Unless otherwise prescribed for children from 2 to 6 years of age, 1 injection of 0.05% Olint in each nostril is administered if necessary. The dosage depends on the individual sensitivity of the patient and the clinical effect.
Olint 0.05% nasal spray should not be applied for more than 5 to 7 days, unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor.
