Healing Power:5 out of 5
No dependency problems:4 out of 5

Sex: F
Age: 71
Time Taken: approximately 6 weeks days

Reason: cold, nasal congestion Date: 15 November 2010
Side Effects
I was warned by the pharmacist not to take it for more than three days, so to be cautious I only took it for two days and discontinued it. I developed a rebound effect that has lasted for over one month. I have tried antihistamines, etc and nothing stops the continual nasal dripping. No other medication has ever had this effect on me and I do not have any seasonal allergies. I have not used it again and will not.

Additional Thoughts
I will never use Otrivin again or recommend it to anyone. Are there any recommendations to stop this?
