Nasal spray without preservatives

Preservatives such as benzalkonium chloride are commonly used in nasal sprays, although they can cause significant damage to the sensitive lining of the nose.

Nasal Spray ratiopharm ® is a remedy for use in the nose (rhinological agent) and contains the alpha sympathomimetic xylometazoline.

Xylometazoline has vasoconstrictive properties and thereby causes a decongestion of the mucous membrane.

Nasal Spray ratiopharm ® is applied

  • to reduce swelling of the nasal mucosa (short-term treatment) for colds, runny colds that occur in attacks (vasomotor rhinitis) or allergic colds (allergic rhinitis)
  • to facilitate the drainage of secretions in the case of inflammation of the paranasal sinuses and catarrh of the tube middle ear in connection with a cold.

Nasal Spray ratiopharm ® is intended for adults and school children

Nasal Spray ratiopharm ® must not be applied

  • if you are allergic to xylometazoline or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
  • if you suffer from a certain form of chronic cold (rhinitis sicca, dry inflammation of the nasal mucosa with crusting).
  • after surgical removal of the pituitary gland through the nose (transsphenoidal hypophysectomy) or other surgical procedures that expose the meninges.
  • in infants, toddlers and children under 6 years of age.

  • if you suffer from increased pressure in the eye, especially angle-closure glaucoma.
  • if you have a heart condition (e.g. long QT syndrome).
  • if you suffer from severe cardiovascular diseases (e.g. coronary artery disease [CHD], high blood pressure).

  • if you have metabolic disorders such as B. hyperthyroidism (hyperthyroidism) or diabetes (diabetes mellitus).
  • if you have an enlarged prostate.

The long-term use of cold medicines that reduce swelling of the mucous membrane can lead to chronic swelling and ultimately to atrophy of the nasal mucosa.
