administered as follows: 1 spray in each nostril up to 3 times per day.
1. Clear your nose.
2. Lean forward slightly and insert the nozzle into a nostril.
3. Spray and breathe in gently through the nose at the same time.
4. Repeat for the other nostril.
If cold symptoms persist or worsen consult your doctor or pharmacist. To avoid the possible spread of infection, only one person should use each pack.
