Xylometazoline hydrochloride (hcl), also spelled xylomethazoline, is most frequently used as a topical treatment in the nasal passages to alleviate congestion. It is typically an over-the-counter product and formulas for both adults and children are readily available in most areas.

It is possible to buy Xylometazoline Hcl under a wide range of brand names, largely depending on location. The most widely-recognized brand is probably Otrivin. It is typically sold as a nasal spray or nasal drops, though oral capsules are also sometimes used in less-commonly treated conditions.

Note that dosage differs depending on age. Be sure to buy Xylometazoline Hcl in a pediatric formula for use on patients under 12 years old, while adults should buy Xylometazoline Hcl in an adult formula.

Getting the Most from Xylometazoline Hcl

It is important to note that while this product is highly effective, tolerance to the medication builds quickly and overuse can result in rebound congestion. Excessive overuse may lead to long-term tissue damage in the nose. In general, use should not exceed 3 to 5 consecutive days, and the medication should not be administered more than twice in 24 hours. Instructions may vary according to specific brands and dosage strengths, however; always check the label of the particular product being used.

The medication works by constricting nasal blood vessels which may be inflamed in response to infection or exposure to allergens, ultimately reducing swelling and mucous production for clear, unblocked nasal passages. The medication works quickly, with significant relief usually experienced within a few minutes of administration. Effects last around 8 to 10 hours.

As a decongestant, Xylometazoline Hcl is effective regardless of the cause of the nasal congestion. It is often used to treat congestion caused by:

  • Colds or flu
  • Sinusitis
  • Hay fever
  • Other allergies

Whether using nasal sprays or drops, it's important to avoid contamination. Wash hands before handling the medication and avoid letting the applicator tip or dropper come into contact with other surfaces. Do not share applictors or droppers; doing so will spread bacteria and other contaminants.

If congestion worsens during treatment or is not resolved after 3 to 5 days of use, alternative options should be considered.

Precautions & Side Effects

Some individuals should avoid using Xylometazoline Hcl without explicit doctor approval, as the risk of potentially serious side effects are significantly increased. This includes patients who have a history of:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Closed angle glaucoma
  • Adrenal gland issues
  • Recent use of MAOIs (within 14 days)

Additionally those who have recently had neurosurgery, nasal surgery, and those who have had the pituitary gland removed should not use this product.

Side effects are typically mild and less irritating than congestion. Most side effects, if experienced at all, pass quickly after administration. Common side effects include:

  • Mild stinging or burning sensation in nasal passages or back of throat during or shortly after administration
  • Mild irritation, itching or soreness of nasal passages or back of throat
  • Headache
  • Mild nausea

Some children experience restlessness and/or difficulty sleep when using Xylometazoline Hcl. Very rarely small children may experience hallucinations. Discontinue use if these side effects are noticed.
