Friday, April 8

Did you know that nasal drops and sprays can be addictive?

Allergy nurse Bonnie Dooley, RN, of Eastern VA Ear, Nose and Throat says many of the over-the-counter sprays create "rebound swelling" and even worse congestion when they are used beyond the recommended dosage.

What's recommended? --No more than three consecutive days!

Alternatives: saline solution or steroid sprays by prescription.
