In the treatment of inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity, the drug helps to reduce swelling and nasal discharge, and to restore nasal breathing.

After spraying Rankof Rino, the clinical effect is observed within a few minutes and lasts for 12 hours.

Therapeutic concentrations of oxymetazoline do not irritate the nasal mucosa and do not cause hyperemia.
