Rhinitis medicamentosa (RM) is a drug-induced, non-allergic form of rhinitis that is associated with prolonged use of topical vasoconstrictors, i.e. nasal decongestants. Nasal stuffiness is caused by rebound swelling of the mucosa when the decongestive effect of the drug has disappeared. To alleviate this symptom, patients gradually start using larger doses of the vasoconstrictor more frequently. In many cases, the patient is unaware of the condition, thus entering a vicious circle of self-treatment. Management of RM requires withdrawal of topical decongestants to allow the damaged nasal mucosa to recover, followed by treatment of the underlying nasal disease⁷.
