With the weather in crazy mode here in Virginia the past few months, I have been suffering from sinus congestion and pressure. I'm not a sickly person who gets a cold often, but when the weather moves from 70 to 20 in a matter of days, I get sinus congestion every time. I also have a wood stove at home as the main source of heat for my house, so the air can get pretty dry, which doesn't help keep the sinuses in order.
Afrin's Original 12-hour nasal decongestant spray and have to say I'm very pleased with the product. I've tried several nasal sprays before...from the ones that are just simple saline to the prescription Flonase. I've never found one that doesn't have some issue....whether not working at all or dripping a bad taste down the back of my throat. I like that Afrin comes with a full line of NoDrip products to help with your sinus issues. They have Original, Severe Congestion, Extra Moisturizing, and Sinus sprays available, all in NoDrip formulas.
When I tried the Original NoDrip Afrin, I was pleased that the product stood by it's word that it wouldn't drip back out of my nose and didn't drip down the back of my throat upon application. However, I did get a little drippage down my throat after about 10 minutes of application but it wasn't a lot and didn't create an offensive taste in my mouth. I have had moderate sinus congestion for the last several days and was breathing a lot better within a minute of using 2 sprays per nostril. This spray works fast! Within 10 minutes my sinuses were completely clear of any congestion and I was clear all day long at work.
