is it ok to sparingly use Dristan for an elongated period of time?
Geneviève Duperron Pharmacist owner affiliated with Familiprix

When you use Dristan more than 3 to 5 days in a row, even once a day, you can become addicted to the product.  To reduce the utilisation, you can stop one nostril at the time and maybe another product containing cortisone to help alleviate congestion symptoms

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
