  • How to use

    Otrivin Adult Nasal Spray gets to work in 5 minutes and lasts for up to 10 hours. The maximum daily dose to be sprayed is 2-3 times a day, once in each nostril. Do not use for more than three days at a time unless advised by a doctor or pharmacist. If congestion persists for more than 3 days, seek medical advice.

    1. Do not cut the nozzle. The metered dose spray is ready to prime before use.
    2. Clear your nose.
    3. Remove protective cap.
    4. Before using for the first time, prime the pump by actuating 4 times. Once primed, the pump will normally remain charged throughout regular daily treatment periods. If the spray is not ejected during the full actuation stroke, or if the product has not been used for longer than 7 days, the pump will need to be reprimed with 4 actuations. Be very careful not to spray in the eyes or mouth.
