When should you use Otrivin?
Otrivin should be used when you have a blocked nose due to cold and breathing becomes difficult.
What is blocked nose?
A blocked nose results from cold due to excessive nasal secretions and swelling of many tiny blood vessels in the inner lining of nose. The air passages become narrower & nasal secretions may give rise to a feeling of complete nasal blockage.
How does Otrivin help?
Otrivin helps in opening up the nasal passages by reducing the excessive nasal secretions and returns the swollen blood vessels to their normal size. Otrivin works faster (acts in 2 minutes) and provides long lasting relief (up to 12 hours). This is because Otrivin nasal solution is applied directly inside the nose. Otrivin relieves the toughest nasal congestion so that one can breathe freely again. Otrivin is now available as a nasal spray so that the solution can spread evenly inside the nose.
Spray — Adults and children over 6 years: 1 or 2 applications from the nasal spray into each nostril, 2 to 3 times a day.
Drops — Adults and children over 6 years: 2 or 3 drops of the solution into each nostril, 2 to 3 times a day.
