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 !!
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).

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!
Does what you'd expect, but didn't help me.

For £9 you get a small piece of silicone rubber in a fancy case. Stick it up your nose and it does dilate your nostrils, so if your breathing is normally impaired it does help with this. Unfortunately it didn't stop me snoring. Also I had a tendency to remove it in my sleep, as I do with earplugs. Overall disappointed it didn't do more, and at £9 its not particularly good value for what it is.
Good, but not the answer for me...

I did the snore tests and decided to try this remedy first. I have slightly occluded nostrils and a massive, fat tongue. The Nasdil fits the nostrils snugly and certainly increases airflow. Very infrequently falls out.For me, nasal dilation was not the answer as evidenced by no change in snore score on the iPhone app Snore Lab which I have been using to track my success. So the next cure on the list is the MAD - see my review of Tomed SomnoGuard3. The Nasdil is not redundant though - it is also advertised for sports and I sometimes use it on the indoor bike trainer where it has some positive effect. My toddler amusingly referred to it as "nose goggles".
It works, but!

I have always suffered from one or both nostrils blocking up when I lay down and try to sleep? This device does in fact give you a nice clear passage of air when inserted, however , I did find it a little uncomfortable and on a couple of occasions it had fallen out overnight. If you can keep it in and get used to it it will provide a better nights sleep and cut down on the snoring ( much to the relief of my wife).

A brilliant product that has achieved success in my battle against snoring, when I can keep it in. The problem is that the item is so uncomfortable it's hard to wear it during your sleep. I regular have to wake up in the night and re-insert the item as I have unintentionally dislodged it in my sleep due to the discomfort it causes. If you can sleep with Nasdil in place through the hole night then it has to be the best product on the market in the battle to eliminate snoring.
