works almost as intended
Generally lasts 8 hours, sometimes more. I have to periodically use saline solution spray to reduce acidity. So far its the only nasal spray I can use repeatedly, without it stopping working and making my condition worse.

Works Great
I tend to prefer the the generic over the name brand, For some reason it works better for me. I have tried it over and over, but it's always the same. I never use it longer than recommended and it always gives me the relief I need.
