No: The nasal spray going down the throat will not do harm. However, the nasal spray is not doing any good. You can make a salt solution at home, if you must rinse your nose. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
