Rhinopro is a new and effective approach for treating cold. The repeated administration of nasal drops is unnecessary when Rhinopro is taken in the morning and evening; Rhinopro ensures relief from the strenuous symptoms of cold such as increased nasal secretion, tumefaction on the mucous tissues of nose and sinuses, impairment of respiration, burning of the eyes and headache.

When taken orally, phenylephrine have a decongesting effect. It therefore functions as an oral nasal decongestant with minimal central nervous system (CNS) stimulation. Carbinoxamine is a highly effective antihistaminic and antiallergic agent which reduces the increased mucous secretion and eliminates the causes of allergic symptoms at the mucous tissues. The depot form of the drug ensures a long persistent effect so that the administration of Rhinopro every morning and evening is sufficient.

Side Effects

Gastrointestinal complaints, nausea, dryness of the mouth, vomiting, heart burn, and anorexia, palpitations, blood pressure increase and arrhythmia.

Disturbances of the central nervous system, tiredness, vertigo, feeling of weakness, sleep disturbances, nervousness, agitation, trembling, and headache may occur in rare cases. In elderly patients states of central agitation may occur in case of over dosage. Allergic hypersensitivity reactions, impaired vision or induction of narrow-angle glaucoma, feeling of anginal pain, and complaints in micturition were observed. Changes in the blood picture are noticed very rarely.
