Works like a dream
on the 25th Oct 2017
I have a fairly narrow nose, with a slightly deviated septum, and over the years had developed into a terribly noisy snorer. As a slim female in my early sixties, who rarely drinks alcohol I don't look like a snorer, but my poor husband was suffering badly. The Nasdil dilator worked perfectly from the first night, preventing my nostrils from pulling inwards as I tried to breathe through them. It felt a bit odd the first time or two, but because the silicone rubber is relatively soft, any discomfort was minimal, and the flow of air feels wonderful.Have only used for a week, so can't comment on how it will last. Washing it is simple.

I tried a different type of nasal dilator first and it used to get very painful by about 2 am so I would have to take it out. The nasdil was much more comfortable to insert and keep there but by 3 am it was sore and I had to take it out. I tried for several nights but no good. It's a shame as when these dilators are in place I can actually breath through my right nostril ( so I don't snore) Oh well back to the drawing board. There MUST be some comfortable ones out there !!

I got an stepoplasty operation but my nostrils still collapsed when I lay down flat. I bought a nasdil dilator from your firm. I now can breathe through my nostrils while wearing the nasdil dilator when sleeping.
Very good but too big

I've tried a number of these devices. This one works very well and I like this small carry case that comes with it. My only gripe is that it is far too big for me and stretches my nose so much, it makes me look like a pig. I do not need to dilate my nostrils - just to stop them collapsing when I inhale. This device would be perfect if only it came in a much smaller size.If it came in a smaller size I would rate it 10 but because the smallest size is way too big for me, I am only giving it an 8.
Works well sometimes

If my nostrils are congested but not running, Nasdil works well: it helps me to breath and I quickly forget it is there. If my nose is running, Nasdil quickly gets blocked and doesn't really help. So I am learning when to use it, and when to rely on other methods, such as raising my head on extra pillows (when makes sleeping a bit harder, but at least it helps my nose).
Excellent nasal dilator

I've used the Snore no more and while it does help for a better night sleep, its too uncomfortable to wear for me. Often can't get it in without pain and even then I take it out when asleep.Nasdil on the other hand is extremely comfortable. If you put it in sometime before you go to sleep you forget its there and its much less likely you'll take it out. I have narrow airways in my nose that collapse on deep breathing. This device totally prevents it, definitely gives me better sleep.
Simple device, excellent results

At age 61 my snoring problem had increased, disturbing both my own sleep and my husband's, to the point of using a spare bedroom. I was also struggling with lethargy, weariness in the morning, unable to cope well with housework and very occasionally would doze for half an hour during the daytime. We suspected sleep apnoea but didn't know much about the treatment, bar the methodology of using jaw-adjusters and mouthguards. I took the self-tests on this website and two items were recommended; one was a jaw device and the other was Nasdil. It was then that I learned I had a deviated septum in my nose, and that the walls of my nose collapsed during breathing (through the nose). It is something I had never been fully aware of. The first night using the Nasdil device was a minor revelation, because for the first time ever I was able to breathe larger volumes of air through my nose; I had never found it particularly easy but had always accepted my present "rate" as normal. As a result....no snoring. Two weeks on, I have noticed an improvement in my overall daytime wakefulness as well. The device itself is fairly easy to insert, however I have a small nose and the bridge part is too large for me; it just sticks out, while the two tubes are comfortably in place. I wouldn't therefore wear one during the daytime. However, at night, appearances aren't important! I have found that six to seven hours' use is fine, I wake anyway around 6am and take it out. Takes a little getting used to at first, but I now drop off to sleep pretty easily with it in place. Would highly recommend for ease of nose-breathing, and potential snore-cure, don't be put off even if you have a small nose like me.

I've only had this product a very short time so it is difficult to evaluate it properly at this stage. It was delivered very quickly and seems a good quality product for the money. I purchased it because my family were complaining about disturbed sleep because of my noisy snoring. I was also wakened by it during the night and had a headache and dry mouth on waking. I took the snore test and believe I am a mouth-breather. My family now say my snoring has lessened, and some nights there is little or no noise, also I am waking up less during the night.My mouth doesn't feel quite so dry in the morning and headaches have lessened.The device is easy to insert but wearing it all night can be a bit uncomfortable as it seems to rub a bit on one nostril. Quite honestly I don't use it every night because of this and because the external bridge is bigger than expected, causing discomfort when changing sleeping positions, especially lying on my side.It may just need to settle in a bit and to soften and I need to adjust to the idea of wearing a device while sleeping. Overall it is worth trying.

My objective was to reduce/avoid dry mouth sleeping at night. My post first week assessment is that the device needs to be used in conjunction with adjusted sleeping habits i.e. initial nasal spray, a nasal clearing habit (see online/Youtube) and an effort to keep your tongue in the roof of the mouth (which is not possible when sleeping on one's back - hence you need to sleep on your side). I usually lose the Nasdil half way through the night - not sure that hunting for a purple version will be any more successful in the dark than looking for a clear rubber version! I have had some improvement but reckon that you have to work all aspects of the issue, Nasdil won't just swing it. The wife doesn't complain about my snoring now - but that's 'cos I am developing my technique in another bedroom!

I've tried this twice now.The first time I woke many times during the night with a very dry and uncomfortable nose. For the second attempt, I 'lubricated' the device in an attempt to stave off the dryness. This was a bit better, but I have left it on the shelf since.I will probably try again, as it does achieve its function of keeping the airways open at night, but unless I can get used to the discomfort, I fear it will be just another 'gadget' to sit unused in the bathroom cupboard!
