Nasal Allergies & Common Cold
Nasal Irritation from Occupational dust, fumes, animal dander, grass, pollen, smoke, smog & house dust
Post Nasal Drip, Congestion & Dryness
Do not rinse if nasal passage is completely blocked or if you have an ear infection or blocked ears. If you experience any pressure in the ears, stop the rinse and get further directions from your physician. For non-emergency questions, please contact our office. Please read enclosed brochure for more details.
When we get allergy symptoms, we use nasal rinses- these plastic squeeze bottles are easier and more packable than the "neti pots" so many use.
An Indian friend of mine says they've been using nasal rinses in India for a long time- it's a good way to treat nasal symptoms without needing to use any medicine.
Sometimes it takes a few days of consistent use to work on congestion symptoms, but you feel the clearing of your sinuses right away.
You can also make your own saline solution by mixing in 2-3 tsp of NON-iodized salt per liter of water- and you can fill the bottle with warm tap water. (The boxes may say to use distilled water, but, I figure, it's just passing thru- plus if you can DRINK tap water, you should certainly be able to use it for nasal rinse!) [If the saline stings your nose, you can also add 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda.]
(Hint- You may need to bend over and blow your nose with your head turned each way, afterward, depending on whether your sinuses curve or not. Or else, you may get a runny nose surprise when you lie down.)

My ENT told me to use this product as a prophylactic for asthma, on the assumption that sinus drainage was contributing to asthma. But when I had asthma symptoms and took this, it literally exploded in my nose -- asthma can cause acid breath, and baking soda (1 of the 2 ingredients) reacts with acid, producing heat and releasing gas. I also have diabetes, which also produces acid breath, and is worse when I'm ill. Within a fraction of a second, the chemical reaction scalded my nose and the pressure from expanding gasses pushed the reacting mix up into my sinuses. This is a great product IF you don't have acid breath -- but if you do, it can cause a painful problem!
Comments about NeilMed Sinus Rinse Regular Refill Packets, 100 ea:
These work great with the Neil Med bottle. They contain the exact correct amount of powder to make your water salty enough to squirt up your sinuses. Any less and it feels like you just inhaled the backyard swimming pool. I use daily (and sometimes a couple of times a day) to keep my sinuses from feeling dry. When my allergies kick in and my eyes start to itch, this provides instant relief.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
