Default Breath Rite Strips

Well guys and gals im tired of talking about Jay and the Coach. SO my wife wanted me to try these damn breath right strips to stop the snoring. So I tried one last night no snoring and actually felt better this morning. Has anyone one else tried these if not maybe worth it.

I use them sometimes, not for snoring, but because I have a deviated septum and have trouble breathing through my nose at the best of times, especially when I'm asleep though. They provide a bit of a relief, more than I expected. Not as much as nasal decongestant though, but that stuff's like crack.

Oh and also omg jhey cutlar is in teh wr0ng, McX liek totally shud trade him fro teh hihg draft picks.
There, now it's a real post

I used one and while they helped me breath and I woke up refreshed, they didn't stop my snoring, much to the chagrin of my wife.

Nasal Decongestants are NOT like crack.....When used properly, they cause vaso constriction of blood veessels in the nasal cavitity thereby decreasing the 'leakage' that causes one to have that 'stuffy' feeling. Psuedoephedrine (the decongestant found behind the pharmacy counter)is turned into METH not crack by addicts and dealers.......Phenylephrine is not as long acting nor as potent and that is what is now largely found in the OTC decongestant products. Nasal spary decongestatnts work for a short period but should not be overused for more than 2-3 days or they cause rebound nasal congestion--regarding the Breathe-right strips--some people swear by them but a common complaint is their lack of adhesion.......

If you're having trouble making them stick, wash your face with soap and warm water focusing particularly on your nose. If that still doesn't help, use a cotton swap with rubbing alcohol on your nose. If that doesn't work, you could have the wrong size. If you have the right size and they still don't stick, you're probably some kind of a mutant and government men will be kicking your door down soon to do experiments on your powers.

I was 12 when I tried it... a free sample in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue when they first came out.

I'm 23 now, so maybe it will work. I don't want to tray it, though. I'd rather moisturize at night.

They are great. Like Kaylore said, I don't know if they stop the snoring. However, it makes me feel better that I'm trying...

Yep. My girl made me buy some and now won't sleep in my bed if I don't wear one.

Yes!*







*Results are not typical. Breathe Rite strips are only effective if combined with a new nose, a higher paying job, an apartment of your own, and the ability to hold a conversation with the opposite sex without the aid of 8+ drinks.

We lived in FL when I was about 12 or 13. I was alergic to some grass or weed down there. We went to the ENT who told me to use the over counter decongestant when I couldnt breathe through my nose. So I did, every night. I went back a month later and he asked and I said I wasn't having trouble as long as I took the Decongestant at night both he and my mom flipped, she was buying them but didn't seem to think I was using it all the time.

No one told me to only use every couple of days.

I stopped, but had to ride my bike 4 miles to the Dr office every other week to get a shot which helped.

I hated Florida lucky we only stayed down there less than a year! That was the year Plunkett took the Raiders to the SB, I was not happy that year.

The rebound congestion pertains only to the nasal sprays(AFRIN,etc)--don't use those for more than 72 hours straight. If you still wanted a nasal spray you can use a saline product called OCEAN. The oral decongestants are ok to take daily.........
