Difficulty in urination secondary to prostate enlargement. Oxymetazoline is a sympathomimetic that selectively agonizes a1 and, partially, a2 adrenergic receptors. Since vascular beds widely express a1 receptors, the action of oxymetazoline results in vasoconstriction. In addition, the local application of the drug also results in vasoconstriction due to its action on endothelial postsynaptic a2 receptors, systemic application of a2 agonists, in contrast, causes vasodilation because of centrally-mediated inhibition of sympathetic tone via presynaptic a2 receptors.Vasoconstriction of vessels results in relief of nasal congestion in two ways: first, it increases the diameter of the airway lumen; second, it reduces fluid exudation from postcapillary venules.It can reduce nasal airway resistance (NAR) up to 35.7% and nasal mucosal blood flow up to 50%. Oxymetazoline is available over-the-counter as a topical decongestant in the form of oxymetazoline hydrochloride in nasal sprays.
