FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I use the ChitoRhino (NeilMed) bottle like a Neti Pot?
The ChitoRhino bottle uses a different technique. After your rinse is prepared, place your bottle on the edge of a sink and bend at the waist so your nostril meets the top of the bottle.
How can I stop the medication from running down my throat?
First, check to make sure you're using proper technique. Will all of our sinus therapy devices, bend forward at the waist and tilt your head downward. Open your mouth and breathe normally.
Do I put the medication into the bottle first or the saline?
Measure out the prescribed medication into the measuring cup and pour into your sinus rinse bottle. Add saline to the 240ml fill line.
What are the side effects of the medication?
Topical medications such as these typically have very few systemic side effects. This is due to very little systemic absorption of the medication. Side effects that may go away during treatment include nose bleeds, sore throat, and nasal irritations. If they continue or are bothersome, the patient should contact their physician.
The medication comes back out. Is that how it works?
Yes. This is a topical medication. It rinses your sinuses and comes back out allowing the medication to work on that specific area.
When should I start feeling the effects of the medication?
These medications start to work around 1-2 weeks into treatment. It depends on the severity of the condition and consistency of the use of the rinse.
My heat sensitive product is warm. Is it ok?
Yes. Heat sensitive products can be exposed to high temperatures over short periods of time, without concern of the heat harming the product.
