Kroger Nasal Spray is very effective in my opinion and the best nose spray I have tried. It contains oxymetazoline hcl. This is the same ingredient as in Afrin, Dristan nose spray, Neo-Synephrine Nasal Decongestant, and Vicks etc. Some nose sprays contain one type of ingredient and others contain a different ingredient. The ingredient can usually be found on the bottle.
What’s nice about this product is that it comes in a pump bottle so it sprays a mist that goes on easier and more effectively. I think this is the key to it working so well. You use 2 or 3 sprays in each nostril. It is advertised to last 12 hours. On me it lasted about 9 hours or so. It allowed me to get a full night sleep when I had a cold. The other great thing about it is that it costs half of what name brands cost.
It is recommended for people 6 years old and on up.
It has the usual warnings to consult with a doctor before using if you are pregnant, breast feeding, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, diabetes, or trouble urinating due to an enlarged prostrate gland.
