Effects - How it works in the body

Eltor belongs to the family of drugs known as decongestant, nasal drug and commonly used for the treatment and prevention or relief of nasal and sinus congestion. Eltor contains the active ingredient pseudoephedrine hydrochloride. Eltor works by stimulating receptors (alpha-receptors) in certain areas of the body, particularly in the lining of the nose and sinuses. Alpha-receptors are present on the muscles in the walls of blood vessels. When these Alpha-receptors are stimulated by pseudoephedrine, the muscle contracts, which causes the blood vessel to narrow. This allows less fluid to travel through these blood vessels. In the lining of the nose and sinuses, this results in less fluid being pushed out of the blood vessels into these linings and therefore reduces the production of mucous, thereby relieving the symptoms of nasal congestion. Pseudoephedrine can therefore be used to relieve symptoms such as blocked nose, blocked sinuses and catarrh, in conditions such as colds, flu and nasal allergies, or hay fever.
