Best nasal spray for post nasal drip?

Best nasal spray for post nasal drip?

No single best spray: Unfortunately, there's no single best spray for everyone in the States where HealthTap docs are located. It's even trickier to determine best spray for someone outside of States, in say UK. Saline sprays (salt water) are safe. Sinus rinses are fine as long as you don't use tap water. In States, some corticosteroid sprays are available OTC w/o prescription. Stay away from nasal decongestants sprays

Which nasal spray should I buy for my allergies?

Talk with your doc: The best for nasal allergies is a corticosteroid nasal spray (flonase, nasonex, (mometasone) rhinocort, etc.) that must be prescribed by your doctor. These all work about the same, though some people may respond better to 1 vs another. Dryness can be helped by otc saline sprays. Otc nasal rinses (e.g. Neti pot) can help as well. Avoid using otc decongestant sprays for more than ~3 days at a time. See your md.

How long will nasal spray withdrawal symptoms go on?

Several weeks: The abuse of over the counter nasal sprays results in rebound secondary to constricting the blood vessels and eventually overuse results in dilating those same blood vessels. This then leads to nasal obstruction secondary to swelling of the membrane. Recovery depends on the duration of time you have abused the spray. Topical or systemic steroids may help after stopping the spray.

Is drixine nasal spray similar to nasonex (mometasone)?

Is drixine nasal spray similar to nasonex (mometasone)?

Very different: Nasonex (mometasone) is a prescription nasal steroid spray to effectively treat nasal allergies in patients over 2 years old. It is the most effective treatment for nasal allergies and used on a regular basis. Drixine is available over the counter oxymetazoline, a nasal decongestant which works quickly but designed for short term use (less than 4-6 days) due to risk of rebound nasal congestion.
