December Pharmacist's Pick - Nasal Four Spray

December Pick - Nasal Spray

Our Recommendation

As we enter the holiday season, it seems cold season is in full effect. Do you feel like you can’t breathe through your nostrils? If so, check out your Hy-Vee pharmacist’s pick of the month, our generic Hy-Vee Nasal Four Nasal Spray (compare to Sinex).

How Can It Help?

Hy-Vee Nasal Four Nasal Spray contains 1% phenylephrine HCL, a decongestant which helps open up the nasal passages and allows easier breathing and relief of nasal congestion.

How Should I Use It?

Shake the bottle well before each use. When using the spray, keep your head in an upright position, insert the tip of the nasal spray into the nostril, and push down firmly on the atomizer while inhaling slightly through the nostrils. For dosing instructions, see the chart below.

Age Dosing
Adults and children 12 years and older Use 2 to 3 sprays in each nostril up to every 4 hours as needed
Children under 12 years old Do not use
