Xylometazoline nasal is a decongestant. It works by constricting (shrinking) blood vessels (veins and arteries) in the body. The nasal formulation acts directly on the blood vessels in the nasal tissues. Constriction of the blood vessels in the nose and sinuses leads to a decrease in congestion. Xylometazoline nasal is used to treat congestion associated with allergies, hay fever, sinus irritation, and the common cold.


has narrow-angle glaucoma or rhinitis sicca is allergic to xylometazoline or any of the ingredients of the medication Xylometazoline drops like other vasoconstrictor drops should not be used without medical supervision in patients with heart disease, hypertension, thyroid disease and hypertrophy of prostate.

Adverse reactions:

an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives); seizures; unusual behavior or hallucinations; or an irregular or fast heartbeat


Do not use xylometazoline nasal if you have taken a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) in the last 14 days. Although drug interactions between topical nasal decongestants and other medications taken by mouth are not expected, they can occur. Rarely, xylometazoline nasal may interact with the following medicines: furazolidone (Furoxone); guanethidine (Ismelin); indomethacin (Indocin); methyldopa (Aldomet); bromocriptine (Parlodel); caffeine in cola, tea, coffee, chocolate, and other products; theophylline (Theo-Dur, Theochron, Theolair, others); tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline (Elavil, Endep), doxepin (Sinequan), clomipramine (Anafranil), and nortriptyline (Pamelor), and others; and phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine), thioridazine (Mellaril), and prochlorperazine (Compazine), and others


Do not use xylometazoline nasal for longer than 3 to 5 days. Longer use could cause damage to the nasal tissue and lead to chronic congestion. If your symptoms do not improve, see your doctor. Do not use this medication in larger doses or more often than is recommended. Too much xylometazoline nasal could be harmful. Xylometazoline nasal should not be used more often than two to three times a day (every 8 to 10 hours).
