Frequently Asked Cinnabsin® (FAQ)

Please find some useful answers to your Cinnabsin® as follows:

What are the advantages of Cinnabsin® in the treatment of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis?

  • Excellent natural medicine for successful treatment of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis
  • Positive risk-benefit profile
  • Virtually no side-effects
  • Suitable for long-term treatment due to its good tolerability
  • Recommended for use in adults and children

Why is Cinnabsin® recommended in chronic as well as in acute rhinosinusitis? Isn´t this a contradiction?

No, it isn´t! Cinnabsin® consists of 4 unique active ingredients which complement each other. Each contributes to the effectiveness of Cinnabsin®, but they develop their respective main effect at different points in time.

Possible side-effects under treatment with Cinnabsin®

Cinnabsin® is a very well tolerated homeopathic medicine. In very rare cases, hypersensitivity reactions such as skin rash and gastrointestinal complaints may occur.
Symptoms of an allergic reaction (e.g. skin rash, pruritus and in rare cases facial swelling, dyspnoea, dizziness and a fall in blood pressure) have been observed after taking Echinacea-containing medicinal products. In such cases consult a doctor!

What about very small children?

The dosage recommendation of Cinnabsin® starts with children of 2 years.* As the development of the paranasal sinuses follows a specific chronological order, children below 2 years of age have – if at all – only very small sinuses, thus sinusitis occurs very rarely or never in this age group.

Can Cinnabsin® be taken alongside other medication?

Yes, there is no evidence against taking Cinnabsin® together with other medications that have been prescribed by a physician or alternative practitioner.

What makes the treatment with Cinnabsin® so special?

Compared to symptomatic drug treatment, Cinnabsin® does more than just soothe rhinosinusitis-associated symptoms. Cinnabsin®, as a natural homeopathic product, stimulates and boosts the body´s self-defence mechanisms. Consequently, it helps to prevent the body from catching new infections.

Cinnabsin® is classified as a medicinal product and is therefore available in pharmacies only.
Cinnabsin® is available without prescription.
