What is Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray?

Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray is designed to help to relieve blocked and stuffy noses. It helps to clear your nasal passages so you can breathe more easily. Ideal for those suffering with a blocked nose and looking for a quick and simple solution.

 

Why do I have a blocked nose?

There are many reasons why you might develop a blocked nose, as it’s an incredibly common issue to have. Some of the most common causes of a blocked or stuffy nose include:

  • Cold and flu
  • Hay fever
  • Rhinitis
  • Sinusitis or a sinus infection
  • Reaction to medication

 

How will this product clear my blocked nose?

Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray contains the active ingredient xylometazoline hydrochloride, which helps to clear your nasal passages. It does this by helping swollen blood vessels in your nose return to the right size, giving you more room to breathe. It also helps to reduce excessive secretions produced in your nose, reducing blockage.

 

How to use Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray.

Before using Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray, clear your nose by blowing it gently. Lean forward and insert the nozzle into your nostril. Breathe in and press the pump down at the same time, depositing Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray into your nose. Repeat in the other nostril. Spray one dose of Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray into each nostril 2 – 3 times a day for up to 7 days.

 

When should Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray not be used?

Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray is not suitable for use on children under the age of 12. Do not use Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray if you are allergic to xylometazoline hydrochloride or any of the other listed ingredients. This product should not be used by those who have recently had neurosurgery. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using Otrivine Metered Dose Nasal Spray if you:

  • Have hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland).

  • Have heart disease.
  • Have circulatory disease.
  • Are pregnant or breast feeding.
  • Have hypertension.
  • Have recently taken any other medicines, especially MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) or any other antidepressants.
