Composition of the drug
Spray Nasivin (Germany) belongs to the group of vasoconstrictor drugs of local action, the active substance in which is oxymetazoline hydrochloride. The medicine is a clear solution, colorless or slightly yellowish, placed in a plastic bottle with a spray. Nasivin, the composition of which is supplemented with auxiliary components, which is necessary to preserve the physicochemical and microbiological properties of the drug, also includes purified water and such compounds:
citric acid monohydrate;
sodium citrate dihydrate;
Oxymetazoline hydrochloride, due to which the therapeutic effect of the spray is ensured, is contained in the drug at a concentration of 0.05%. When it enters the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity, it acts on the adrenaline receptors located in it. As a result of this, there is a narrowing of blood vessels at the site of exposure, a decrease in mucus production, a decrease in swelling of the mucous tissues of the upper respiratory tract and easier breathing through the nose.
In addition, it was found that oxymetazoline hydrochloride has antiviral, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating and antioxidant properties, so that uncomfortable symptoms can be eliminated more quickly with a number of pathologies. The effect of the drug begins approximately 15 minutes after injection, the duration of the effect is about 8-12 hours. Systemic absorption of the drug is negligible, so its concentration in the blood does not affect other parts of the body.
Indications for use
We list what indications for use Nasivin according to the instructions:
acute respiratory infections accompanied by a runny nose;
rhinitis of allergic etiology;
inflammation of the sinuses;
In addition, the drug is recommended for use at the preparatory stage of diagnostic procedures in the nasal passages to eliminate and prevent swelling. In childhood, Nasivin can be used for adenoids as part of the complex treatment of pathologically enlarged pharyngeal tonsils and to quickly facilitate nasal breathing. Often prescribed Nasivin for laryngitis, tracheitis, tonsillitis and other lesions of the upper respiratory tract, in which there is a runny nose, drainage of mucus on the back wall of the nasopharynx.
It is unacceptable to use the medication in question in such cases:
rhinitis, accompanied by atrophic processes in the nose;

Many are worried about whether Nasivin can be used during pregnancy and lactation. You should know that Nasivin spray during pregnancy can be used only on the recommendation of a doctor, who, having assessed the condition of the woman, will confirm the advisability of such treatment. Nasivin during breastfeeding, like other vasoconstrictors, is also used with caution, only in case of urgent need. Other cases in which the drug is used carefully under medical supervision are:
increased intraocular pressure;
severe forms of cardiovascular pathologies (including arterial hypertension, angina pectoris);
simultaneous administration of drugs that provoke an increase in pressure.
It is important to know how to spray Nasivin Spray correctly, in what quantity. When using the drug Nasivin, the dosage is provided by the dispenser in the vial, one click on which is equal to one dosage dose. The solution is administered one injection into each nostril twice or thrice a day.
To obtain a positive effect, several recommendations should be followed when using Nasivin Spray:
Before injection, it is necessary to clean the nasal passages, preferably with saline.
Shake the vial with the drug.
Keeping your head straight, spray the solution alternately into each nasal passage, pressing the free nostril with your finger to the nasal septum. Injection is made by abruptly pressing the bottle in an upright position.
Take a deep breath with your nose (if possible) so that the injected drug penetrates deeper.
The next 2-3 minutes should be spent at rest, not to blow your nose.
Nasivin for nasal congestion
The most common symptom in which this vasoconstrictor spray is used is nasal congestion, which may or may not be accompanied by mucus secretions. Regardless of the causes of nasal congestion, Nasivin helps with allergies (seasonal and year-round), viral and bacterial respiratory infections of the nasal cavity and sinuses, with rhinitis associated with impaired blood vessel tone. Due to the narrowing of the vessels located in the mucous membrane, the spray quickly restores breathing without overdrying and without irritating the tissue.
Nasivin with a runny nose
Nasivin spray can become an emergency aid in case of severe cold, when the discharge literally “flows in a stream”. By reducing blood flow in the vessels of the nasal mucosa, mucus production is reduced, and a temporary relief of the condition occurs. It should be understood that in the case of an infectious rhinitis, the produced mucus helps to cope with the pathogen, because it contains special protective substances, therefore it is advisable to use this drug only if absolutely necessary.
Nasivin has the benefit of sinusitis and other types of sinusitis, when the paranasal sinuses are blocked due to swelling of the connective anastomoses, and the outflow of mucus and pus from them becomes impossible. Spraying the spray allows the drug to penetrate deep into the nasal cavity, reach these areas and eliminate swelling. After a few minutes, when Nasivin acts, it is recommended to rinse the nasal passages and sinuses with saline.
Nasivin for otitis media
In case of inflammation of the middle ear, which is often a complication of rhinitis, there is swelling of the Eustachian tube connecting the tympanic cavity of the ear with the nasopharynx. Because of this, mucous and purulent discharge begins to accumulate inside the ear, which causes pain in the ear, a sensation of noise, stuffiness, and hearing impairment. Nasivin spray injected through the nose, the dosage of which is the same as in other cases with this pathology, helps to restore the patency of the tube and ventilation of the ear.
How much can Nasivin be used?
Before using Nasivin, you should carefully read the recommendations given in the instructions. The duration of treatment with this drug is often 3-5 days, but should not exceed a period of more than a week. If you neglect this rule, it is possible to develop addiction to the medication with a number of side effects, which is incredibly difficult to cope with.
We list which side effects Nasivin is able to exhibit (often they occur when the instructions for use are not followed):
dryness, burning of the nasal mucosa;
atrophy of the nasal mucosa;
increase in blood pressure.
