Application instruction of Cametonum (Way and dosage)

Before an irrigation the oral cavity should be rinsed water. At diseases of a throat and throat use barrels without the dosing valve. If the sprayer is applied to a bottle, it is put on and do 2–3 trial pressing until solution begins to vypryskivatsya. The sprayer is entered into an oral cavity and inject medicine. Drug is held in an oral cavity till 5 min.

For the maximum effect it is better not to inhale and not to swallow of spray for a throat. In this connection, drug can be used only for children 6–8 years which are able to manage breath are more senior and do not resist a foreign subject in a mouth.

At adults for one use do 2-4 sprayings in right and to the left side of a throat, children have 6 - 12 years – on 1 spraying, more senior on 2 sprayings. Frequency of use is 3-4 times a day, duration of treatment is 7 days.

The instruction on Cametonum contains warnings that after spraying it is impossible to accept liquid or food within an hour. To avoid hit in eyes. After use the sprayer should be washed out water.

Pay attention that Cametonum is issued in two forms — spray and an aerosol. These are different dosage forms and they differ in the principle of supply of drug (at an aerosol there is always a gas displacer) and particle sizes. The aerosol is a suspension with a particle size of 1-5 microns (such particles are inhaled and get to the lower respiratory parts), spray has more coarse particles — 10-50 microns therefore there is no danger of their inhalation. If to carry out spraying on a breath, the aerosol in small quantity will settle Cametonum in a stomatopharynx, and to get generally into lower parts of respiratory tracts. In that case high probability of systemic action, than local. It is necessary to pay attention to it upon purchase of drug in a drugstore and it is correct to use it.

Below we will find out whether pregnant women can apply Cametonum.

Cametonum in a nose

Whether it is possible to splash in a nose Cametonum? At prolonged use decongestants (the vasoconstrictive drugs eliminating a nose congestion) can cause a converse effect — to strengthen cold and a congestion of a nose in this connection, it is possible to apply them 3–5 days.

For more prolonged use the drugs containing essential oils, for example, Evkazolin, Pinosol or Cametonum are recommended. At cold spray is more reasonable to apply Cametonum. As we found out earlier, its particles cannot be inhaled, and they are late in a nasopharynx. Besides, it is issued in bottles with the dosing valve that does not allow drug overdose.

At treatment of rhinitis it is necessary to clear a nose of slime. Not to throw back the head, to hold a barrel vertically and to enter the sprayer on depth of 0,5 cm. To carry out injection on a phase of "breath". At adults for once carry out 2-3 sprayings in a nostril, to children of 5 — 12 years — on 1 spraying, children of 12 — 15 years — on 2 sprayings. Drug is used by 3-4 times a day for 7-10 days.


At observance of a dosage and frequency rate of use of cases of overdose it is not noted.

Cametonum at pregnancy

Whether it is possible to use this drug at pregnancy? There is no sufficient experiment on use it during pregnancy. If there is such need, it is necessary to estimate potential advantage for mother and risk for a fruit. It is obvious that independently itself should not appoint this drug. Low system absorption causes a possibility of use of Cametonum during feeding by a breast.

The instruction at pregnancy

At pharyngalgias, discomfort and irritation it is possible to use Cametonum, strictly observing recommendations. To spray in an oral cavity (2 injections, without inhaling an aerosol) or a nose (on one injection of spray in each nostril on a breath) 3 times a day. It is also necessary to reduce treatment duration. It is better to apply 2-3 days at the expressed pains and irritation in a throat, and then to pass to rinsings with broths of herbs.

The advantages of drugs on the basis of phytoextracts which are let out in the form of aerosols are in this situation indisputable. Their high level is obvious to safety therefore it is better to apply these means pregnant with women when breastfeeding. For example, Anginal series sprays.
