Understanding Atrovent Nasal Spray Side Effects

As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Atrovent® nasal spray (ipratropium nasal spray). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
