Q.173 - I am pregnant and have sinusitis. I want to use the NetiPot, but am worried that I may swallow the solution, is it dangerous during pregnancy? Can I just use distilled water without the solution?

NeilMed Sinus Rinse is absolutely safe during the pregnancy and during breast feeding.  Please do not use only distilled water as it will burn a lot.  The distilled water or pure water is hypotonic, not isotonic, and can irritate your nasal passages.
