nostrilla similarity

Great news!!!!.....Ihave found something that works just as well!!!......I found it at Walgreens and it' s 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.

If anyone is looking for more information about Afrin spray, you can follow the link below: I hope this helps!
