How should I take propylhexedrine?

Propylhexadrine should be used exactly as directed on the package label. Propylhexedrine is a decongestant medication that helps clear the airways and reduce sinus pressure. It is available in the form of a vapor inhaler only. Do not share this medication with other people and avoid contaminating the tip of the inhaler. You can help improve the medication's effectiveness by warming the inhaler in your hands before use. Hold your head straight and inhale the medication through each nostril. Wait three to five minutes before blowing your nose. Adults and children 12 years of age or older should not take more than two inhalations (0.4mg.-0.5mg.) every two hours. Contact your doctor if symptoms do not improve within three days.
