In brief: Yes
The use of this drug which constricts blood vessels may eventually lead to rebound.
That is, the blood vessels in the lateral wall of the nose will actually produce more congestion. Neo-synephrine should be used for a maximum of 2-3 days. It is very important to know if the congestion is the result of a viral infection or nasal allergy or more seriously, nasal polyps. Get a diagnosis.
