I have allergies. I use ATROVENT and Qnasl. I rinse my sinuses before. Then ATROVENT. Then Qnasl. My nose still runs after. When can I blow my nose?
Before the spray: If Qnasl & Atrovent failed to control the runny nose, it is time for you to consult an allergist.

Preferably you should blow your nose or irrigate your sinuses before using any spray. ...Read more

How come I get allergy shots n take allegra with atrovent nasal spray in mornings & zyrtec with benydryl n dymista at night, and still have allergies?

Another couple of treatments you might consider is nasal saline irrigation and nasal steroids if you haven't been on them in the past. ...Read more
Have an allergy most of the time in Florida. Am otherwise healthy. Is HTN a very common side effect of ipratropium bromide nasal solution or not?
Can Ipratropium Bromide nasal spray help with post-nasal drip? No runny nose or front nasal discharge, just the drip. Not linked to allergy (per ENT)
Depends: It depends on the cause for the post-nasal drips. If the nasal drips is not linked to nasal stuffiness, sneezing, or runny nose, one needs to consider other causes (sinus infection for example). If your nose and eyes itch, it is likely from allergy which can confirmed by the history and skin testing. One can't tell whether one has an allergic problem by looking at the nose and throat alone. ...Read more

Absolutely: Proventil (albuterol) and atrovent (ipratropium bromide) are very commonly recommend to be used together for treatment of airway bronchospasm commonly seen in asthma or copd.

Nasal antihistamine: You probably need a nasal antihistamine, it will dry it up, if not, a combination nasal steroid and antihistamine should also help.

Yes: Yes it can. Both are bronchodilators, meaning they open up your airways so are often used for asthma or COPD. They work in different pathways though, which is why sometimes the physician will prescribe both. For instance, studies show that giving atrovent (ipratropium) and albuterol in the first 24 hours of an acute asthma attack in kids while in the ER speeds up recovery. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Typically, in non-urgent use is 4h. Albuterol is used in emegent situations more frequently guided by md. ...Read more

Several options, but: This is a forum for general information, not specific medical care or advice.

Mild croup can be treated with cool moist air and a happy home (avoid crying). Bad croup is treated by an ambulance ride to the ER, oxygen, vaporized epinephrine plus a steroid injection. ...Read more

Hold them for now: It may be due to nasal irritation, which can be a side effect of either medicine.
