Ray, If Vick helps you then stick to it! I used to use it back in 2003 when I occasionally used it in conjunction with the nasal plasters, which I liked but didn't like the fact that they cost a quid a night!!!!
The reason I am posting is that I still use a V-pillow which I bought from Argos for £6.50 and this works very well at keeping you sleeping on one side or the other, I am not sure quite why, but it does !
