1. Shake the bottle

2. Test the spray. Press a few times to see if the spray works properly.

3. The ‘X’ mark. This is important. If you’re using your right hand to spray, you should spray it in your left nose and if you’re using your left hand, spray it into your right nose.

4. Your aim is to spray at the Maxillary Sinus or the part which is beside your nose. To do that, tilt the spray towards your eye and then spray. Spraying in an upright position will cause the medication to flow to your throat. 

5. Also, don’t tilt your head upwards when spraying.
