Most wonderful product. When you are in the public and perfumes and colognes are Issues along with Diesel fumes, etc. it sure makes a difference when you can breathe and not have to be sneezing your head off. The only problem I have with this medication is the cost. Virtually prohibitive on a limited income without insurance.
