INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIALIST.

Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the print edition of 2007.

PHARMACHOLOGIC EFFECT

Antiseptic preparation for intraconjunctival administration.
The sulphate and boric acid, which are part of the zinc preparation, have antiseptic and astringent effect.
Diphenhydramine - an antihistamine drug, blocks the release of mediators of permeability (bradykinin, serotonin, kallikrein and its derivatives), providing a clear anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effect.
In addition, diphenhydramine has a local anesthetic effect.
Hypromellose (the main component of the "artificial tear") is a protector of the epithelium of the cornea, has a lubricating and softening effect, has a high viscosity, which increases the duration of contact of the solution with the cornea.
The refractive index of the solution is similar to natural tears. Promotes restoration, stability and reproduction of the optical characteristics of the tear film.
Polyethylene oxide 4000 increases the residence time of the active components of the drug in the conjunctival cavity and improves the tolerance of the preparation.
