nostrilla similarity
Great news!!!!.....Ihave found something that works just as well!!!......I found it at Walgreens and it' s cheaper......it is a Walgreens brand called ANEFRIN Nasal Spray extra moisturizing 12 hour pump mist!!......since Nostrillahas been pulled I have tried about 10 different brands and THIS ONE WORKS!!!......and is cheaper!!!!......Good Luck!! ## I have had great results from using Afrin Nasal Spray with a stuffy nose from being sick. Clears it up almost instantly! The active ingredient in Anefrin and Afrin is Oxymetazoline hydrochloride 0.05%, so I'm sure they are just different brands; but it works wonders. If anyone is looking for more information about Afrin spray, you can follow the link below: I hope this helps!

Nostrilla
can't find were can i get it . ## Unfortunately, there has been a recall on the most commonly sold version of this product, due to possible contamination, so it is currently out of stock in most places, until the company solves the problem and manufactures a new supply. It contains the active ingredient Oxymetazoline and it is used in several similar products that you might want to try, as an alternative, until there is a new supply of Nostrilla on the shelves. They are listed as being Afrin, Sudafed OM, Dristan, Vicks Sinex and Mucinex Full Force. Are there any other questions or comments?
