Good for the Price

By 

from Utah

Comments about Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray:

Comparing the good benefits to the low cost of an off-brand product, this is a good deal for the money paid.

Congestion Relief
Personally, I have never been disappointed with the results of this product when using it. It seems to clear congestion well, which will reduce the irritating and bothersome nasal drip that can come as a direct result of a cold.

Chest Congestion Relief
Although this is designed to help reduce nasal drip, reducing nasal drip will help prevent congestion from settling into the chest in the first place. In that way, it does help reduce chest congestion.

Relief of Aches & Pains
This product is designed to help relieve nasal drip, not aches and pains. Relief of aches and pains would be a nice bonus and side benefit, but it doesn't really provide any at all.

Cough Suppression
Reducing nasal drip will often help clear congestion in the throat. In that way, it does help reduce and suppress coughing throughout the duration of the cold.

Very effective!

Comments about Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray:

The Equate 12-hour Nasal Spray has been a true relief for me when I am sick and heavily congested! I use it mostly at night-time when I am so congested that I'm not able to breathe! This nasal spray is extremely effective and works just as well as any name brand nasal spray relief!

The spray is very simple to use and actually not as uncomfortable to use as you might think! The relief is almost instant and it actually lasts for quite awhile! It has even worked when I have been the most congested!

However, I would warn anyone who uses it to not use it around the clock for more than 2-3 days. At one time when I was sick and extremely congested, I used it for almost a week and it actually caused my congestion to be WORSE, which in turn resulted in an appointment to my physician to find other relief! But if you are looking for some relief at night-time to fall asleep, this is most definitely a great product!

I would only recommend this for nasal relief - not chest or head congestion.

Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray Blasts You Open

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray:

When sinus congestion gets really bad and there is no time to wait for relief, one type of medication trumps all others and that type is sinus spray. You just can’t beat the almost instant relief from sinus sprays and if you look around, you can even find a few bargain priced products available. One less costly option that works well is Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray.

Medicine Facts and Commentary:

Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray uses the active ingredient Oxymetazoline HCL to control sinus problems. A couple of squirts in each nostril are all it takes to get the active ingredient to do its thing. It slowly starts to dissolve the congestion away, restoring free breathing in seconds or even minutes.

Sinus sprays can often burn and Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Sprayis no different. You can feel the burn as soon as you spray the liquid into the nasal passages, but the burn is slight and is short lived. The relief you experience afterward will make you forget all about the minor inconvenience of burning. In less than one minute, my sinuses have reopened and I can breathe, smell, and taste like usual.

Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray is very good for what it can do and it costs less than half as much as other brands. One word of caution, however, is not to use the spray too often. The manufacturer recommends stopping use after a few days because continuous use can actually cause the sinuses to swell, closing them back up and defeating the purpose.

Bottom Line Viewpoint:

Clogged sinuses are a real annoyance and while pills perform effectively in most cases, nothing can match the almost instant relief from sinus spray. Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray is one of the better ones available, not just for the quick relief, but also for the 12 hour duration of relief and the low price. It makes a great choice when you need some fast congestion relieve and live close to a Wal- Mart store.

Congestion Relief
Congestion is dissolved away in less than one minute with this product.

I can breathe again with Equate 12 hour nasal spray!

By 

from Rocky Mount, NC

Comments about Equate No Drip 12 Hour Nasal Spray:

I have chronic sinusitis and when things flare up you better believe I reach for this. There is nothing like the feeling you have when sinus passages are swollen and inflamed making it impossable for air to flow through. The active ingredient in Equate Nasal Spray (Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride) is the exact same ingredient that is in Afrin except for less than half the price. It decreases inflamation and swelling so you can breathe again. Believe me it is impossable to sleep at night if your nasal passages are stopped up.About one to two sprays in each nostril is all I need to sleep all night without problems. A word of warning though! Do not use it for more than a couple days or it will make matters worse. The sinuses get use to having it and can not stay open without it. Don't be afraid to try it though, because it will sure make  life more enjoyable.
