Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: “I tried this and then used it 12 hours later, now I’m having trouble breathing my heart rate keeps going up. I feel like something inside of me is attacking my inside of my body. I had a rash everywhere my face keeps blistering. My eye brows fell off. I just took it because of sore throat and cold was coming on. Now I feel so awful because of this product.”

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: “The old formulation of the Vicks Sinex spray is the best product I ever used. I tried a prescription meds and it didn't work as fast nor lasted as long. Different strokes for different folks. Mine is #1 Sinex.”

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: “I've been using this product for years. I think it is by far the best nasal spray out there. Like any nasal spray, it offers TEMPORARY relief, and you shouldn't keep using it for more than one or two applications because it will increase your congestion when it wears off after consecutive doses. If you have a long lasting cold, use this product when you can't stand the congestion anymore, then switch to a nasal decongestant in pill form for longer term relief. That's what I do. I really like the vicks menthol in this product too, I don't think that's in any other nasal spray. Some people, like my wife, don't like or react well to nasal sprays, but I think it's a big help when used properly for sinus conditions.”

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: “Coming down with a cold and couldn't breath at night. I went to the drugstore and looked over hundreds of different products. A guy came breezing down the aisle, stopped for only a second and grabbed two bottles of this product. Then Off he went just as fast. I took that as a sign from the universe. Thank you God I can breathe again! I had a full nights sleep and breathed easily without any difficulty whatsoever. The name on the bottle says "Vicks Sinex Severe" It is a 12 hour nasal spray medication and it worked for literally hours enough for a good nights sleep.”

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: “This product really worked for me. Had nasal congestion caused by a cold, could not breathe through my nostrils. Two sprays up each nostril.. blow nose then another spray up each nostril and I can breathe with complete ease. Would definitely recommend this product. It does sting a tiny bit and its not cheap but still worth every penny to be able to get some sleep without a blocked up nose.”

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (phenylephrine) for Nasal Congestion: “After 5 days of solid congestion, I purchased this at my local supermarket. 2 sprays in each nostril, waited 5 mins and then gave my nose a blow. Then took another 2 sprays and left it to do it's thing. An hour later, my airways are completely clear. Fantastic product!”

Vicks Sinex Nasal Spray (old formulation) (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 (old formulation) (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.”

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 (old formulation) (phenylephrine): “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 (old formulation) (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!”
