In brief: Spray laterally
The correct method of using a nasal spray is to insert the opening of the spray bottle and pointing the intranasal spray toward the eye, in other words, up and toward the side of the nose.
In this manner the spray will make contact with the tissue in the lateral wall of the inside of the nasal mucosa. The spray usually should not be sprayed straight back. Incidentally, what spray are you using?
