Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Otrivin (xylometazoline) is a medication used to treat nasal congestion caused by allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, and respiratory infections. Otrivin is available as treatment outside of the United States and there is no FDA approval for this usage.
Nasal congestion can be caused by a variety of conditions including influenza, viral nasopharyngitis, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, and others. During nasal congestion, the sinus passages become constricted and breathing may be partially or fully occluded.
Otrivin (xylometazoline) is a direct-acting sympathomimetic alpha-receptor agonist. By activating alpha receptors, xylometazoline vasoconstricts the blood vessels that supply the nasal passages. Vasoconstriction leads to decreased blood flow and the relaxation of nasal passages with associated congestion relief.
The primary Otrivin nasal spray use is to relieve congestion.
Otrivin (xylometazoline) is normally sprayed into the affected nostril(s) two to three times daily as needed for nasal congestion. However, the directions may vary with each product, so take Otrivin (xylometazoline) as directed on the packaging.
Do not use Otrivin for longer than three days in a row because it may cause rebound congestion.
The active ingredient in Otrivin is xylometazoline.
Those with a history of cardiovascular disorders should use caution before taking Otrivin. Otrivin works by constricting blood vessels, which more worsen certain heart and vascular conditions.
Before using Otrivin, tell your doctor if you have an endocrine disorder including thyroid conditions or diabetes.
Adverse effects of Otrivin may include:
If you experience these side effects while taking Otrivin, stop taking the medication and speak with your doctor.
