How to use your nasal spray

Nasal sprays are commonly used for cold and allergies.  Using one is quite simple               

  • Clear the nose of all mucus by gently blowing               
  • Open and shake the spray bottle many times before use               
  • While keeping your head upright, block one nostril with your finger              
  • Insert the tip of spray into the other nostril (best if directed to back of the nose, not the tip), press down as you breathe in slowly through the nose              
  • Repeat process with the other nostril

Tips               

  • Use medication as directed by doctor and drug label               
  • Some medications may leave a bitter taste, drinking some water will help           
  • Overuse of nose sprays (except saline solutions) could damage the inside of the nose so it best not exceed the recommended days of use as directed.
