Otrivin Nasal Decongestant.

Otrivin, also known as xylometazoline nasal, is a decongestant. It works by constricting blood vessels in the nose and sinuses. This can help treat congestion associated with allergies, hay fever, sinus irritation, and the common cold.

Special Warning

Do not use this medication longer than 3 to 5 days as it can lead to damage of nasal tissue and lead to chronic congestion.

Before using Otrivin

Tell your doctor if you have used monoamine oxidase inhibitors such as isocarboxazid, phenelzine, or tranycypromine in the last 14 days. Using any of the above while using Otrivin could cause a dangerous drug reaction with serious side effects.

Tell your doctor if you have:

  • high blood pressure;
  • heart disease, hardening of the arteries, or irregular heart beats;
  • thyroid problems;
  • diabetes;
  • glaucoma or increased pressure in the eye;
  • an enlarged prostate or difficulty urinating;
  • liver disease;
  • kidney disease.

Do not use Otrivin if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding without first speaking with your doctor.

How to use Otrivin

Always use Otrivin exactly as prescribed by your doctor. To use the nasal spray, keep your head upright, then spray and inhale through the nose at the same time. To avoid infection do not let others use your medicine.

Otrivin should not be used more than two to three times a day. Store it at room temperature away from moisture and heat and children.

Severe side effects – Difficulty in breathing; closing of the throat; an allergic reaction: swelling of the lips, tongues, or face; or hives; seizures; unusual behavior or hallucinations; an irregular heartbeat.
