Stick it in your nose!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Works like a charm!

Cons:You look like a dork using it...

The Bottom Line: Love this stuff if you want to breathe through both nostrils.


Remember my review (or am i flattering myself) on the bubble bath for colds and flu season? I used this product furing that same week; the worst cold I EVER had. I had one nostril that never would work and the other was runny and I coldn't breath out of either of them. My fiance came over with a "goodie bag" of OTC drugs; Nyquil, Cough Drops, Asprin, a heating pad, and this wonder stick. I laughed at hinm for even buying it, but it was sweet. I have never used one (but my grandfather still does...I think he is aditcted to them). Anyway, After my bath in the heavenly soothing wash that helped me breathe, I put on my jammies (no, not the kind with the feet in them) and got into bed. The nostrils plugged up and I reached for this. IT WORKED! Here is how I rate this little gem:


How does this medication compare to others I've used to treat the same condition?
I love Vicks Vaporub, but it is greasy and hard to rinse off, so this is a great alternative. It works the same way, but has no "side effects." It opened up my sinuese and made breathing not only possible, but easy. This is definitly a wonderful product for a cold.

How quickly does the medicine take effect? How long does one dose last?
Because you inhale this to assit with breathing, it is an immediate effect. I love that. You sure don't have to wait for a pill to take effect or the Nyquil to work (which never really help with the issue of the dilapitated nostrilo anyway). When the effects of this stop working, thorw that stick into the nose again for another whiff. I used it about three times in fifteen minutes before falling asleep. It sure was great!

What are the particular side effects and interactions?
There are no "noticiable" side effects because it does not enter the blood stream or stay on the skin. Although I am not a doctor, it does not appear to have any side effects!

Would I purchase this again? Why or why not?
Well, I didn't purchase it in the first place...prince charming did. Because I was no longer cranky about not breathing and it made his life happier, I think he would buy it again. I would buy it for myself anytime I needed it. You can guarantee that when I get a cold next, i will have one of these on me at all times. What I do not like abou this product is, where do you use it? Would you feel comfotable pulling it out at a board meeting, teacher/parent conference, car pool, or grocery store? Of course not! I think that is the only drawback. It is just weird that way.

What is it and how does it work?
it is a small, plastic, smooth white stick that you inhale in each nostril to help you breathe better. it smells like Vicks Vaporub, or menthol. It simply opnes up your nostrils, lets you take in air through your nose, which is a challenge if you have a cold. It is helpful during sickness or when your allergies are bad. You might feel silly using it, but it sure does work on that. While it doesn't help with the aches and pains, headace, or nausea, it helps with the snifflies.
