Suggest ways to wean off Afrin
reduce frequency or consult doctor for prescription of Steroid nasal spray
Thanks for writing to us.
You are using afrin since one week only. So there is no severe problem will be there. You can reduce frequency gradually(every 5-6 hours next day every 7-8 hours and so on up to every 12 hours and stop) and stopped the same without much discomfort.
For sleep you can use measures called 'Sleep Hygiene' , please find the same in below link:
In any case if you feel much discomfort while reducing frequency, you should consult doctor for prescription of steroids like prednisone in form of oral and nasal spray according to need. You can stop them gradually under medical supervision.
Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
