Ipratropium nasal spray is available in two distinct strengths, each serving a specific therapeutic purpose. Ipratropium nasal spray 0.06% is prescribed to alleviate rhinorrhea induced by the common cold or seasonal allergies (hay fever) in adult patients and children aged 5 years and above. Ipratropium nasal spray 0.03% is employed to mitigate rhinorrhea and nasal congestion stemming from perennial allergic and nonallergic rhinitis in adult patients and children aged 6 years and older. Classified as an anticholinergic medication, ipratropium nasal spray functions by diminishing the production of nasal mucus.

Uses and Dosage

Ipratropium is administered as a nasal spray for intranasal use. When utilizing ipratropium nasal spray 0.06% for common cold treatment, it is typically applied into each nostril three to four times daily, for a maximum duration of four days. For seasonal allergies, ipratropium nasal spray 0.06% is generally administered four times daily into the nostrils for up to three weeks.

In the case of ipratropium nasal spray 0.03%, it is typically used two to three times a day by spraying into the nostrils. Adhere to a consistent schedule by employing ipratropium nasal spray at approximately the same times every day.

Strictly follow the instructions provided on your prescription label, and seek clarification from your doctor or pharmacist regarding any unclear aspects. Adhere precisely to the prescribed directions for using ipratropium nasal spray. Do not exceed or reduce the recommended dosage or frequency of use as determined by your doctor.

Avoid spraying ipratropium nasal spray in or around the eyes. In the event of accidental eye exposure, promptly rinse your eyes with cool tap water for several minutes. If ipratropium enters the eyes, you may encounter symptoms such as blurred vision, visual halos or colored images, redness, exacerbation or onset of narrow-angle glaucoma, dilated pupils, sudden eye pain, and heightened sensitivity to light. Should ipratropium come into contact with your eyes or if any of these symptoms occur, promptly contact your doctor.

Do not alter the size of the nasal spray opening, as this would impact the amount of medication delivered.
