When Otrivin is administered into nasal cavities, it exerts a vaso-constrictive effect of leading to decongestion of the nasal and pharyngeal mucosa. Otrivin thus makes it easier to breathe through the nose when suffering from a cold or chill.
The effect of Otrivin is felt within a few minutes and lasts up to 10 hours.
Otrivin Children is also available for infants and small children up to 6 years of age.
