The drop induces systemic vasoconstriction to reduce blood flow in the nasal passage and conjunctiva. It achieves this by promoting the action of alpha adrenergic receptors present in these areas. This drop also works by triggering the TRPM8 receptors in the skin that are cold-sensitive. It does that by blocking calcium currents of the neuronal membrane. Through kappa-opioid receptor agonism, it can also produce analgesic characteristics.
