The intranasal route of administration of drugs provides direct access to the systemic circulation and offers several other advantages, such as faster absorption of drugs, faster spreading of the drug in the blood, and potential of direct drug delivery to the brain through olfactory nerves. Intranasal drug delivery is a minimally invasive form of administration of drugs and offers a needleless and systematic solution to drug delivery. According to Binghamton University, State University at New York, Narcan (naloxone), nasal spray, was considered as the easiest product to deliver in August 2018 as drug delivery via nasal route lacks lagging as in the case of the oral route of administration.
