To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've been using the Neilmed squeezy bottle for many years, and after buying this out of curiousity, I've decided it's a bit of an expensive gimmick. As a sufferer from allergic rhinitis and sinusitis, I tend to produce very thick mucous on bad days, and this machine doesn't appear to be as effective at shifting it as a squeezed bottle, even on its maximum setting - at which it empties in XX seconds.
It's possibly best used for routine maintenance, so to speak.
The leaflet contains similar instructions to the bottles. I confess I have always ignored the instruction not to use tapwater, which appears to be directed at those who don't have the purity of supply we British normally enjoy from our water companies; I have never had any problems. Likewise, I always use ordinary kitchen salt, having read in the excellent book on sinusitis by the former director of both the Harvard medical school and the Massachusets General Hospital (once voted best in the USA), that this is all you need. Again, no problems.
For someone with a nasel blockage this device can be a godsend on the other hand it can cause harm to your hearing ,so treat with caution..I found with partial blockage its great it flushes out no problem,it best to use twice a day..but if you have polyps and have real difficulty breathing you have to beware of trying to blast the solution though the blockage ,in which case it goes though the tubes into the ears (not good)..All in all I would advise it for someone who wishes to keep there nasal passages clean and free of inflection or someone who works in a dirty atmosphere...
ive bought 4 of these now great machines but after 4-6 weeks they all split at top evey one of the same keep returning must be flaw in the cheap platsic but it does work and its great easy to use just a pity they do break
I’ve given 1 star for the product but it’s not even worth that! This is the second one I’ve purchased as the first one had stopped working, the second one have only lasted a few months longer. If I didn’t need it due to post surgery, I wouldn’t have repeated my order. I’m even more disappointed with the Green Pharmacy’s response to my enquiry/complaint as they took no responsibility, since they are not the manufacturers, so they said. They should be able to provide me with a refund (as asking for a replacement is also pointless), however they have washed their hands off the issue which is a disappointment. I’ve spent over £50 for 2 items and neither of them works!!!
I don’t really do reviews but I really felt I had to write about this. I have been completely blocked up solid for several weeks. I’ve tried pretty much everything else you can buy on Amazon to help with my sinus infection. This was a game changer. I’m not sure why it works so well, perhaps it’s the pulsating nature that really unclogs the tough stuff (you know what I mean if you’re suffering like me). This thing really works and has cleared me out. I recommend if you’ve tried everything else and are continuing to suffer. Good luck. Feel better. It’s miserable being blocked up.
I have had terrible sinus issues with non allegic rhinitis, for over ten years and was 'prescribed' this by my specialist. Previously i had terrible post nasal drip and little sense of taste or smell and permanently blocked up. I have been using this for only 5 days and almost completely fixed now. Admittedly it is very weird, but very easy to use and incredibly effective. I cannnot recommend it enough.
