GSK adds first adult P med decongestant nasal spray to Otrivine


GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has introduced the first adult pharmacy (P) medicine decongestant nasal spray to its Otrivine range.

Available from this month, Otrivine Extra Dual Relief relieves “blocked and runny noses from colds, helps alleviate sinus pressure and reduces sneezing”, GSK said.

The “pharmacy strength” spray contains the active ingredients 0.5mg/ml xylometazoline hydrochloride and 0.6mg/ml ipratropium bromide, which GSK brand manager Christie Matthews said “helps relieve nasal cold symptoms fast”.

The product can be used by administering one puff in each nostril, up to three times a day, with at least six hours between doses.

One 10ml bottle of Otrivine Extra Dual Relief nasal spray retails at £7.99.

To order, call 0800 783 8881.
