Atrovent Nasal Spray Dosage
The Atrovent nasal spray dosage for treating a runny nose will be based on several factors, such as your age, the cause of your runny nose, other medications you are taking, and other medical conditions you have. Atrovent nasal spray is typically taken two to four times a day. In order for the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
The dose of Atrovent® nasal spray (ipratropium nasal spray) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your age
- The cause of your runny nose
- Other medications you may be taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your Atrovent nasal spray dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
