pharmachologic effect

A vasoconstrictor drug for local use in ENT practice (decongestant). Xylometazoline has an alpha-adrenomimetic effect: it causes a narrowing of the blood vessels of the nasal mucosa, eliminating edema and hyperemia of the mucous membrane of the nasopharynx. Xylometazoline also reduces concomitant hypersecretion of mucus and facilitates drainage of nasal passages blocked by secretions and, thus, improves nasal breathing with nasal congestion.
Otrivin is well tolerated by patients with sensitive mucous membranes; its effect does not interfere with mucus separation. Otrivin has a balanced pH value characteristic of the nasal cavity.
Menthol and eucalyptol contained in the preparation have a cooling effect on the nasal mucosa, giving a feeling of freshness.
In therapeutic concentrations, Otrivin does not irritate the mucous membrane, does not cause hyperemia.
The action occurs 2 minutes after application and lasts for 12 hours.
In vitro studies have shown that in humans, xylometazoline inhibits the infectious activity of rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.


When applied topically in recommended doses, it is practically not absorbed; plasma concentrations are below the detection limit.
