Answer

Anticholinergic nasal sprays and oral inhalers

An increase of local production of acetylcholine may cause tissue reaction in the case of hypersensitivity. This is most common in IgE-mediated hypersensitivity. Anticholinergic agents may be useful for allergic rhinitis or allergic asthma.

Ipratropium bromide (Atrovent)

Ipratropium bromide is available as a 0.03% (21 mcg per spray) or 0.06% (42 mcg per spray) nasal spray. It is suitable for allergic rhinitis. It is also available as an oral inhaler (18 mcg per actuation) indicated for moderate persistent or severe persistent asthma.
