Is a saline nasal spray safe to use with asthma and allergies? Thanks.

Absolutely: Saline irrigation of the nose is safe and effective. I encourage all my nasal allergy patients to rinse their nose. There are also non=allergic forms of nasal disease as well as chronic sinusitis, where nasal irrigation is crucial.

2 sprays each nostri: The usual dose is 2 sprays each nostril once daily. Potentially better control of the nasal symptoms may improve asthma but the effects are variable.
