Tonight on WHNT NEWS 19 at 10, I’m sharing my story about an issue with nasal spray.
Like many people, I’ve had to fight a cold and congestion. But since I didn’t have the flu, I was pretty happy. I wasn’t going to bother a doctor who had seriously ill patients and families fighting the flu.
But I had been fighting some form of congestion, at times severe, since mid-December.
To fight it, I was using over-the-counter nasal spray. A lot of it.
What I didn’t know is that you can overdose on it?
The warnings are clear on the packaging what can happen if you use nasal spray beyond what is on the label.
But I ignored that and ended up in the ER.
