Has anyone tried the Waterpik Sinusense Pulsator to clean sinuses? If so, did it help? I would appreciate any information.
I have been doing it for years and think it makes a big difference. My wife finally started flushing a couple of years ago and anytime she is starting to get sick she'll start up. Even my 9 year old will use it when he gets sick and has a cold settling in that stuffs him up. Unfortunatly I have much scarring from previous surguries and am finding out I have some environmental allergies which I think are part of my issues. If you are asking for advice, then yes....flush with a waterpik (just get the end from your ENT that makes it more of a flood instead of a jet of water). I have used the aerosol cans and they don't give me nearly as much reliefe as the waterpik.
The machine is effective, . . . when it's working. The compartment that holds the batteries does not seal tightly and the salt solution leaks in and corrodes everything. Company website doesn't allow contact unless you've saved your receipt and everything. Personally, I won't buy another Waterpik product.
There's actually a better Waterpik-based solution than the Sinusense. You can buy a sinus irrigation tip from Ethicare that works with any of the traditional Waterpiks which will help you avoid the issue with the batteries and is a much more durable long-term solution.
