Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

For oxymetazoline hydrochloride, which is the active substance of Nazol, pronounced adrenomimetic activity is characteristic. The action of the drug is expressed in the stimulation of alpha-adrenergic receptors located in the smooth muscles of the vessels. The effect of oxymetazoline on these receptors leads to vasoconstriction and a decrease in the permeability of their walls. Reducing blood flow relieves swelling of the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract, providing relief of nasal breathing and opening of the mouths of the Eustachian tubes and paranasal sinuses.

The auxiliary components of the spray eliminate irritation of the mucous membrane and moisturize it. The vasoconstrictor effect of the drug appears after 10 minutes, and the decongestant effect is prolonged and lasts about 10-12 hours.

After the injection of Nazol, oxymetazoline is rapidly absorbed from the nasal mucosa. The half-life is 5-8 days. The active component of the drug is excreted in the urine and feces.
