  • How to use Otrivin Menthol Nasal Metered-Dose Spray

    Remove the protective cap. Before the first application 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.

    Insert the nozzle into the nostril and press once firmly on the spray head and breathe in at the same time. Then withdraw the nozzle before releasing pressure. Repeat the operation in the other nostril. Replace the protective cap.

    The dosing spray ensures the Otrivin Menthol solution is well distributed over the surface of the nasal mucosa. The standardized valve with which it is fitted permits accuracy of dosage and precludes the possibility of unintentional overdosage.
