Otrivin Moisturising Paediatric

Moisturising Paediatric pack shot

Unblocks your child’s nose quickly, within a matter of minutes1

Otrivin Moisturising Paediatric nasal spray is specially formulated to unblock children’s noses rapidly and is designed specifically for children aged between 1 and 11 years old.1

Decongestion of the nasal mucosa and neighbouring tissues of the pharynx improves nasal airflow.1,2


Rapid relief and long-lasting nasal decongestion1 with soothing and moisturising benefits3,4

Otrivin Moisturising Paediatric contains xylometazoline, a topical decongestant that acts locally on the nasal mucosa.

  • Relief is rapid – within a matter of 2-5 minutes, rather than up to half an hour for oral decongestants2
  • It provides a longer duration of action – up to 12 hours; oral decongestants only last for half that time2

The addition of sorbitol and hypromellose soothes and moisturises dry and irritated nasal passageways.3,4

  • Directions

    Dosing Instructions for Otrivin Moisturising Paediatric nasal drops:

    1. Gently clear your child's nose
    2. Before applying the nasal drops to your child’s nose, practice your dosage control by using the bottle as dropper
    3. Tilt your child's head slightly back (as far as is comfortable)
    4. Without touching the nose, very carefully apply the drop(s) into each nostril. Keep the head tilted back for a short time to allow the drops to spread throughout the nose
    5. If the drop completely misses the child's nose, simply administer the drop again
    6. If any part of the drop gets into the nose, do not administer the drop again
    7. Repeat with the other nostril
    8. Clean and dry the nozzle before replacing it back into the bottle immediately after use
    9. To avoid possible spread of infection, the bottle should only be used by one person

    The usual recommended dose of Otrivin Moisturising Paediatric nasal drops is:

    For children or babies 1-5 years of age with adult supervision: 1-2 drops into each nostril, every 8-10 hours. Do not exceed 3 applications daily into each nostril.

    For children 6-11 years of age with adult supervision: 2-4 drops into each nostril, 2-3 times daily as needed. Do not exceed 3 applications daily into each nostril.

  • Warnings & Precautions

    Keep out of sight and reach of children. Do not use in children aged less than 1 year old.

    Nasal drops containing xylometazoline, like other sympathomimetic agents, should be used with caution in children showing a strong reaction to adrenergic substances, as manifested by signs of insomnia, dizziness, tremors, cardiac arrhythmia, or elevated blood pressure.1

    The concomitant use of xylometazoline with monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors or tri- and tetra-cyclic antidepressants, may cause an increase in blood pressure due to the cardiovascular effects of these substances.1
