Oxymetazoline nasal spray is employed to alleviate nasal discomfort resulting from colds, allergies, and hay fever. It is also utilized to relieve sinus congestion and pressure. Oxymetazoline belongs to a class of medications known as nasal decongestants. Its mechanism of action involves narrowing the blood vessels in the nasal passages.

Uses and Dosage

Oxymetazoline is administered as a solution (liquid) to be sprayed into the nose. Typically, it is used every 10 to 12 hours as needed, but not more often than twice in a 24-hour period.

Use oxymetazoline nasal spray exactly as directed, avoiding using more or less of it or more often than prescribed by your doctor or directed on the label.

Do not use oxymetazoline nasal spray for more extended periods or more frequently than recommended, as prolonged use may result in worsening congestion or temporary relief followed by a return of symptoms.

You should not use oxymetazoline nasal spray for longer than 3 days. If your symptoms do not improve after 3 days of treatment, discontinue the use of oxymetazoline and contact your doctor.

Oxymetazoline nasal spray is meant for use only in the nose, and it should not be swallowed. To prevent the spread of infection, do not share your spray dispenser with anyone else. Rinse the tip of the dispenser with hot water or wipe it clean after each use.

Follow the specific directions for using the nasal spray as provided on the package label. If using a product with a pump dispenser, prime the pump by pressing down on the rim several times before the first dose. When ready to use the spray, hold your head upright without tilting, place the tip of the bottle in your nostril, and administer the spray according to the instructions.
