Quatran Xylo Pharmacodynamics
Xylometazoline belongs to the group of local vasoconstrictors (decongestants) with alpha-adrenomimetic effect, causes narrowing of blood vessels of nasal mucosa, removing edema and hyperemia. It relieves nasal breathing in rhinitis. The action of the drug starts within a few minutes after application and lasts for 12 hours.
Sea water, which is included as an auxiliary component, helps to maintain normal physiological state of the nasal mucosa, which reduces the symptoms of irritation and dryness caused by prolonged use of xylometazoline.
