  • How it works

    How it works

    Otrivin Paed 0.05% MD Spray contains xylometazoline hydrochloride, the number one nasal decongestant. It rapidly relieves nasal congestion by locally constricting blood vessels in the nasal mucosa, reducing the swelling and opening the airways. It also facilitates drainage of the openings that connect the sinuses to the nasal cavity to ensure they remain open.1

  • How to use

    How to use

    For children aged 1 to 5 years, spray once into each nostril between 1 and 3 times daily. The metered dose spray permits accuracy of dosage and ensures the solution is well distributed over the surface of the nasal mucosa.

    1. Clear the nose by blowing gently.
    2. Shake the bottle.
    3. Hold the bottle upright. When using for the first time, prime with a few pumping motions until an even spray is achieved.
    4. Lean the child’s head forward slightly and insert the nozzle into a nostril.
    5. Spray while breathing in gently, then repeat process for the other nostril.

    We suggest not blowing the nose for the first few minutes after use to allow the medicine to start working.

    If symptoms persist consult your doctor or pharmacist. To avoid possible spread of infection, only one person should use each bottle.
