SODIUM CHLORIDE + XYLITOL - Watsons Health

SODIUM CHLORIDE + XYLITOL

 

This product contains a purified gentle salt solution (also called saline or sodiumchloride solution). It also contains xylitol, a naturally occurring alcohol extracted from birch wood. Xylitol has antiseptic properties.

This product is used to treat dryness inside the nose (nasal passages). It helps add moisture inside the nose to dissolve and soften thick or crusty mucus. In babies and young children with stuffy noses who cannot blow their noses, using this product helps to make the mucus easier to remove with a nasal bulb syringe. This helps relieve stuffiness and makes breathing easier. Xylitol provides antibacterial action.

Do NOT use if you are allergic to sodium chloride or xylitol.

Side effects usually do not occur with use of sodium chloride. However, if the inside of your nose is very dry and irritated, stinging may occur. If this effect persists or worsens, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

A very serious allergic reaction to sodium chloride is rare. However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

Xylitol can cause diarrhea and intestinal gas.
