Various etiologies, such as rhinosinusitis and allergic or non-allergic rhinitis, produce nasal congestion, resulting in congestion of the venous sinusoids lining the nasal mucosa. The activation of -adrenergic receptors causes the blood vessels of the nasal mucosa to constrict, allowing nasal airflow to resume. 1A- and 2B-adrenoceptors, which are the most abundantly expressed in the human nasal mucosa, may have the most essential function in nasal mucosa vasoconstriction. With affinity for 1A-, 2A-, 2C-, 1B-, and 1D-adrenoceptors, xylometazoline is a more selective agonist at 2B-adrenoceptors. Xylometazoline reduces nasal resistance and increases nasal airflow volume during inspiration and expiration. Xylometazoline exhibited a somewhat faster onset of effect than oxymetazoline, another imidazoline nasal decongestant, but having a similar duration of action. Subjects with nasal congestion reported relief of earache and sore throat in addition to nasal decongestion in one study; it is thought that oxymetazoline mediates this effect by causing vasoconstriction of the nasal mucosa, which contains the venous sinuses; nasal decongestion allows breathing through the nose, providing relief from sore throat caused by mouth breathing, which dries and irritates the throat; and nasal decongestion allows breathing through the nose, providing relief from
