What would be the best way to get off nasal spray?

Nasal spray: I assume you are referring to an over the counter decongestant nasal spray that is very addictive if used more than 3 days.

Perhaps: Dayquil contains Acetaminophen (tylenol), phenylephrine (decongestant) and dextramethorphan (cough suppressant).

What to do if i'm addicted to OTC nasal spray?

What to do if i'm addicted to OTC nasal spray?

Depends on what: Are the underlying problems. In some people, it is really a stimulant dependency, and chemical dependency treatment is really ncessary.

See an ENT doctor first, then mental health help. ...Read more
