Adults and children over 12 years: 1-2 sprays per nostril every 8-12 hours. Do not exceed the recommended dose. Duration of treatment: advise the patient that, in the absence of a complete therapeutic response within a few days, he must consult the doctor; in any case, the treatment must not be continued for more than 4 days. Pediatric population: the medicinal product is contraindicated in children below 12 years of age (see section 4.3).Method of administrationThe bottle must be used holding it vertically, to obtain spray nebulizations. For a correct use of the nebulizer, proceed as follows: Remove the protective cap after blowing your nose, keeping your head in the normal position, introduce the olive into the nostril and spray by pressing the bottle evenly once or twice with quick and energetic strokes. After nebulization, inhale deeply with your mouth closed, pressing lightly with your index finger on the other nostril, in order to ensure that the solution is distributed over the entire nasal mucosa. Then repeat the application in the other nostril. The empty space above the liquid is necessary for a perfect functioning of the bottle as a nebulizer.

Special warnings

Prolonged use of vasoconstrictors for topical nasal use can alter the normal function of the nasal mucosa and paranasal sinuses, causing chronic inflammation and atrophy; moreover it can also induce addiction to the drug. The use, especially if prolonged, of topical products can give rise to sensitization phenomena. When the vasoconstrictor effect of the drug ceases, edema of the nasal mucosa may occur due to reactive hyperemia.Mild and moderate arterial hypertensionDue to the potential risk of systemic absorption, Fexallegra nasale should be used with caution in patients with mild to moderate arterial hypertension; in these patients the use of nasal decongestants must however be subjected to clinical evaluation from time to time.Diabetes mellitusDuring treatment with sympathetic mimetic medicinal products, impaired glucose regulation may occur due to drug interaction with antidiabetic medicinal products or the effect on glucose metabolism. Due to the potential risk of systemic absorption, Fexallegra nasal should be used with caution in patients with diabetes mellitus.Pheochromocytoma and porphyriaDue to the potential risk of systemic absorption, Fexallegra nasale should be used with caution in patients with pheochromocytoma and porphyria.Elderly peopleIn the elderly, the medicine should be used with caution. Dizziness, sedation, confusion and hypotension may be more likely in elderly patients taking antihistamines. Elderly patients are particularly sensitive to the anticholinergic side effects of antihistamines, such as dry mouth and urinary retention (especially in male patients).Misuse / medication administration errorThe medicine should not be used orally. If accidentally ingested or if used for a long time in excessive doses, it can cause toxic phenomena. Accidental ingestion in children can cause severe central nervous system depression with marked sedation (see section 4.9). Contact of the liquid with the eyes can cause irritation.Important information about some of the ingredientsFexallegra nasale contains the preservative benzalkonium chloride which can cause irritation and, especially if used for long periods, persistent nasal congestion; in this case, a nasal medication without benzalkonium chloride or, alternatively, another pharmaceutical form should be used.

Expiration and retention

Interactions with other drugs

Antidepressant drugs and vasopressor drugsDue to the presence of the sympathomimetic agent tramazoline hydrochloride, Fexallegra nasale must not be administered together with antidepressant drugs and in the two weeks following the administration of the latter. The administration of nasal Fexallegra concomitantly with antidepressant drugs (MAO inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants) or with vasopressor drugs, can cause an increase in blood pressure. Use in combination with tricyclic antidepressants can also cause arrhythmias. MAO inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants may prolong and intensify the anticholinergic and central nervous system (CNS) depressant effects of chlorpheniramine maleate.CNS depressant drugsAlcohol, sedatives, opioid analgesics, hypnotics can cause increased sedation effects due to the antihistamine chlorpheniramine maleate.PhenytoinWhen taken concomitantly with phenytoin, chlorpheniramine maleate may lead to decreased elimination of phenytoin with an increased risk of phenytoin toxicity.Antihypertensive drugsInteractions with antihypertensive drugs, especially those whose action involves the sympathetic nervous system, can be complex and lead to various cardiovascular effects.

Overdose

SymptomsAn increase in blood pressure and tachycardia can, especially in children, be followed by a fall in blood pressure, subnormal temperatures, shock and reflex bradycardia. Similarly to other alpha-sympathomimetic drugs, the clinical picture of intoxication with nasal Fexallegra can be confused, since phases of stimulation and depression of the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system can alternate. Especially in children, intoxications produce effects on the Central Nervous System such as convulsions and coma, bradycardia, respiratory depression. Central nervous system stimulation symptoms are anxiety, agitation, hallucinations and convulsions. Central nervous system depression symptoms are hypothermia, lethargy, drowsiness and coma. In addition, the following symptoms may occur: mydriasis, miosis, sweating, fever, pallor, cyanosis of the lips, cardiovascular dysfunction, including cardiac arrest, respiratory dysfunction, including respiratory failure and respiratory arrest, psychological alterations. Similarly to other H1 antagonist drugs, in the case of acute intoxication with chlorpheniramine maleate, the greatest danger is represented by central excitatory effects. The syndrome includes hallucinations, arousal, ataxia, athetosis and convulsions. Dilated and fixed pupils with a flushed face may be found, along with sinus tachycardia, urinary retention, dry mouth and fever.TherapyIn case of nasal overdose, wash or clean the nasal mucous membranes carefully immediately. Symptomatic treatment may be required.
