      When ever myself or any person of my family had nasal congestion due to common cold or any other infection, I use to take Otrivin nasal drop. It gives me instant relief from nasal blockage. Being doctor I also prescribe my patient same medicine.


      it gives instant result , most of people prefer it. It is also available separately for paediatric use. Otrivin nasal drop for adult is not recommended for children below 6 years, so for children it is advisable to use Otrivin paediatric Nasal drop after ...

      • doctor’s advise only.

        Though it has advantage of quick result there are some disadvantages also. It has some adverse effects like dryness of mouth and throat, sneezing, rebound congestion, local stinging. It is avoid to infants and pregnant women. Its content is Xylometazoline hcl,

        0.1% in 10ml drop bottle for adult and 0.05% in 10ml drop bottle for paediatric use available.

        Even though it gives instant result, never use it routinely, but advice only when much more essential and under observation( in some specific case)and advice of doctor.

    I`ve been using otrivin by novartis for almost six to seven months now, it does provide quick relief but is highly addictive if you suffer from constant nose blocks. Best advice is to avoid using this drug. I am looking out for alternatives… some of the side affects i have noted is mood swings, sever headaches, dry mucus formation… these are a few. Use this medicine only and only for a short period and DON`T GET ADDICTED TO IT.
