Sarcastic Sid
Can someone explain why the neti pot doesn't work for me, am i doing it wrong?
I heard abou tthis neti pot so i bought one i used it for the past three days and nothing has changed, my sinuses are still just as clogged as they were before. I use room temp water, the salt packed they gave me, and fill the neti pot up to the instructed measurement with tap water. WHY ISNT IT WORKING! do you need to give it more time? please help thanks
Additional Details
I used it once for the past three days(including today i just used it 15 min ago. but I don't feel any different. DOes it take more time maybe a week?

why so serious â„¢
that thing is sooo dumb
and gross
dont waste your time trying to figure it out.
its soooo weird.
it didnt work for me or my dad either.
they are weir.d.

Actually AMARIEK has a good point.
First, are you getting the salt solution into your nose, or is your nose so congested that it's not going in (mostly spilling back out)? If it's going in, you should feel it run down the back of your throat also. If your nose is too congested for the solution to go in, it will not be able to rinse out all of the stuff and help the swelling go down. If the swelling in your nose doesn't go down, the sinus will not be able to drain.
If you think your nose is too congested, you can try using Afrin nasal spray in each nostril 30 min before you use the neti pot each day. But DON'T use the Afrin for more than 3 or 4 days or your nose will block up more.
Your other option is to use a different way of getting the salt solution in. Something like this one is more of a spray: http://www.entsolwash.com/.
And finally, make sure your doctor has looked at you because there might be something else going on and that's why it's not working.

Are you tilting your head so the water runs to the other side and comes out the other nostril? Give it a little longer. Since they gave you the salt pack I'm assuming it isn't iodized salt, because you shouldn't use iodized. Neti pots are a good natural remedy.
If it doesn't work maybe your sinus are badly infected and you made need the help of a doctor. See a good DO(osteopathic doctor). They are now covered by insurance. There are many natural cures for sinus problems, including acupuncture.

I have one too and I used it about a week ago and now I am sicker than ever. I think it is a crock and my husband got a real kick out of watching me use it. I say stick with saline spray or worst case Afrin.

I have horrible sinuses too and so I tried it... and it didn't work either. I ended up going to a Ear Nose and Throat doctor and found out that my nasal passage is 90% blocked and that's why the neti pot wouldn't work.. He gave me some antihistamines and that really helped... you should consider going to a doctor.

Truth be Told
Never used one because it hurts too much when I get water in my sinuses...

If you have an infection (the cold), that takes time. How frequently are you using it? Every hour? Are you sterilizing it between uses or just using it to reinfect youself?

I would try repeating it several times until you achieve a clear passage, then try to keep it clear.

boo hoo
Dr. Oz was demonstrating this on Oprah and people swear by it. Maybe you are doing something wrong.

Perhaps you should give it more time but I had the same problem and was found to have sinus blockages which nothing but surgery will remedy.
Go to a doc and let him have a look see.

the bells today
Well, I think the neti pot or any way you go about cleansing your nose of allergens and clogging, only works well if you don't already have an infection going on up there. You may have a sinus infection, which would require a possible round of antibiotics (ugh). Or maybe you really haven't given it enough time(?) Try steaming your face along with the nose rinses. If it doesn't clear, do see your doctor. Hope you feel better.
