Summary of Clinical Use
Naphazoline is a vasoconstrictor which temporarily reduces eye redness by narrowing swollen blood vessels in the eyes.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Agonism of the α-adrenoceptors in the nasal muscosa results in vasoconstriction leading to decreased blood flow and decreased nasal congestion. However, we have been unable to find affinity data for this drug to substantiate its MMOA.
