Yes. The things in nasal spray won't make you sick. You could drink a whole bottle of the stuff and be unaffected. Almost all the the "stuff" in nasal spray is water. The other ingredients, depending on which brand and such, are designed for use in the nasal passages and will not harm the lungs if they are inhaled completely. They certainly won't affect your digestive tract.

Nasal spray was never intended to be swallowed. You might consider contacting your local poison control agency asap if this is so.

All outdated (expired) medication, whether it was issued by a prescription or bought over the counter, should be discarded soon after the expiration date.

Call the poison control center instead of asking for advice from random people on the internet.

There are lots of different "nasal sprays" with varying effects, and the poison control center people know what's in each of them and what you need to do (which may vary from "nothing, you just drank salt water" to "get to an emergency room immediately").

Get some Sudafed at your local pharmacy (you'll probably have to sign for it). Take it EXACTLY AS DIRECTED for two or three days. Then stop, or take half-doses for two more days. That shoud do it.

You can do a saline nasal wash (Google for directions), or just use a saline nasal spray. It helps a lot and you can use the nasal spray often, as it's not harmful. Use your thumb to put pressure on your face just below your eyes. Press as hard as you can stand too. You will feel tingling and it will hurt some. Hold it as long as you can, then when you let go, your nose should unclog.
