Tetrahydrozoline is a derivative of imidazoline, which is found in over-the-counter eye drops and nasal sprays. Other derivatives include naphazoline, oxymetazoline, and xylometazoline. Poisoning can result from an overdose.
Additional recommended knowledge
Tetrahydrozoline is widely believed to cause violent diarrhea if administered orally, as in a few drops of Visine in an unsuspecting person's beverage. However, this is an urban legend, and the actual results may vary from severe nausea and vomiting to seizures or a coma. Diarrhea is not a side effect.
