Summary

This active vs active comparative trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of incremental doses of atropine in combination with pseudoephedrine 120 mg/chlorpheniramine 8 mg in adult patients with a history of seasonal allergic rhinitis. Hypotheses are defined by total nasal symptom scores (TNSS) recorded by subjects in diaries where efficacy will be established by statistical significance where p < 0.05.

Documented evidence of acute or significant chronic sinusitis, as determined by the individual investigator 5. Has a history of allergic reaction to or known sensitivity to the active or inactive ingredients in the investigational products used in this study 6. Chronic use of concomitant medications (e.g., tricyclic antidepressants) that would affect assessment of the effectiveness of the study medication 7. Rhinitis medicamentosa 8.
