You are suffering from allergic rhinitis for which otrivin is not the answer. You should take flixonase or duonase nasal spray, Montair and an antiallergic like levocetrizine or allegra. You may have to take them for atleast 6 to 8 weeks. In any case these medicines have very little side effects and at times patients have to take them regularly for much longer periods to remain symtom free.
