Can I use Nasaline® if pregnant or breastfeeding?
Nasaline® can be safely used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In fact, since pregnant women should not be taking drugs for pregnancy congestion, nasal irrigation with saline solution is considered one of the best healthy natural alternatives to many over the counter and prescription drugs.

Are there any side effects to using Nasaline®?
There are no known side effects.

How durable is the Nasaline® product?
With frequent use, the Nasaline® product should last approximately 4 months after which time it should be disposed of for functional and hygienic reasons. During this time, discoloration may occur which has no impact on its effectiveness.

Who can use Nasaline®?
Anyone can safely use Nasaline®, unless advised otherwise by a doctor. Children may also use Nasaline® under the advice of a physician and under strict parent supervision. Individuals suffering from ear infections or other ear conditions should consult a physician before using Nasaline®.

My child is 2 years old, can I use Nasaline Junior® on him/her ?
We recommend that the child should be able to perform the irrigation on himself/herself. However, if recommended by the child's physician and under strict parent supervision, almost any child can safely use Nasaline® Junior. NEVER FORCE A CHILD TO USE NASALINE IF HE OR SHE DOES NOT COOPERATE!

I've been using a Neti Pot for years, how is Nasaline® different from the Neti Pot?
With Nasaline®, the user actually controls the amount of pressure used, depending on the level of congestion. The patented silicon tip provides for a complete seal to the nostril, preventing any saline solution from pouring back through the same nostril for a more effective nasal wash. Also, because you don't rely on gravity with Nasaline® (as with a neti pot), you don't have to tilt your head awkwardly to the side, you simply stand upright, leaning slightly forward over your sink.

Is it safe to rinse the nasal passages with saline solution?
Rinsing the nasal passages with saline solution is an ancient technique that has been recommended by doctors for centuries, all over the world.

When making the saline solution, why is it important to use 1 tsp of salt and 2 cups
   of warm water?

By mixing 1/2 teaspoon of salt with 1 cup of warm water creates a physiological saline solution. This solution is now isotonic - 0.9% salt content - which is the same salt content the body naturally produces. This is important for several reasons:

1. To prevent any stinging sensation. If too little (hypotonic) or too much (hypertonic) salt is used,
    a slight stinging feeling can be experienced.

2. By using a saline solution that contains less than 0.9% salt, will also tend to have the mucous
    membranes absorb the water from the saline, and hence you will experience swelling of
    the mucous membranes.

3. Conversely, using a little more salt (which is sometimes recommended by doctors) tends to
    shrink the membranes slightly, shrinking the mucous membranes, and hence improve
    breathing by allowing air to better flow through the nostrils.

Is the tip safe for contact with the skin?
The ENTIRE Nasaline unit is latex free and completely safe as it was specifically designed for direct contact with the skin.
The saline solution can simply be prepared in your own home at your convenience.

Can I use regular tap water?
Unless advised otherwise by your physician, you can heat up fresh CLEAN tap water or use water directly from the tap. If you are unsure of the cleanliness of your tap water, we recommend that you use distilled water.

Can I use ordinary table salt or where do I obtain saline solution?
You can use ordinary salt, but if you are planning to use Nasaline for an extended period of time, you should use salt that is non-iodized and free of preservatives or anti-caking agents. We recommend using Nasaline salt, which is free of additives such as iodine or anti-caking agents. Iodine or additives such as anti caking agents have been known to produce allergic reactions. If you decide to buy salt in the supermarket, we recommend that you use kosher salt.

Can I use sea salt to irrigate?
Although typically safe for indigestion, sea salts are generally not clean and should not be used for nasal irrigation. Some sea salts have been known to contain algae - which could result in allergic reactions.

How often can I use Nasaline®?
Use one full syringe (2 oz.) for in each nostril in the morning and in the evening, or at any time as necessary.

How should I clean Nasaline®?
Pull out the piston from the syringe and flush both parts thoroughly with hot water and let air-dry. Nasaline can also be cleaned with a mild dishwashing detergent, but it should not be necessary for cleaning. If the piston does not easily slide back into the chamber, put a drop of cooking oil on the black plunger tip.

Where and how should I store Nasaline®?
Nasaline® should be stored in a dry environment at room temperature.
