Therap.Cat : Oxymetazoline hydrochloride is a direct acting sympathomimetic used as a vasoconstrictor to relieve nasal congestion.
Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt form of oxymetazoline, an imidazole derivative with a direct acting sympathomimetic property. Oxymetazoline binds to and activates alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. Upon nasal or ocular administration, oxymetazoline constricts the arterioles in the nose and eye, resulting in decreased nasal and conjunctival congestion, respectively.
