    Addendum To My Earlier Post About 'Guaifenesin'

    Today I feel like for the first time I used the

    netipot the way I should use it. What I usually did was to tilt my head sidewise but then the salt water would not reach deep into my sinuses. Today I tilted my head back and used the netipot that way. It was even worse an experience than usual, but I feel like it reached much...
