Is Nasodren effective?
Nasodren is a product indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis, postoperative care after sinonasal surgery, and otitis media with effusion.
Its active ingredient are saponins, a cyclamen extract that gives a fast relief from rhinosinusitis symptoms, like nasal blockage, obstruction, congestion or nasal discharge.
Nasodren is different because it has a unique and physiologic mechanism of action that produces a reflex secretion to clean and drain the nose and sinuses from accumulated mucus.
Nasodren acts activating the physiological defense mechanisms of the upper airways (increased mucus secretion, greater ciliary cleansing activity and increased arterial blood flow) that are impaired during rhinosinusitis. Nasodren stimulates the trigeminal nerve endings of the nasal mucosa, which leads to a seromucus discharge, reduction of the inflammation of the mucosa and opening of the ostiums (the passages that communicate the sinuses to the nasal cavity), and therefore cleaning sinuses and nasal cavity.
Nasodren is a very safe product since it is not absorbed and therefore do not reach bloodstream and consequently does not produce systemic side effects (i.e. does not reach the liver, the kidneys or any other organ) unlike, for instance, antibiotics or steroids.
Nasodren can be used in monotherapy or in combination with other products used for the treatment of rhinosinusitis (antibiotics, steroids, decongestants, etc.).
