The drug is used to treat diseases of the nasal cavity in children. It has a pronounced anti-edematous and phlegm-thinning effect. The active components of the drug are acetylcysteine and tuaminoheptane sulfate.
Acetylcysteine effectively reduces the viscosity of sputum. It has a detoxifying, expectorant effect. The principle of action lies in the ability of the substance to affect the glycoproteins of mucus, disrupting their disulfide bond, which leads to its liquefaction. Also, the substance inhibits the activity of leukocytes (their chemotaxis), as a result of which the inflammatory process slows down.
Tuaminoheptane sulfate is an adrenomimetic agent that effectively reduces swelling, hyperemia of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx, constricts blood vessels.
