Sanorin Pharmacological properties
Naphazoline is a drug that stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and acts on -adrenoceptors, has minimal effect on β-adrenoceptors. Due to the vasoconstrictive effect, edema, hyperemia, and exudation are reduced, which facilitates nasal breathing in rhinitis. Nafazolin promotes the opening and expansion of the outlet ducts of the paranasal sinuses and Eustachian tubes, which improves the outflow of secretions and prevents the deposition of bacteria.
The therapeutic effect of intranasal use occurs within 5 minutes and lasts 4‒6 hours.
