Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2013.


Xylometazoline is related to a group of local vasoconstrictors (decongestants) with alpha-adrenomimetic activity, causes narrowing of the blood vessels of the nasal mucosa, restores the nasal passages, facilitates nasal breathing.
The drug usually comes in a few minutes after its application and lasts up to 10 hours.
Dexpanthenol is a vitamin B group - a derivative of pantothenic acid.
Dexpanthenol is converted in the body into pantothenic acid, which is an integral part of coenzyme A and participates in the processes of acetylation, carbohydrate and fat metabolism, in the synthesis of acetylcholine, corticosteroids, porphyrins; stimulates the regeneration of the skin, mucous membranes, normalizes cellular metabolism, accelerates mitosis and increases the strength of collagen fibers. ' It has a regenerating, metabolic and weak anti-inflammatory effect.

Xylometazoline with local application is practically not absorbed, plasma concentrations are so small that they can not be determined by modern analytical methods.

Dexpanthenol, when applied topically, is rapidly absorbed, skin and converted to pantothenic acid, binds to plasma proteins (mainly with beta-globulin and albumin).Its concentration in the blood is 0.5-1 mg / l, in the blood serum - 100 μg / l.
Pantothenic acid does not undergo metabolism in the body (except for inclusion in Ko-A), is excreted unchanged.
