How it works

Otrivine® Adult Nasal Spray contain the active ingredient xylometazoline hydrochloride that helps to open up and clear nasal passages by reducing nasal mucus and returning swollen blood vessels to their normal size.

How to use

We would suggest that you try not to blow your nose for the first few minutes allowing the medicine to get to work.

For Adults and Children over 12 years of age: 1 spray in each nostril 2 or 3 times daily.

  1. Clear your nose.
  2. Lean forward slightly and insert the nozzle into a nostril (see diagram).
  3. Squeeze the bottle once and sniff at the same time.
  4. Remove the nozzle before releasing the pressure on the bottle.
  5. Repeat for the other nostril.

Do not use continuously for more than 7 consecutive days. If symptoms persist consult your doctor or pharmacist. To avoid possible spread of infection, only one person should use each bottle.
