Whether it is medical drug addiction, over the counter drug addiction, or recreational drug addiction – breaking the stronghold is essential to living a healthy and prosperous life. All drugs have side effects. Medically prescribed drugs have many positive benefits to help you better function in life, yet these drugs can also come with a myriad of adverse side effects. One of the most well-researched drug usages is nasal decongestant sprays. Afrin, other over-the-counter nasal sprays, and even medically prescribed nasal sprays to treat nasal obstruction due to sinusitis, upper respiratory infections, and allergies are known to have harmful side effects over long uses.
Nasal sprays use certain active ingredients that restrict blood vessels in the nose. While these nasal sprays can help with congested or stuffy noses, when used for long durations it can result in an addiction to the ingredients. As with any type of addiction, the body requires an increased dosage of nasal spray ingredients to maintain the results. Many users of nasal nose sprays obtain rhinitis medicamentosa, a physical addiction to nasal spray. This addiction causes users the need to continue using a nasal spray to breathe through their nose. Over time, the continued use restricts the blood flow in the nose and causes tissue damage which can lead to saddle nose deformities.
