Otrivine Congestion Relief 0.1% Nasal Spray

Otrivine Congestion Relief 0.1% Nasal Spray provides relief from nasal congestion due to colds, sinusitis and inflammation due to hayfever and other allergies. The active ingredient is xylometazoline hydrochloride which helps to open up and clear the nasal passages by reducing the excessive nasal secretions and returning the swollen blood vessels to their normal size.
Adults and children over 12 years of age: One spray in each nostril 1 to 3 times daily as needed
  1. Blow the nose gently.
  2. Remove protective cap.
  3. Do not cut the nozzle.
  4. Before the first application, prime the pump by actuating (depressing the pump) 4 times. Once primed the pump will normally remain charged throughout regular daily treatment periods. Should the spray not be ejected during the full actuation, the pump will need to be re-primed by actuating 4 times. Be very careful not to spray in the eyes or mouth.
  5. Hold the bottle upright with thumb under base and nozzle between two fingers.
  6. Lean forward slightly and insert the nozzle into the nostril.
  7. Spray and breathe in gently through the nose at the same time.
  8. Repeat with the other nostril.
  9. Clean and dry the nozzle before replacing back the cap right after use.
To avoid possible spread of infection, this pack should only be used by one person.
