 Nasal Spray Addiction

I recently found out that a good friend of mine is {*filter*}ed to using
nasal sprays.  Could someone provide me with pointers to some general
information on this?  I'm concerned that this could lead to some kind
of long-term disfunction, if damage has not been already done.

If you have archived articles from past discussions, I'd appreciate
receiving copies via e-mail than burden the network.  Many thanks!

A probably unrelated experience:

I used to drive a forklift for a living (yes, it's been a checkered
career (-: ).  I noticed at the time that many of the people I worked with
made frequent use of nasal inhalers.  This puzzled me somewhat -- I
figured they couldn't _all_ have colds _all_ the time.  Naive soul that I
was, it took me some weeks to realize the contents of the inhalers had
nothing to do with their labels.  {*filter*} was the cause of the constant
sniffing. )-:

You can avoid "nasal spray {*filter*}ion" (I presume by this you mean
dependence upon the spray for clearing the nose) by using the spray in
only one nostril per day.  E.g. on monday clear only the right, on
tuesday clear only the left, etc.  You only need one nostril to breath
and, at least when a cold is starting up, giving each nostril a day's
break between being inflicted with spray seems to be enough to prevent
side effects from building up.  Don't know if this would help with
someone already dependent on the stuff.

My father was treated for nasal spray {*filter*}ion.  The doctor told him to buy a
certain brand of nasal spray (I can't remember the brand now) which comes
in different strengths.  I think it's a mixture of spray and saline
solution and the percentages are clearly marked on the packages.
He used them in decreasing strengths for a certain number of weeks on
each one until he was no longer dependent on them to breathe.  As far
as I know, he hasn't gone back to using them.  He had been dependent on
them for as long as I could remember, something like 25 years.
