Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "I am writing on behalf of my partner who used the nasal spray to relieve a blocked nose, within two days of using she experienced severe flu like symptoms alongside a sore threat, light headedness and dizziness. The product only worked for a short period of time before returning her nose back to its blocked self."

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "12 hours? What a joke. Lasts about 12 seconds then your nose runs for days. Addicting as hell. Once you use it one you must keep using it or you plug up bad."

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "Effectiveness, is slow with several applications. Works for short period of time. Afrin works longer and better, without the camphor smell and burn."

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "I had severe congestion and pressure causing pain and a headache. Sinex worked within 5 minutes of using. I can now breathe out of my nose for the first time today. I was real skeptical at first but am very happy with the results. Definitely recommend!"

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "Not only did I not feel congestion relief after using this; I had almost an immediate bloody nose after I used it. I didn't find it helpful."

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "This product REALLY works. Vicks Sinex is the only nasal spray that really works and clears up your nose to breathe properly and get some good sleep when you're congested. Always keep it with me when I travel and during winter times. Best product for quick relief!!"

For Nasal Congestion: "Immediate ability to breath fully and normally through nose. Made me realize I have chronic congestion as I don't ever recall being able to breath through my nose this well. Unfortunately it lasts a few hours max for me and its recommended to not take for more than three days. An absolute tease but fantastic being able to sleep breathing through my nose"

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for : "Ever since I was young I have used this nasal spray every time I came down with a cold. I've even tried to buy cheaper brands, but this is the only one that really works. The only downfall to the product is that it doesn't last a full 12 hours, maybe only five or six. Also, I would only recommend it to those who have a cold, not for long-term use or people with allergies."

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "Love the product and keep it on hand EVERY winter. I've had trouble breathing in winter months for as long as I can remember. Sinex is the only product I know of that works instantly so I can go to sleep without breathing through my mouth! I love it! I can't find the words to say just how much I love it and how well IT WORKS!"

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "Over the last few weeks, I've been struggling with nasal congestion on and off with the rapid changes of weather we have been experiencing in Texas. I figured that by drinking plenty of non-caffeinated fluids (i.e. mostly water, herbal teas, etc), my condition would go away on its own. I do not believe in using medicines to solve small problems like headaches and colds, but with only hours to spare before a presentation at work I gave in and tried Sinex. I have never had such a quick turn-around from not being able to breathe through my nose at all to having near perfect breathing in a matter of seconds. My family has stood by Vicks products for years and I most certainly can and will recommend Sinex Spray as a solution to nasal congestion."

Afrin 4 Hour Extra Moisturizing (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: "Relieves symptoms and nose not as dry. But can only be used for short periods due to label warnings. After that it may worsen symptoms."
