INTRODUCTION

XYLOSON contains Xylometazoline which belongs to the group of medicines called Nasal decongestants. It is used in adults and in adolescents (aged 12 years or above) to provide relief from nasal congestion. It can also be used to provide relief from unpleasant symptoms of nasal cavity (such as nasal block, itching or discomfort) caused due to sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses) or allergic rhinitis (an allergic condition)

Always use XYLOSON as directed by your physician. It is for intranasal use only. Do not use XYLOSON for more than 7 days without consulting your doctor.

Before using XYLOSON inform your doctor if you have diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, or any heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have any other problems in nasal tract apart from nasal congestion such as chronic nasal inflammation with very dry nasal passages (rhinitis sicca or atrophic rhinitis).

Consult your doctor before using XYLOSON if you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant or breastfeeding. The most common side effects of using XYLOSON are irritation or burning sensation after application and nasal dryness. Consult your doctor if any of these side effect worsens.

USES OF XYLOSON

It is used in adults and in adolescents (aged 12 years or above) to provide relief from:

  • Nasal congestion (blocked nose)
  • Sinusitis (inflammation of the tissues lining the sinuses)
  • Allergic rhinitis (nasal congestion caused due to allergic reactions)

HOW XYLOSON WORKS

XYLOSON opens and clears the nasal passages. It works by narrowing down the blood vessels supplying the nasal passage. This helps swollen blood vessels of the nasal tract to return to its normal size which allows the air to pass through the nostrils more freely. It also reduces the excessive nasal secretions and provides temporary relief from nasal inflammation, swelling and discomfort.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Always use XYLOSON as directed by your physician. It is for intranasal use only.

For Nasal Drops: Gently instill few drops of this medicine into each nostril. Clean the dropper after application.

For Nasal Spray: Insert the spray nozzle inside the affected nostril. Press the pump to release the spray and sniff at the same time. Repeat the same to the other nostril if required. Clean the nozzle after application.

To avoid possible spread of infection, this pack should only be used by a single person. Do not use XYLOSON for more than 7 days without consulting your doctor. Discard the unused portion after 28 days of opening it.
