Welcome to HealthCareMagic,
Otrinoz nasal drops contains xylometazoline, while Nasoclear Nasal drops contains sodium chloride solution. Instead of Otrinoz N. Drops you should use Otrinoz Paediatric Nasal drops. You can use Nasoclear Nasal drops also. It will keep nostrils decongested for easy breathing. Mucolite is to make sputum thin for easy expectoration. Medicines prescribed are few only. There is only one antibiotic (azithral), and Otrinoz & mucolite seems to be necessary for symptomatic relief.
Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.
With good wishes,
Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma
