Rebound: Rhinitis Medicamentosa or rebound nasal congestion from this class of nasal sprays is almost universal if used more than just 3 days. I usually recommend using it for 3 more days while starting a nasal steroid spray then YOU MUST STOP the OTRIVN while continuing the nasal steroid which doesn't ever give instant relief like otrivin but prevents nasal congestion. Sometimes Prednisone is necessary
