Sinus Buster Capsaicin Nasal Spray Review

Sinus Buster Capsaicin Nasal Spray

Does it Work?

Sinus Buster Capsaicin Nasal Spray is a natural remedy for sinus, allergy and headache sufferers. Capsaicin is a botanical extract derived from cayenne pepper which has been known for it’s benefits in relieving pain and congestion. Sinus Buster is a specially formulated capsaicin nasal spray used to clear up a stuffy nose, relieve sinus pressure and possibly even benefit cluster headache sufferers.  Having struggled with sinus and nasal congestion problems myself, I’ve written reviews on many other natural and prescription drug remedies including, Nasonex, Neilmed Sinus Rinse, Alkalol and Patanase. All four of these products have been somewhat helpful, but not perfect, and in the case of Nasonex and Patanase, there are far too many long term side effects associated with prescription drugs to make me feel comfortable using them on a long term basis. I suspected the Nasonex was making me feel irritable and bothering my stomach. Since discontinuing the use of Nasonex,  I felt better in every way except sinus congestion, particularly while trying to sleep at night. Their addictive properties make over-the-counter-nasal-sprays out of consideration for me. I decided to look for something natural and new to use along with the Neilmed Sinus rinse every day and found Sinus Buster at my local Walmart drug aisle among the decongestants. I’ve heard about the effectiveness of Capsaicin, so decided to pay the $12.00 and give Sinus Buster a try.

Sinus Buster: Does it Work?

Consider this a preliminary review. I’ve only just started using Sinus Buster, so I plan on giving you my long term impression of it after a couple of weeks use or more. I can say pretty, confidently, that sinus buster will give instant relief to a stuffed up nose. The question is, how long will the relief last. I cam home with the Sinus Buster feeling only slightly congested. Just one spray in the nostril provided me with an intense burning sensation, much as if I really had squirted cayenne pepper up your nose. The burning part was only slightly unpleasant and actually began to feel good after I felt the hot capsaicin nasal spray relieving the congestion in my nostrils. The effect you feel from Sinus Buster is not that much unlike eating a hot bowl of green chili sauce or a hot red pepper. It makes you sweat a little and clears up your nose! I took two more sprays of the sinus buster before bed and had one, very good night sleep. I will sometimes randomly experience these nights of sleep where my nasal passages are clear, so its too soon to tell if the capsaicin nasal spray played a role in it or not. Check back soon, for a more long term review on Sinus Buster Capsaicin Nasal Spray.

  1. 10 Days Later: I am very encouraged by how well Sinus Buster has been working up to this point: Just a sniff of the Sinus Buster in each nasal passage and I’ve been sleeping through the night with clear sinuses. The other day, when I felt a slight sinus headache coming on, I used the Sinus Buster in the morning. The pressure seemed to vanish and I ended up having no head ache at all that day.

    I did come down with something on just the 2nd night of using Sinus Buster: I woke up with chills, fever and a non-sinus related headache. I was feverish the next day. I don’t suspect the Sinus Buster caused the problem, but just to be cautious, I’ve stopped sniffing it so deeply up my nasal passages. Strangely enough, I was completely well just a day later. I don’t know if the Sinus Buster had anything to do with the chills and fever that night, but I’ve decided to be careful with how deeply I breathe it in. So, a word of warning: Be gentle using this. It is pretty strong, so any kind of irritation in your sinus passages could be enough to cause an irritation of some sort or maybe even set off a lurking sinus infection.

    I’ve used Sinus Buster every day since and have experienced nothing but clear nasal passages and easy breathing through the nose. 10 Days is still soon to be absolutely sure of anything. I will report back in another 10 days – hopefully with fewer sinus headaches and continued, clear breathing.

  2. I’m on my third bottle of Sinus Buster since the writing of this article and all I can say is, wow. Sinus Buster has done a more effective job than any of the nasal steroids like Nasonex that I’ve been taking for the last several years. Unlike Nasonex and other prescription products, Sinus Buster has absolutely no side effects other than a quick burning sensation when it is first sprayed in your nostrils. The cost of Sinus Buster is about $11.00 per bottle which is cheaper than buying Nasonex with my Co-Pay. One bottle lasts me about 5 weeks. I usually take one spray in each nostril in the morning and one before bed time; right after using the Sinus Rinse. (The Sinus Rinse is not absolutely necessary – I do it because it feels good.) At any rate, my nasal passages are 90% more clear when I sleep at night than they have ever been.

    If you just started using Sinus Buster, give it time to work. The benefits seem to be accumulative over time. I don’t feel as though I got the full benefit until the 3rd or 4th week of using it twice a day consistently. Sinus Buster really seems to help with your sense of smell, too. It is a remarkable way to start the mornings.

    I can’t say for sure if Sinus Buster has helped with my headaches, but it has certainly relieved the constant suffering from sinus infections and has most definitely solved the problem of stuffiness in the right nasal passage disturbing a good night’s sleep.

    If you’ve used Sinus Buster, please let us know your symptoms and how this product has worked for you.

  3. I found your website perfect for my needs. It contains wonderful and helpful posts. Carry on this work. In the end, I would like to thank you for making such a nice website.

  4. I had a very bad sinus infection recently, and nothing seemed to be working. It was as if my nasal cavity had been filled with solid concrete. Tried all sorts of OTC products containing various chemicals such as Loratadine, Diphenhydramine, Phenylephrine, Levmetamfetamine, Guaifenesin, and Oxymetazoline. Seriously, NOTHING nudged my nasal passages open one iota.

    Then I saw a product called Sinus Buster. which claimed to be non-addictive and without rebound effects. The main ingredient listed was Capsicum Annuum (Capsaicin), something I’d never heard of. Well, nothing to lose by trying it, right? Sadly, Sinus Buster, by itself, failed right along with the other products I’d tried. But it sure did BURN the hell out of nose and make my eyes water when I used it. Wooo!! Felt like I was snorting cayenne pepper.

    After 4 days of using a “cocktail” of several medicines, I finally started to get some relief, but of course can’t say which medicines are responsible for the relief. I found this website tonight when I decided to look up the words “capsicum” and “capsaicin” to see if I could find a reason why Sinus Buster burns so bad when using it. I LMAO’d when I discovered that by using Sinus Buster, I am indeed squirting cayenne pepper up my nose.

    One thing I think can be attributed to Sinus Buster. When you have a runny nose, it’s almost always a thin clear fluid. Sinus Buster seems to stop most of the runny nose problem by turning that thin clear fluid into a thicker yellow mucus that can easily be blown out.
