Have you ever used a Netti Pot?

I have bad allergies and sinuses and just started using a Netti Pot. For the moment I am not sneezing and my nose is not running but I am wondering if anyone has used one long term and how you like it.

  • I started using a Netti Pot (and the bottle sinus rinse, also) about a month ago because my sinus problems are so bad this time of year, and I had never tried that before. It's helped me so much already. I don't use it everyday, but I do use it a lot and I love it.

  • I have one and only use it when my nose is really stuffed up....If you use it too much it will dry your nose out really bad. I don't think it's made to use everyday...

  • Yes, and I hate it. It feels like I'm drowning and I'm using it correctly.

  • I only use it when I am stuffy, but I saw Dr. Oz on Oprah saying he used it every day.

  • layh I saw that too which is why I bought the Netti Pot in the first place. The directions say not to use it everyday or with the whole saline packet in the beginning b/c it can be drying. Maybe I will use it every other day during my bad seasons (fall and spring) and see how it goes. Thanks everyone for ur responses!
