Breathe Right nasal strips are warmly recommended by sleep doctors as an effective and affordable solution for reducing and eliminating snoring caused by blockages of nasal airway passages. They are suitable for snorers who suffer from nasal congestion caused by a deviated septum, colds, and allergies, as well as nighttime congestion.
While there is no doubt that Breathe Right strips are an excellent snoring remedy, it is wise to look into potential side effects before making a purchase. That is why we have done extensive research and collected all the relevant information about the possible side effects of Breathe Right nasal strips.
As Safe As It Gets
Our experience in reviewing snoring aids has taught us that there are two major sources that should be consulted when establishing the existence of side effects of a snoring aid: one is user experience and the other – scientific data. After sifting through piles of Breathe Right user reviews, we were happy to conclude that even the users who left negative reviews reported no major side effects. However, a few of them did mention that they suffered from transient skin irritations. The main reasons for irritations were highly sensitive skin and allergy to adhesive chemicals. It should be noted that the adhesive used in the production of Breathe Right nasal strips is medically safe and not too strong, which is why skin irritations caused by Breathe Right are rather uncommon.
In order to obtain further, more reliable evidence, we turned to a clinical study published in the European Journal of Medical Research. According to the results of this clinical trial, Breathe Right nasal strips led to a reduction in snoring intensity in 22 out of 30 participants during the second treatment. Furthermore, the researchers reported no adverse effects, except for one subject, who had a mild reaction to the strips. Namely, the subject felt the need to sneeze for a brief time after the first application. The researchers concluded that the strips were safe to use and that they produced the best results in habitual mild snorers.
Based on the information acquired, we can say that both users and medical researchers agree that Breathe Right nasal strips are safe and have no major side effects. However, if you are allergic to adhesive chemicals, you should talk to your doctor before using any kind of nasal strips.
