DESCRIPTION::
Xylometazoline is an imidazole derivative which is designed to mimic the molecular shape of adrenaline. Xylometazoline is a drug which is used as a topical nasal decongestant. It is applied directly into the nose, either as a spray or as drops.
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION::
Xylometazoline works by acting on alpha receptors that are found in the walls of blood vessels in the linings of the nasal passages and sinuses. It causes these blood vessels to contract and narrow, thereby decreasing blood flow into the linings of the nose and sinuses. This reduces swelling and the feeling of congestion. It also reduces the production of mucus, helping to relieve a blocked nose.
 
INDICATIONS:
Nasal congestion associated with colds, flu, sinusitis and nasal allergies (allergic rhinitis).
 
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Hypersensitivity, narrow angle glaucoma, atrophic rhinitis.
 
SIDE EFFECTS:
Rebound congestion, oropharyngeal dryness, insomnia, sneezing, blurred vision.
 
ADMINISTRATION:
Instill the stated dose into each nostril with the head tilted backwards. Do not use for more than 7days as rebound effect or tolerance to the medication may occur.
