Olopatadine nasal spray is employed to alleviate sneezing, as well as a congested, runny, or itchy nose associated with allergic rhinitis (hay fever). Belonging to the class of medications known as antihistamines, olopatadine operates by inhibiting the effects of histamine, a substance in the body responsible for triggering allergy symptoms.

Uses and Dosage

Olopatadine is available in a liquid form for nasal spray application. Typically, olopatadine nasal spray is administered by spraying it into each nostril twice a day.

Adhere to the prescribed usage of olopatadine nasal spray, avoiding both excess use and insufficient application.

For children under 12 years old, an adult should assist with the administration of olopatadine nasal spray. It’s important to note that children below 6 years of age should not use this medication.

Olopatadine nasal spray is intended for nasal use only. Refrain from swallowing the nasal spray, and take care not to spray it into your eyes or mouth.

Each bottle of olopatadine nasal spray is designated for individual use. Sharing the nasal spray is discouraged to prevent the potential spread of germs.

While olopatadine nasal spray effectively manages the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis, it does not cure the condition. Continue using the nasal spray as directed, even if you feel well and are not currently experiencing symptoms, unless your doctor advises otherwise. Delaying doses may result in the return or worsening of symptoms.

Olopatadine nasal spray is designed for a specific number of sprays (240). After reaching the indicated number of sprays, the remaining liquid in the bottle may not contain the correct medication dosage. Keep track of the number of sprays used, and discard the bottle after reaching the specified limit, even if there is still some liquid remaining.

To administer the nasal spray follow these instructions:

  1. Remove the protective cap before using the spray.
  2. Close one nostril by pressing it with your finger.
  3. Tilt your head as directed and carefully insert the nasal applicator into the other nostril.
  4. Press down firmly on the device to administer the prescribed number of sprays. Avoid spraying directly onto the middle wall of your nose (nasal septum).
  5. Breathe in gently through your nose and out through your mouth.
  6. Repeat the process in the other nostril.
  7. Replace the cap on the nasal inhaler.
  8. Refrain from blowing your nose for 15 minutes after using this medication.

Can I use Patanase Nasal Spray for a sinus infection?
