The generic ingredient in Atrovent Nasal Spray is ipratropium bromide monohydrate, which belongs to the class of drugs called anticholinergics. Atrovent Nasal Spray provides relief from a runny nose in patients with allergies that last throughout the year.
Doctors prescribe Atrovent to treat rhinorrhea, or runny nose, which is associated with allergies. When applied in the nose, Atrovent Nasal Spray stops the glands from producing excessive nasal secretions.
Normally, acetylcholine acts on muscarinic (or cholinergic) receptors and produces mucous in the nose. Anticholinergic medications like Atrovent block these receptors and help dry up a runny nose.
For runny nose associated with allergies, the usual dosage is two sprays nasally, two or three times per day, with Atrovent Nasal Spray 0.03%. Close one nostril by gently placing your finger against the side of your nose. After each spray, sniff deeply and breathe out through your mouth. After all the spraying is complete, tilt your head backwards for a few seconds. Maximum benefit may not occur for up to several weeks after the start of treatment.
These may not be all the side effects of Atrovent Nasal Spray 0.03%.
Atrovent Nasal Spray should not be used by patients with allergic reaction to ipratropium bromide, atropine or atropine-like drugs, or to any component of the drug. Atrovent is not recommended for use in children under 12 years of age.
Tell your doctor if you have any other health problems, especially glaucoma or difficulty urinating. Let your doctor know if you are taking any other anticholinergic drugs at the same time.
Store tightly closed between 15°C and 30°C. Avoid excessive heat or freezing. Keep out of reach of children.
A runny nose, or medically speaking rhinorrhea, is a thin, relatively clear nasal discharge that may run out of your nose, down the back of your throat, or both. Allergies or irritants that are present throughout the year may be causing your runny nose. While most allergies can't be cured, treatments can help relieve your allergy symptoms.
