Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride


The medication oxymetazoline hydrochloride is used to treat nasal congestion caused by acute or chronic rhinitis, the common cold, sinusitis, upper respiratory allergies, epistaxis, and hay fever. It is also utilized as a nasal decongestant in the treatment of otitis media.


Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride is a sympathomimetic amine that is an imidazoline derivative. It acts as a direct agonist on -adrenoceptors but has no effect on -adrenoceptors. When applied topically to the nasal mucosa, it causes fast and long-acting vasoconstriction of the arterioles, lowering blood flow and decreasing mucosal edema. This improves the potency of the airway and the drainage of the nasal sinuses.
