How should I use a saline nasal mist?

Saline nasal mists come as nasal sprays. Clear your nasal passages as much as possible before using your saline nasal mist by blowing your nose. Your nasal passages will receive this medication more readily when you tilt your head back and pinch one nostril closed before spraying the medication into the other, as you breathe in through your nose. If you are using another nasal spray, wait two minutes after taking your saline nasal mist before taking the other.
