In brief: Big Difference
Saline nasal sprays are just salt water sprays.
You can use saline as nasal sprays as often as you like for as long as you like. Neosynephrine nose drops, however, are decongesting nose drops. It works quite well but.....This may only be used for 3 days in a row as your nasal tissues can be physiological dependent on them (i.E you can get hooked on them).
