NeilMed Sinus Rinse

I was nervous to use this at first but the water going up your nose isn't as annoying and uncomfortable as I thought it would be. MAKE SURE you use distilled water (I heat mine up in the microwave just warm enough to melt the added salt that is included) and don't use it when you're nose is plugged shut, this needs to flow freely through your sinuses. You can usually get a free sample of this from the NeilMed's website if you're curious to try. I use this this about twice a month just to keep my sinuses clean.

Not Good

I recently had ear tubes and nasal surgery because of my problem with breathing and hearing and my doctor told me I had to take this for a few months. It was super uncomfortable and came out not only my nose but my mouth and because I had ear tubes so ears too. I gives you a great headache and water in your ears for an entire day at least for me it did. I think this product sucks and should not be used, and whenever I use it it only works for 10 minutes. You will lose more than you will gain by using this product.

I got the NeilMed Sinus Rinse Regular Kit on the advice of my father. I have chronic sinusitis and get frequent sinus infections, especially whenever I have congestion. Anytime I get stuffed up from a cold or allergies, it will quickly become infected. My father recommended this nasal rinse to me. At first I was pretty skeptical, but it turned out to be a great purchase. It goes a long way in cleaning out my sinuses, especially when I am congested due to a cold or allergies. It helps prevent a sinus infection when I use it every morning and night while sick and with congestion. Effectiveness This nasal rinse works extremely well. The only downside to it is that if you do it right before going to bed, a bit of the saline water stays up in your nose and drips down your esophagus. Too much use will dry out your nostrils and make them bleed a bit. Ease of Use It takes a while to figure out how to use the nasal rinse. The first several times, I did not use enough salt (causing it to feel like I had gotten water up my nose like while swimming or choking on a glass of water) or used too much salt (making my nostrils feel like they were burning). Immediacy This nasal rinse works very well extremely quickly. Within minutes after use, my sinuses are almost entirely clear. I

Great for sinus infections!

I was having problems with a stuffy nose for over a year before I went to the doctor. It was allergies, and since I live in the midwest the pollen and pine was always there. I've gone through various medications - both prescription and over the counter - and none of them have worked. This NeilMed Sinus Rinse Kit is the only thing that gives me immediate relief. Whether it's allergies or a cold, this will clear your stuffy nose within seconds. This works amazingly for both me and my sister, and it lasts quite a while. It's a cheaper kit and for the price, it's definitely worth it. It works really well and it's great for just about anything that involves a stuffy nose. Effectiveness This is the most effective thing I've used for a stuffy nose, though the effects don't last that long. Immediacy It works right away, that's for sure, but it doesn't last for very long - you have to use it multiple times a day. It is a good kit, though, and it clears your stuffy nose within seconds after using it.

A Must Have!

I first started using this a few years ago when I was visiting my boyfriend out of town. As soon as I stepped off the airplane I got a full blown sinus infection and was upset that my 2week stay would be spent with headaches and a stuff nose and cough. My boyfriend's mother said I should give one of these sinus rinses a try. To be honest I thought it sounded stupid but I did not want to be rude so i gave it a try. It actually worked great! It flushed so much of the "gunk" out of my sinuses and allowed me to breath. I kept doing it for the duration of my stay and after a few days my symptoms were very mild. Now as soon as I get the slightest bit stuffed up I do one of these to help prevent a sinus infection. I used to get about 6-8 sinus infections a year and they would last a few weeks. Now I usually get 1 and my symptoms go away after a couple of days. I would recommend this to anyone with any sinus problems. It is super simple as well as effective. Ease of Use The first time you use this it will seem weird! Once you get past the idea that you are "putting water up your nose" it is not bad at all. I have never had a problem using this and it is so satisfying to see all the gross stuff come out of your nose!

Actually Irritated My Sinuses Even More!

I've tried various incarnations of the Neti Pot over the years to help relieve my seasonal allergies with very little success. The NeilMed Sinus Rinse Regular Kit was the latest failed attempt. Unlike the pots this model has a squeeze bottle which is supposed to deliver the solution to exactly the right spot. Well, when I followed the instructions the solution did not only not drain out the other nostril, declogging my nose in the process, but actually drained down my throat! It actually seemed to make things worse and irritated my already inflamed nasal cavity. The solution seemed to get stuck in my nasal cavity and drained out slowly for the remainder of the evening. It was not ideal since I had to sleep propped up. While others have had great success with this it was just not for me. I was not impressed with the performance and certainly would not recommend it to anyone.

Works well, but it is not pleasant.

This really does work really well if you are having a bad allergy spell, it clears it up really fast and makes it to where the congestion is gone and that you can breath again and go on with your life without feeling horrible. The downside to this product though, is actually having to use it on yourself. I am not one for the nasal sprays or the neti pots that you use to clear yourself out. I think they are hard to use and are not anything that I enjoy doing. Having to put this up your nose to clear it out is not fun or pleasant, it is pretty gross and what you will see come out is also very nasty. I would not recommend something like this for some younger children because they will not have fun with it and neither will you. I tried to use it on my 13 year old who was having a horrible time with his allergies and it made such a mess and he felt so sick after using it. I use this when my allergies or congestion are so bad that i can not stand it anymore, but it is not something that I would use on a regular basis.

cleans and moisturizes

The Nedimed Pot is the best thing for your sinus'. For those that don't want to take medications by mouth this is for you. It will clean your sinus cavities and help moisturize the dryness. It's also very easy to use. I didn't think I would like it at first but I loved it and still do.

Works really well to rinse my sinuses

I was worried about using this product since I tend to gag when I get water up my nose. My doctor told me about this when I was telling him all about my seasonal allergies. He recommended this since it really rinses out the pollen from my sinuses. This was a little uncomfortable to use the first time, but was much easier once I was used to it. I simply put the packet provided along with warm tap water and mix it together until the packet dissolved. I put it into one nostril and tilt my head into the sink until the water drains from the other side. It really helps to unclog my sinuses and I am able to blow my nose and have relief. When my allergies are really bad, I use this multiple times a day and it really helps. I would highly recommend trying this product if you suffer from seasonal allergies and looking for fast relief. Ease of Use This is not the easiest product to use, but once you have used it a few times, it is much easier. Immediacy This product gives immediate relief.
