What is Nasal Congestion?
A blocked nose such as occurs with a cold, is caused by excessive nasal secretions and the swelling up of many tiny blood vessels that line the nose. The air passages become narrower and the nasal secretions may block the nose completely.
How does Otrivine help?
Otrivine helps to open up and clear the nasal passages by reducing the excessive nasal secretions and returning the yoU swollen blood vessels to their normal size. The effects start within minutes and last for up to ten hours.
Otrivine Adult Nasal Spray is for local application in the nose to give symptomatic relief of nasal congestion (including in colds), perennial and allergic rhinitis (including hay fever) and sinusitis.
