  • Use the version that isn't a metered spray. I feel like i can't get enough "up" there if I'm already congested. Thee non metered dose i can to backwards and up into the nasal area

  • I am allergic to the active ingredients in Sudafed. Afrin (and generic versions -- I buy the generic at Walgreens) works very well, and I don't have any unpleasant side effects.

  • Should only be available to ENTs to use in office, as rebound congestion can happen after first use. Use basically anything else if you need a nasal spray, and use regular Sudafed if you need a systemic decongestant.

  • I used Afrin and other generic sprays as well and they all seemed to work the same. After using it for a couple weeks 2 to 3 times a day i did notice i had to use it more often throughout the day and that when i wasnt using it such as at night while sleeping my congestion did come back worse from prolonged use like the botyle says. This stuff works great though and fast too. Relief starts withing minutes
