Afrin Extro instruction for use

Nasal Spray Afrin Extro-anticongestive, alpha-adrenomimetic drug.
Alpha-adrenostimulating agent for topical application. Has vasoconstrictive effect. Oxymetazoline causes narrowing of the vessels of the mucous membranes of the nose, paranasal sinus and eustachian tube, which leads to a decrease in their edema and the release of nasal breathing in allergic and / or infectious inflammatory rhinitis (runny nose).
Due to the presence of auxiliary substances in the medicinal product (MCC, carmellose sodium and povidone K29-32), Afrin exstra nasal spray does not flow out of the nose and does not drain into the throat, tk. after injection into the nasal passages, the spray becomes more viscous and retained on the mucous membranes of the nose more effectively than the standard aqueous solution.
On the basis of published clinical studies, the intranasal administration of an aromatic composition similar to that of a medicament containing levomenthol (also known as menthol), cineole (also known as eucalyptus) and camphor, causes a temporary sensation of cooling the nasal mucosa due to interaction with the cold trigeminal receptors nerve on the surface of the mucous membrane.
According to clinical studies, the drug begins to act for 1 minute, and the effect lasts up to 12 hours.


When used as a nasal spray, oxymetazoline is practically not detected in the blood plasma.
