What is drug induced rhinitis?

Also known as rebound rhinitis. This condition is caused by overuse of nose-drops, which are often prescribed for stuffy nose. If used for too long, the nose becomes "dependent" on the nose-drops, and becomes congested once the nose-drops are stopped.

Symptoms of drug induced rhinitis

  • Continuous usage of nose drops for at least 1 month with reducing effectiveness

  • Blocked nose

  • Sneezing

  • Nasal voice

  • Runny nose

Questions your doctor may ask to check for drug induced rhinitis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose drug induced rhinitis

  • Have you ever used a nasal spray and found it less effective after using for more than 1 month?

  • Do you have nasal congestion?

  • Do you sneeze?

  • Are you having nasal voice, currently?

  • Do you have a runny nose?

Treatment for drug induced rhinitis
