A 35-year-old male asked:

I have been prescribed dexarhina nasal spray for upper respiratory infection, but it does nothing for my stuffy nose, can i replace it with otrivin?

Well: I presume that dexrhina contains Dexamethasone which should not be used for infection and would not be expected to work. I also presume the Otrivin is a nasal decongestant which can be used but should be limited to no more than 5 days .
