    1- If there is any discharge present , clear the nose by using a clean cloth or tissue.This is important that the discharge does not block the distribution of the medication.

    2- Hang your head over the edge and tilt your head back as far as comfortable.These actions are to provide access to nasal sinuses, and to allow medication to drain to affected sites.

    3- Breathe through your mouth to prevent the aspiration of nasal drops into trachea and lungs .

    4- Instill prescribed number of drops into the nose .

    5- Remain in this position for a few minutes to allow the medication to spread in the nose .

    6- In case of applying nasal decongestant to open the eustachian tube , it's advised to apply it twice :The 1st time to open the nasal passage and after 5 minutes to open the Eustachian tube . In such case ,the head should be tilted 55° backward and15° to the side of the affected ear.

    7- Do not apply the nasal decongestant to the both sides of the nose at the same time .TWO hours between each application is necessary so as the nasal cycle of the opening and closing is not changed
