Ocean Nasal Spray Side Effects

ocean nasal spray side effects ocean nasal spray reactions

There is nothing worse than the catarrh you get after a cold, your nose is stuffed-up, you can't breathe especially at night and your throat is sore because you have to breathe through your mouth.

Ocean Spray is the brand-name for a sodium chloride nasal spray which will clear up these problems. The spray helps to get rid of the mucus that causes the congestion and is good for hay fever sufferers as it can be used as often as necessary. It contains no drugs so it can be used by people who are taking other prescribed medication.

What it does contain is saline, which is another name for sodium chloride. This is a purified gentle salt solution, hence the name "Ocean Spray."  The salt concentration is the same concentration as the salt in the human body, so it will not affect blood pressure.

Users may experience a stinging sensation when they first use it, and also may sneeze but this is the initial reaction to the membranes coming into contact the with solution and is not harmful.They may also find they have a salty taste in their mouth when using it.

It is very rare for anyone using the spray to have any side-effects but if any of the following symptoms occur medical help should be sought immediately.

  • Frequent nose bleeds
  • Swelling of the face, tongue or throat
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath

Many people use this spray with no difficulties at all, but on a very rare occasion someone might have a severe allergic reaction to the saline which could cause any or all of the above symptoms.

It has been on the market for more than 30 years and it has been used by millions of people since it first came out in 1973. It is the spray recommended by doctors to people suffering from chronic nasal congestion, sinus congestion, dry nose and irritated nasal passages.

It is also used after nasal surgery and by people who suffer from allergies, sinusitis, colds and rhinitis. The doctor or pharmacist will recommend the dosage and over-use could cause the membranes of the nose to swell and make the user immune to relieving the congestion.

It is recommended each member of the family has their own spray to avoid infection from the entire family using the same bottle.

Doctors also recommend the container tip should not touch the inside of the nose, the solution should be sprayed in each nostril as prescribed without any contact with the bottle,
