How is Imigran Nasal Spray taken?
Each Imigran Nasal Spray contains one single dose of the medicine. Each spray comes in three parts: the nozzle (which you insert into your nostril), the finger-grip (which you grip onto with your thumb when using the spray) and a blue plunger (which you press to release the whole dose of spray into your nostril).
Only press the plunger once you have the nozzle inserted comfortably into your nostril and are ready, with a finger pressed firmly on the side of your other nostril to block it. If you have a cold or a blocked nose, make sure to blow your nose properly before you use the spray.
Breathe out gently through your mouth, holding your head back and closing your mouth. Start to breathe in gently through your nose and, as you breathe in, press the blue plunger slowly but firmly with your thumb and release the full dose of spray into your nose. Once finished, remove the spray from your nostril and dispose of it.
Your nose may feel slightly wet and you might get a funny taste in your mouth for a while after using the spray. This is normal and does not mean the spray has not worked.
