Is sanorin safe for children?
Such a question doctors often hear from concerned parents. The main thing - do not allow an overdose. And to do this, use a solution of the desired concentration. So, the drug "Sanorin" (children's) is specifically released at a concentration of 0.05%. It can be used for babies from the age of two. A drug with an active ingredient content of 0.01 grams (0.1%) can also be used for children, but only at the age of fifteen. For younger children, it does not fit. It is also advisable to apply an ordinary glass pipette to small children for instillation of the preparation, and not a factory-packed dropper - so you will definitely avoid overdose and do not harm the baby.
In the form of drops, the drug "Sanorin" (children's) instruction advises to apply twice or thrice a day, one or two drops in each nasal passage. Children after the age of fifteen can use drops at a concentration of 0.1 percent, a spray or an emulsion and use an adult dosage: one to three drops or one to three doses per nasal pass twice-thrice a day. The interval between instillations should not be less than four hours. The drug Sanorin for children is recommended for use for a short time, not more than three days. If the breathing of the nose is facilitated faster, then you can finish the application of the drug earlier. Start using the tool again only after a few days.
If there is a nosebleed, you can moisten the cotton swab with a 0,05-percent solution of the medicine and place it in the nasal passage. To prolong the superficial anesthesia with a rhinoscope, a 0.1% solution is used in the amount of two to four drops with one milliliter of anesthetic.
Method of use
Bury the drops or emulsion with a little tilt back the head. When you inject the medicine into the right nasal passage, tilt your head to the left, and vice versa. Before using Sanorin Spray for children for the first time, first press the dosing device several times to create a compact aerosol cloud. After this, remove the protective cap and, while holding the bottle in the vertical position, insert the end part of the dispenser into the nasal passage of the child, then quickly and quickly push the applicator. The spray is designed for adult children, and as a rule, they can do all the manipulations themselves. Immediately after the injection, you need to breathe a slight breath.
As already mentioned, the effect after instillation develops in five minutes, and sometimes even earlier, and lasts four to six hours. At the end of this time, the effect of the medication is gradually weakening. That is why the Sanorin remedy for children should be used twice or thrice a day. It can not be used more often, because in this case the so-called "tachyphylaxis" will develop, that is, the body will get used to the drug and will not react to it. Because of this, even if the rhinitis has not been eliminated after three days from the beginning of treatment, the medicine must be canceled and switched to some other (which specifically, the doctor will tell you).
If you use the drug at recommended doses, it is usually well tolerated. The agent does not affect the reaction rate and activity requiring concentration of attention. In the responses of some parents, it is reported that the children complain of a burning sensation in the nose after instillation of the medicine. Indeed, such an unpleasant sensation can arise, but it passes very quickly. Children with hypersensitivity to the drug may experience a feeling of dryness in the nose.
If you use the drug for more than a week, you may develop chronic disruption of the nasal passages and atrophy of the nasal mucosa. In rare situations, there is ricochet hyperemia. Also, the drug can produce a resorptive effect. Due to the general effect on the body and irritation of the sympathetic nervous system, in extremely rare cases, allergic reactions may develop.
Contraindications to prescription
It is forbidden to apply spray and drops "Sanorin" for children, if the patient has intolerance components of the drug, suffers from atrophic or chronic rhinitis, severe eye diseases, tachycardia.
If you use the drug systemically, you may develop symptoms such as excessive sweating, tremors, nervousness, increased blood pressure, tachycardia, headache. There is also the possibility of cyanosis, nausea, mental and respiratory disorders, and fever may increase. With depression of the central nervous system, drowsiness, bradycardia, lowering of temperature, weakness, collapse, in extremely rare cases, coma are observed. It is worth remembering that children for such drugs are much more sensitive than adults, so the risk of overdose is significantly increased.
With the simultaneous use of the drug with monoamine oxidase inhibitors, and also for fourteen days after their cancellation, blood pressure may increase, since in this case the deposited catecholamines are released by the action of naphazoline. Therefore, such joint use is prohibited. Also, the drug is able to slow the absorption and prolong the action of local anesthetics.
