Pharmacological action

Xylometazoline has an alpha-adrenergic effect: it causes narrowing of the blood vessels of the nasal mucosa, eliminating edema and hyperemia of the nasopharynx mucosa. 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 mucosa, its effect does not interfere with the separation of mucus. 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, the drug does not irritate the mucous membrane, does not cause hyperemia.

Action occurs 2 minutes after administration and lasts for 12 hours.

In vitro studies have shown that xylometazoline in humans suppresses the infectious activity of rhinovirus that causes the common cold.
