Details

Introduction

Xylometazoline belongs to a medication class of nasal decongestants. It is applied through the nose, either as a spray or as drops. It is used to treat stuffy nose caused by allergies, sinusitis, or the common cold. It constricts the blood vessels of the nose, which in a dilated condition, causes congestion of the nose.

Use

Xylometazoline nasal spray is indicated to relieve nasal congestion due to the common cold, hay fever, upper respiratory tract infection, or sinus infection. It also comforts when experiencing nasal discomfort caused by dryness of the nasal mucosa.

This spray is a decongestant. It works by constricting the congested blood vessels of the nose, which swells during an infection or allergy. This results in the relief of congestion (stuffy feeling) and improved breathing.

It mimics the form of adrenaline and binds to alpha-adrenergic receptors of the nasal mucosa. It mimics the sympathomimetic effects of adrenaline by causing vaso-constriction of the vessels.

Dosage and administration

Use the spray exactly as directed by the doctor.

Sit down and place the tip of the spray into one of the nostril. Use the finger of the opposite hand to close the other nostril. Breathe in gently and release a spray of the medicine into the nose. Do not blow the nose for at least 10 minutes after a spray. When using more than one spray dose, wait for about a minute between consecutive sprays. After using the spray, rinse the tip of the spray with warm water and wipe it with a clean tissue before reusing it.

Do not continue to use the drug if the symptoms do not show any relief in 5 days.

Warning

  • Inform the doctor before being prescribed this medication about any allergy to this drug or to any other substances.
  • Discuss your medical history with the doctor, particularly if there is any history of hyperthyroidism, hypertension, cardiac problems, any liver or kidney disorders.
  • Do not take more than the prescribed dose in a day since this may lead to reduced effectiveness of the drug. This may lead to a reduction in the number of receptors in the nose and if the drug is withdrawn suddenly, then there might be extreme symptoms of nasal congestion. This condition is called as rhinitis medicamentosa.
  • Pregnant women and breast feeding mothers are to use this medication only if it has been prescribed by the doctor.
  • Although rare but in case of any adverse reactions like dizziness, mood changes, headaches, tremors, or any hypersensitivity reactions, the patient is advised to consult the doctor immediately and discontinue the use of the drug.
