Fluimucil - nasal drops that have pronounced properties. Many patients believe that Rinofluimucil and Fluimucil do not differ in their action and composition. But doctors pay attention that it is Rinofluimucil that is used for the nose. Despite this, patients continue to call the drug simply Fluimucil. As part of this medication, only acetylcysteine is present, it is used for parenteral administration when necessary.
Rinofluimucil contains 2 active components, it is used only topically for administration into the nasal passages. The mechanism of action of the agent is due to the presence of several ingredients. Acetylcysteine helps thin phlegm in the nasal passages. Often, viscous mucus interferes with the normal cleansing of the nasal passages and aggravates the course of the pathological condition.
Liquefying mucus can shorten the recovery period. The second active ingredient has anti-edema properties. In the composition of Fluimucil, it is absent, which is the main difference between the drugs. A remedy for the nasal passages quickly provides a therapeutic effect, unlike many medicines with similar properties.
The components of the composition almost do not penetrate the systemic circulation when used topically. Only a small fraction of the ingredients enter the bloodstream. The main amount of substances acts mainly in the area of administration, has a positive effect on the tissues of the nasal passages. In the presence of damage to the tissues, the absorption of ingredients into the blood occurs more intensively, which increases their amount in the blood and can lead to the development of systemic reactions.
Why is it used
Fluimucil (the correct name of the drug is Rinofluimucil) is used to treat pathologies of the nasal passages.
Drops are intended for introduction into the nose, are prescribed in the presence of the following indications:
- Nasal congestion against the background of the progression of a viral disease.
- Rhinitis with the formation of a purulent exudate. Such complications can occur as a result of the development of sinusitis.
- Chronic rhinitis.
- Vasomotor form of rhinitis.
- Sinusitis, accompanied by a runny nose and other complications from the upper respiratory tract.
The drug is often used to relieve bronchitis and pneumonia, since patients are often worried about rhinitis with the formation of a large amount of mucus.
The main effects of the application
The drug is used only topically when certain indications occur. The maximum duration of therapy is 7 days. Children are allowed to inject the agent into each nasal passage for 1 dose, repeat the manipulation 3 times a day.
Adults are administered 2 doses in each nasal passage, the procedure is carried out 4 times a day with equal time intervals. As a result of using the drug, the amount of mucus decreases. For several days, the patient notes a relief of breathing, a decrease in the amount of sputum and a decrease in its viscosity.
When cleansing the nasal passages, the patient feels relief, since the medication additionally contains a substance that eliminates edema. Tuaminoheptane sulfate has vasoconstrictor properties, therefore, within 5-7 minutes after application, the edema of the mucous membranes is eliminated.
When treating, patients also talk about reducing the need for vasoconstrictor drops. Their frequent use leads to atrophy of the mucous membranes, but the positive effect of the ingredients of the solution prevents the development of such complications. Improving nasal breathing helps relieve nervous system symptoms. Rhinitis is often accompanied by dizziness, headache, and decreased performance.
The recovery period is shortened, especially with a prolonged course of the pathological condition.
