What are nasal preparations?
In respect to this, what is intranasal use?
Intranasal drug administration has a long tradition and was and is still used for medical as well as recreational purposes. The most common use is for treatment of local symptoms e.g. nasal congestion in the course of a common rhinitis or inflammation linked to allergic rhinitis.
One may also ask, how are intranasal medications administered? They are sprayed into the nostrils, usually to produce a local effect directly inside the nose. Some nasal sprays are used to administer medicine that acts on other parts of the body. In these cases the medicine is taken into the bloodstream from the lining of the nose, which has many blood vessels.
People also ask, which drug is used by nasal route?
Steroids, antiasthma medications such as salbutamol, ipratropium, montelukast and a large number of inhalational anaesthetic agents are being used commonly. The recent developments in intranasal drug delivery systems are prodigious.
Does Nasal Spray enter the bloodstream?
Nasal sprays are used to deliver medications into your nostrils. The lining of your nose is rich in blood vessels, which means it can easily absorb medications into your bloodstream.
