Prescription of this medicine
For relief from nasal discomfort brought on by colds, allergies, and hay fever, try oxymetazoline nasal spray. Additionally, sinus pressure and congestion are reduced by it. Children under the age of six should not be treated with oxymetazoline nasal spray unless a doctor specifically prescribes it. Oxymetazoline nasal spray should be used carefully and under adult supervision by children aged 6 to 12. The drug oxymetazoline belongs to the group of drugs known as nasal decongestants.
