Description of Atrovent Nasal Spray
Atrovent Nasal Spray is used to treat a runny nose caused due to seasonal allergy. The generic name of the drug is Ipratropium Romide. It contains the active ingredient ipratropium bromide monohydrate that prevents the mucus glands from producing extra watery mucus which results in a runny nose.
You must buy Atrovent Nasal Spray as per the prescription of your doctor. Blow your nose before using the spray. Open the cap and safety clip of the spray. Place the tip of the spray in to one nostril and close the other nostril with your fingers. Keep the bottle upright and spray the drug. Sniff deeply while spraying and breathe out through your mouth. Repeat the same procedure with the other nostril. Don’t spray Atrovent Nasal Spray in the eyes. Replace the cap and safety clip. After using the spray, tilt your head backwards and hold for 10 seconds so that the spray will spread to the back of the nose.
