Pros: Helps moisturize dry nasal passages
Cons: Pricey; relief is short-lived; may sting
I was in Houston over Spring Break, surrounded by a bunch of smokers, so of course my allergies decided to act up, and before I knew it I had a full-fledged sinus infection. I trudged off to Walgreen's in search of relief. Most over-the-counter sinus medications have a tendency to dry out my nasal passages, which at this time were already irritated from the smoke, so I decided to include some saline nasal spray in my purchases. I've found them useful in the past and considerably more effective than traditional nasal sprays, which only seem to make the problem worse and are addictive anyway.
I've had some moderate success with Breathe-Right nasal strips in the past and Walgreen's was having a special, so I opted for Breathe-Right saline spray over the other, more moderately priced, brands. I had it open before I left the parking lot, and it did seem to provide at least a temporary improvement in my sinus condition, although the effect wore off fairly quickly and it stings a bit at first. I used it periodically over the course of the infection and it worked fairly well, particularly at night when my nasal swelling was at its worst. However, as I mentioned before, its effect is short-lived, so you have to use quite a bit to keep nasal swelling to a tolerable level.
Overall, a good product, but lower-priced brands seem to work just as well.
