Oxymetazoline nasal drops could not sleep

Recently bought Oxymetazoline nasal spray. I have COPD emphysema. I spent the whole night coughing with no sleep. Has anyone heard of this happening? Thank you ## Yes, it has been known to cause that, and a product warning instructs you to consult your doctor if this occurs, and the nasal spray doesn't alleviate your symptoms. Other side effects of Oxymetazoline may include funny taste, runny nose, burning nose. Are you on any other medications? Did you try sleeping with your head slightly elevated?

oxymetazoline eye drops

I think they are selling Visine LR on the internet, but it is very expensive. It is the only gtts that work for me. Have been searching for it for two months. Some of the blogs here have helped with suggestions. ## Hi Neil, Thanks for the heads up. I've also heard about some remaining stocks of Visine LR being available online, but are being sold for much more than most individuals are willing to pay. In light of that, a couple related discussion threads on here have offered a number of alternatives that you or other visitors may be interested in reading more about: 1).
