Drug Description


Claritin Nasal Pump is used to ease nasal congestion arising from colds, allergies, and hay fever, and to relieve sinus congestion and pressure. 

As a nasal decongestant, Claritin Nasal Pump functions by constricting blood vessels in the nasal area, thereby reducing swelling and congestion. 

Uses and Dosage 

Claritin Nasal Pump is for intranasal use only. Adhere to all instructions provided on the product packaging or as your healthcare provider prescribes. Should you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. 

Typically, Claritin is administered with 2 to 3 sprays every 10 to 12 hours, as needed, but not exceeding twice within a 24-hour. 

To properly use this nasal pump, follow these steps: 

  1. Before initial use, remove the protective cap from the tip and prime the metered pump by firmly depressing it several times. 
  2. Shake the bottle thoroughly before each application. 
  3. Gently blow your nose before using the nasal pump. 
  4. To spray, hold the bottle with your thumb at the base and the nozzle between your first and second fingers. 
  5. Without tilting your head, insert the nozzle into your nostril, fully depress the rim with a firm, even stroke, and inhale deeply. 
  6. Refrain from spraying the medication on your eyes or the middle of your nose (nasal septum). 
  7. Repeat steps 2-5 for the other nostril if necessary. 
  8. After use, wipe the nozzle clean. 

Limit your usage of this medication to no more than 3 days, as exceeding this duration may result in rebound congestion, characterized by persistent nasal redness, swelling, and increased runny nose. If such symptoms emerge, discontinue use, and seek guidance from your healthcare provider or pharmacist. 

To achieve the best outcome, adhere precisely to the instructions for using Claritin Nasal Spray. Avoid exceeding the recommended frequency, number of sprays, or duration, as this may heighten the likelihood of experiencing adverse effects. 

Notify your healthcare provider if there is a worsening of symptoms or if they persist beyond three days.
