Mode of action IMIDIN N nasal drops, xylometazoline hydrochloride, vasomotor rhinitis:

How does the ingredient in the drug work?

The active ingredient pulls the dilated veins of the mucous membrane of the nose and eyeball together again. As a result, it throttles the excessive blood flow to the olfactory and visual organs and swells the mucous membrane. Patients can breathe more freely through their nose again. Also, it doesn't run all the time. Annoying redness and non-specific irritations on the eyes disappear.

What speaks against an application?

- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients
- Drying of the nasal mucosa with crust formation (rhinitis sicca)
- Condition after an operation on the brain

- Cardiovascular diseases such as:
- High blood pressure
- Coronary heart disease (circulatory disorders of the heart muscle)
- Pheochromocytoma (adrenaline-producing tumor)
- Enlarged prostate
- Porphyria (metabolic disease)
- Metabolic diseases such as:
- Diabetes mellitus (diabetes)
- Hyperthyroidism
- Narrow-angle glaucoma

Which age group should be considered?
- Children under 6 years: The medicine must not be used.

- Pregnancy: consult your doctor. Various considerations play a role in whether and how the drug can be used during pregnancy.
- Breast-feeding: consult your doctor or pharmacist. He will examine your particular starting position and advise you accordingly as to whether and how you can continue breastfeeding.

If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use involves in the event of a contraindication.

Important information:
What should you consider?
- The medicine itself may cause a feeling of stuffy nose. If you try to eliminate this feeling with the help of this remedy, you risk permanently damaging the nasal mucosa. The effect can already occur after an application of 5-7 days.
- Be careful if you are allergic to preservatives (e.g. benzalkonium or cetylpyridinium)!
- Be careful if you are allergic to citric acid (e.g. in citrus fruits, currants, apples)!
- There may be medicines with which interactions occur. You should therefore generally tell your doctor or pharmacist about any other medicine you are already using before starting treatment with a new medicine. This also applies to medicines that you buy yourself, use only occasionally or have been using for some time.
