We read with great interest the article titled “Review of Intranasally Administered Medications for Use in the Emergency Department” by Bailey et al. (
1). The authors have covered in detail all the medications, indications, and doses of intranasally used medications in great depth. We would like to add one more drug that can be given transnasally for headache: lidocaine.
