    I have sleep apnea, and I use Afrin to keep my airway open while I sleep, in conjunction with CPAP therapy. Therefore, I take it before bedtime; its effects last all night and then some.

    When I began using Afrin, I had trouble getting it to squirt out of the bottle. It congealed too easily. So I began diluting the Afrin 50-50 with distilled water.

    Dilution has had several benefits. It makes the substance easy to squirt into my nose, and reduces the amount I need to use.

    Furthermore, I think diluting the Afrin helps prevent the "Afrin rebound" effect: if you use it too much, it is said to stop working and even to make symptoms worse. So I dilute it, and use it only once per 24 hours. For me, it's effective for about 20 hours rather than 12.

    I give it three squirts into the left nostril, which is my
    "problem side," and two squirts into the right nostril: equivalent to one-and-a-half and one squirt of the undiluted product, respectively.

    Incidentally, I do NOT recommend that you dilute the Afrin. To do so you must use absolutely pristine water -- I use distilled -- and be very careful not to contaminate the bottle or the product within. But I have gotten away with this procedure for years; diluting the gunky, gelatinous Afrin makes a good-but-not-easily-usable product into an excellent product.

    And of course, by diluting it I reduce the per-use cost.

    The product works great. Within 2-5 minutes your sinuses will be clear and you will breathe freely.

    The problem is, it's extremely habit forming. I've been using it for 7 or 8 years, so believe me when I say, DON'T USE IT FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS. I go through a whole bottle of the stuff in about a week.

    After prolonged use, without it your sinuses will swell up so tightly that you will swear your eyes will pop out of your head. Trust me when i say that it is a VERY UNPLEASANT feeling!

    I've quit smoking, something I never thought I could ever do, but that was NOTHING compared to quitting this stuff.

    So, like I said; the stuff works great, but be extremely careful about how long you use it!

      Comments about Afrin No Drip 12 Hour Pump Mist, Severe Congestion, .5 fl oz:

      This product is a GODSEND when you are suffering from severe sinus congestion from a bad cold or allergies. It works almost immediately and you get relief! It says to use every 12 hours, but it doesn't last that long, usually 6 or 8 hours before you need a new dose. I've used it every 6 to 8 hours with a severe cold and did not find that I was addicted to it and was easily able to stop using this when my congestion finally subsided for good.

        Excellent produce for severe congestion. Not for long-term use unless absolutely necessary. Doesn't last for 12 hours, as advertised, but does reliably provide relief for 6 to 8 hours. Far better than generic substitutes and worth extra price.

            It sure does relieve severe congestion, almost instantly. Alas, you're supposed to only take it for 3 days. I'm addicted to either this product, or the regular 12 hour pump mist.

                At 2 squirts at a time seems to cause sleeplessness after 5 os 6 days.

                At one squirt aday this does not seem to happen.
