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.
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.
