How to use Atrovent Nasal Spray.
Atrovent Nasal Spray relieves runny nose due to hay fever and cold. Before using Atrovent, tell your doctor about any of the following: if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding; if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine; if you are taking blood thinners; if you have stomach problems; if you have peptic ulcers; if you have any other medical conditions like liver or kidney function impairment, or heart problems.
How to Use Atrovent
- Prime the pump before the first use by pointing the bottle upright and away from your eyes and spraying 7 times.
- If the pump is not used for more than 24 hours, prime again by spraying 2 times.
- If the pump is not used for more than seven days, prime again by spraying 7 sprays.
- Before using, blow your nose gently if necessary. Close one nostril by gently placing your finger against the side of your nose. Tilt your head slightly forward and, keeping the bottle upright, insert the nasal tip into the other nostril. Point the tip toward the back and outer side of the nose.
- Press firmly and quickly upwards with your thumb at the base of the bottle while holding the white “shoulders” of the pump between your index and middle fingers.
- After each spray, sniff deeply and breathe out through your mouth.
- After spraying and removing the bottle, tilt your head backwards for a few seconds to let the spray spread over the back of the nose. Replace the plastic dust cap after each use.
- If the nasal tip becomes clogged, remove the plastic dust cap and safety clip.
- Hold the nasal tip under running warm tap water for about a minute. Dry the nasal tip, re-prime the nasal spray pump, and replace the dust cap and safety clip.
