Are Cold Inhalers Safe?

Catching a cold is very easy with pollution all around us and due to the rapid weather change. A blocked nose not only makes you feel distracted but it causes a lot of irritation. A stuffed nose means no concentration on work and it also causes headaches and stress. People often switch medicines and gels to get instant relief from the cold.

Use of Inhalers

One of the most commonly used medicine is inhalers that help a person in getting them to relieve from a blocked or stuffy nose. These decongestant inhalers are a type of medicine that generally provide a short-term relief from such conditions. They can help comfort a person and get rid of the symptoms of disorders such as colds and flu, hay fever, sinusitis, and other allergic reactions. Nasal decongestants are applied to nasal passages to reduce the blockage and uneasiness due to allergies and the common cold. They ease the condition by reducing the swelling of the blood vessels in the nose, which in return helps open up the airways, hence removing the blockage. Although most of the people use decongestants, they're not suitable for everyone. These nasal decongestion inhalers give you instant relief, but they come with many side effects.

All the possible side-effects that may occur from all constituting ingredients of a commonly used inhaler:

inhaler for cold

A burning sensation: This is one of the most common side effects that most of the people face. Due to its high concentration of medicinal concentrates of methyl salicylate and bornyl acetate, the inhalers can cause irritation and a burning sensation in the place of its application. The burning can sometimes be very unbearable.

inhaler for cold

Nausea and Vomiting: Yes, inhalers can cause nausea. Nausea is a condition when you have a sensation that your stomach wants to empty itself, whereas vomiting is throwing up. It is the act of forcible emptying of the stomach. Due to a reaction with the blood cells of the ingredients in an inhaler, you might feel so.

inhaler for cold

High Blood Pressure: Also known as hypertension, it is the high pressure/tension that is caused in the arteries. Because inhalers are quick-relief medicines that are diluted versions of pills and directly enter the blood vessels, the effect the vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body also causing hypertension.

inhaler for cold

Drowsiness/ Dizziness: This is also one of the most common side effects that inhalers have. Dizziness is a condition where you feel lightheaded and weak and you feel like you will pass out. It can also be a condition of vertigo where you feel like everything is spinning. The affected person feels like he just got off a merry-go-round and cannot even stand properly.

Sneezing: Inhalers cause more sneezing sometimes rather than curing the congestion. It makes you eject a sudden and uncontrollable burst of air through the nose and mouth. Sneezing occurs because of the irritation of the lining (mucous membranes) of the nose or throat due to the inhaler’s chemical reaction with skin.

inhaler for cold

Rebound congestion: This is a short-term side effect that may occur sometimes. The severe congestion that occurs in addition to you already blocked nose as the medication’s effect wears off quickly but does occur when the blood vessels swell. The overuse of inhalers makes you feel more congested because once you stop using it, it just increases the content of mucus because of the flow of it due to the swelled vessels in your nose. The rebound effect can last from one to three days.
