There are specific as well as general uses of a drug or medicine. A medicine can be used to prevent a disease, treat a disease over a period or cure a disease. It can also be used to treat the particular symptom of the disease. The drug use depends on the form the patient takes it. It may be more useful in injection form or sometimes in tablet form.

This helps relieve stuffiness and makes breathing easier.

This product contains a purified gentle salt solution (also called saline or sodium chloride solution). It does not contain any medication.
