I am a 38yr old female who lives for this medications effectiveness. I've used it of and on for several years when I need relief from seasonal allergies or stuffiness and congestion from the common cold.

My allergies are so bad during the summer that I have the use this drug frequently.

Comment:
Beware of this drug. I became addicted to Kirkland brand (Costco) nasal spray. I started using it just to relieve a stuffy nose during a cold, but just kept on using it because it worked so well. However, after a few months, I couldnt breath through my nose without it. I would go through a 1 ounce spray bottle every 3-5 days!
