4-0 out of 5 stars Works well but very noisy!
This air purifier works very well to eliminate dust, polllen, etc. from the room.The auto detector kicks it into higher speeds when impurities are discovered -- very cool!It is extremely loud, however.It is essesntially a three-speed fan and its noise level is comparable to a medium-sized fan.We turn it off at night because it's in our master bedroom and keeps us awake a night.I'm pretty sure mose machines like this will create a similar noise level, so I still give it a high score.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very happy with my purchase of 2
I recently had to deal with my son's allergies becoming so bad that he was close to having pneumonia due to a variety of factors, which included some animal dander.As part of the process for ridding the house of all possible airborne allergens, I purchased 2 of these air purifiers and couldn't be happier with them.I've read some reviews indicating that the units are noisy, but unless they are cycling on high in order to clean the air faster after detecting particles in the air, the noise hasn't been a factor for me.My son now feels "back to normal" after two weeks of serious medical intervention.I chose the unit because of the UV light to help kill bacteria in the air and the filtration system.I would (and have) recommended this product to anyone who suffers from airborne allergens.The price here is about half of what it is at major retailers, which helps as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great purifier
I got in on this unit when it was 99.99.I deliberately chose a 350 sq ft model for my small room so i could leave it on whisper.The model gives off a somewhat loud fan noise.It isn't that quiet, but it's considered WHITE noise.I am a very light whisper (I wake up when my phone is on vibrate) and I sleep even better with it on as it blocks other noises.As for it's purifying ability, it's great.I have asthma and when i went home during the weekends, my asthma used to always act up during the night.ALL WENT AWAY when I got this baby.I breathe really easily now, especially at night in my room.I can't believe I lived so long without this thing!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very effective, and NOT noisy
Compared to other air purifiers we've used the Hamilton Beach is very effective, and NOT noisy -- at least on low speed.We have two (one for each bedroom in an 900 sq. ft. apartment), and keep them on low speed overnight just to mask other noises (primarily neighbors and street traffic).It's a soothing white noise, not high pitched at all.I'm not sure if some of these other reviewers got bad units or if they're just sensitive to noise in general.

We had a real dust problem in the apartment until we got these units.Now we sleep much better, and no longer wake up every morning with dry itchy throats.Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars great, but geesh. LOUD.
On the "whisper" mode, it is still extremely loud. On the highest mode, it's so loud it is hilarious, but is only meant as "quick clean". If you've cooked something that smells horrible, maybe? I've noticed a difference in air quality for the better. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars An OK buy.
Very small - runs on one double A battery - and the attachments (although they may appear to be of a soft, rubber-like material, are actually a hard plastic. Its not sturdily built, but it's not a bad buy for the price. I gave two of my friends back massages when I bought it, and they thought it was very comfortable. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you really want to quit smoking,you need this.
In the twelve years I was a smoker I honestly believed it would be impossible to stop.I was so in love with smoking that I used to joke that I would quit when I was dead.When I finally decided that I was fed up with cigarettes once and for all (the cost, the stench, the heavy breath, the smoking bans, on and on) I gave this a try.Previously I had attempted to stop twice before, half-heartedly, using the patch and again with some sort of nonsensical herbal concoction.Both a waste of money. They just weren't strong enough for the chain smoker I was.I actually read reviews of the lozenge here and was convinced to try it. So I set my quit date and bought a box. It was a bit of a gamble since they aren't cheap but neither are cigarettes in NJ anymore. Does it work? Oh yeah, it works.

It doesn't just curb the craves it eliminates them. I went from needing two packs of cigarettes a day to having virtually no desire to even look at them anymore.I'm still stunned.They do work and they work magnificently. One thing I like about them, they dissolve very slowly in your mouth which actually helps to alleviate the oral fixation in the absence of a cigarette.

But be warned: Nothing replaces will power.You really need to want to quit. The lozenge is not a magic bullet but if you do decide to quit they are your best weapon. There is, however, a risk of developing an addiction to lozenges so it's incredibly important to FOLLOW DIRECTIONS and wean yourself off them according to the schedule provided.4mg is a very strong shot of nicotine. Also if you swallow them or bite them you'll be treated to some very nasty heartburn and hiccups.

Basically, if you follow the program and reinforce the desire to get rid of the smokes with a support group you WILL quit smoking. Trust me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
My husband smoked three packs a day, and has smoked for 43 years.With the help of Commit he has been smoke-free for 28 days now, and still counting.For him, that's a long time.Some days are easier than others but he is determined and has finally found something that really helps him.

5-0 out of 5 stars Commit to Stop Smoking!
Excellent product. I had to stop using the patches after 10 days the last time I tried to stop smoking because I was becoming more and more allergic.

I have been free of cigarettes for two weeks now using Commit as my aid and the results have been amazing:
1. I no longer desire cigarettes at all.
2. I've had no reactions. However a cautionary note is please read the directions. Commit is to be absorbed in the tissues of the mouth; not the stomach. I didn't read the directions on my first experience and got a tummy ache. Used correctly, there have been no adverse reactions.
3. The directions say use at least nine a day at first. I have been fine using about five and have gone several hours at a time without it (I was a one pack a day smoker). However, utilization may be different for each individual.
4. The taste is acceptable and as I stated above....the results outstanding!

By the way, Amazon also offers the lowest price anywhere. I recommend this product highly!


5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful aid, but you better have your mind made up
As with any aid to quit smoking, the real test is yourself, is your mind truly made up to quit?? Mine was, I work out on a treadmill and while I still smoked, well into the workout my heart rate was topping off at about 140 bpm, after quitting and starting on the Commit program, it wasn't long my heart rate during the same workout was down to 128!! This along with the high cost of cigerettes, not to mention overall health, was enough for me not to wait for some iron lung device 5 yrs from now. I am 52 now and have smoked for some 35 odd years so this was no small task for me. My point is, my mind was made up, and with the aid of this lozenge, which by the way really does take care of the nicotine withdrawal, and was a very powerful aid in helping me to quit. I am in the 9th week now of the program without a cigerette and I have no desire for one, I have cut back on the lozenges to the point where I don't even much think of them anymore, pop one in just to stay with the program. Lolipops help with the fixation to have something in my hand. All in all I give this item a two thumbs up, but don't expect them to do it for you! One other thing, as with anything, don't blame the lozenge for dependancy on it, you can get addicted to just about anything, just cut back gradually like they tell you, and stick with the program.

One last thing, amazon beat my local grocery store, a LARGE chain by the way, by $10 per box!

4-0 out of 5 stars Clearly showed ovulation, but question accuracy of temps
Charting the temperatures taken by this thermometer clearly showed me which day I ovulated.It was also clear which day my next cycle would start because of the drop in temperature.I'm not sure how accurate the individual temperatures are though.Every sample BBT chart I am able to find, including the one that comes with the thermometer, has 96.9 as the lowest possible temperature.My pre-ovulation temp was usually lower than that (96.2 - 96.6).The instructions state that you should have three consecutive hours of sleep before taking your waking temperature and I rarely sleep that well.Perhaps this is the cause of my low temperatures.I've also read that basal thermometers should measure hundredths and this one only measures tenths.At any rate, my cycle has a clear trend so the themometer does its job.

When you turn on the thermometer, a light comes on and the previous temperature that was taken and stored in memory is displayed.The light then goes off and you can take your temperature.The thermometer beeps while measuring your temp.It usually beeps about ten to fifteen times for me and then a long beeping sound lets me know it is done.At this point, you can press the button, the light comes on and your temperature is displayed.The thermometer then turns off.It will automatically turn off later if you forget.The beeping does not wake my husband and since I take my temperature very early (around 4:30 AM when it is still dark), I find that the beeps help to keep me awake.

5-0 out of 5 stars i can't believe anyone would complain about the beeping!
if this beeping wakes your husband up or prevents you from falling back asleep i pray to god you don't have traffic going down your street in the morning!a passing car would make more noise than this thermometer!great buy, i've checked it against my glass thermometer and it's very accurate and fast.highly recomended.

1-0 out of 5 stars VERY Annoying Thermometer
This thermometer drives me & my husband crazy! It beeps constantly while it's taking the temperature, concluding with a series of rapid beeps. I miss my old thermometer that beeped only once at the end.

I usually wake up for the first time in the morning a couple of hours before our alarm goes off, and I take my temperature then. With our previous thermometer it was no big deal to do it that way, but this noisy thermometer wakes us both up and we have trouble falling back asleep afterwards.

Definitely avoid this thermometer if constant beeping noises bother you first thing in the morning!

5-0 out of 5 stars a great little tool
I bought this thermometer about a month ago and have been using it to take my basal body temperature every morning. I think it is a wonderful product. Although some reviews said the beep was annoying, I think it is actually a very important feature. It beeps to let you know it is placed correctly. I sure like the peace of mind when I hear that. The display is lit and very easy to read.

I can not believe that someone said she had to run into bathroom to check her temp,because she did not want to wake her husband. Come on! The beep is not loud at all. And..didn't she know that basal temp should be taken the first thing in the morning without any unnecessary movements? I think husbands should actually help wives take basal temp by inserting the thermometre into their wives' mouths. This way, we can reduce our movements to minimum! My husband does this for me everyday!

One more suggestion for those who want to keep your latest result in the thermometre's memory for more than one reviewing. Whenever you turn on the thermometre to review the result, turn it off BEFORE the display begins to flash. After it flashes, it will become blank and ready for your next test. Your last temp will not be there any more. As long as you shut it off before it flashes, your latest result will always be there till you take your basal temp next time.

By the way, 1/10 degree F is precise enough for basal temp. Non-basal temp thermometres are 2/10. 1/100 is not necessary at all since on basal temp chart, we only record like 97.6, 98.2...

Hope this helps. I like this thermometre very much. Hope you will like it too.

5-0 out of 5 stars I've had 2 and LOVE them
If you are going to chart, you NEED a reliable basal body therm. This one is my personal favorite. I like how it beeps to let me know it is in the right place and when it is done.
Those who prefer to drift back to sleep after temping or have a hubby who sleeps lightly may not like it as well though ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I LoVE THESETHINGS!
Okay, I know and have heard it a thousand times "don't put them in your ears."

But I love doing it. It feels so awesome and clean and personal.

Now there is one issue to really be careful about, and that is this: I used to surf alot,
and all of a sudden I started to feel like I had water in my ears all the time.

It was so bad that I went to a doctor to check up on it. He told me that I had
scraped away all the protective wax inside my ear canal, and that's why my ears
were getting saturated with water. He advised me to back off on the amount of
times I used the qtips inside my ears. I did, and the condition went away, and
everything returned to normal, which it still is to this day many years later.

The key is that you can't use them in your ears too often, or else you scrape away
the way. I AM NOT ADVISING ANYONE TO STICK THESE IN THEIR EARS!!!
BUT, if you do it, don't do it too much.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product for a zillion years...
There's a reason why these guys have been around for years.Their quality and price have made them the best value there is for cotton swabs.They do the job, however interesting that that may be, and come back for more.They're indispensable if you have a baby or young children, but they grow with you into adulthood as well.There's some things you shouldn't buy the generic and this is one of them.They've been around for years and for good reason - they're great!

4-0 out of 5 stars Gettin' on the 'tip...
Good God-- you know you've hit the bottom of the barrel as an Amazon customer reviewer when you're inspired to write a review for Q-Tips ! In my case, the inspiration struck during my last trip to the can... which was just a short while ago as of this writing, BTW. Yep, I was just sittin' there doin' my... er, thing... when I noticed the blue box of double-tipped cotton swaps peekin' out of the far corner of the medicine cabinet. I stared at the thing for a good ten seconds, all the while thinkin' about what I'd say about the product. After mappin' it all out I got my business over with, washed my hands, and rushed to my word processor to type up the following commentary:

While just about everybody have discovered the earwax removing properties ofQ-Tips (don't forget to observe the "Don't go into the ear canal" rule, please), I've also found them useful for forcing sneezes to help clear out a runny nose & stuffed-up sinuses. And yes, I am aware that I'm likely risking some kind of physical damage by doin' this, which is why I recommend you NOT try it! The last thing I need is to be sued by some yutz who tried to get himself to sneeze with a Q-Tip and hurt himself!

With the assistance of rubbing alcohol, Q-Tips are also pretty good for cleanin' out an "innie" (a rubbing alcohol-covered cotton ball would be a better option if your "innie" is particularly cavernous), removing collected food & dandruff deposits from those hard-to-reach recesses of a computer keyboard, and gettin' those last few specks of crud off the rollers inside a computer mouse. Please note, however, that rubbing alcohol gradually dissolves the stuff that holds the cotton to the swab stick, so you'd better have a decent handful at the ready for those extensive computer peripheral cleanups...

5-0 out of 5 stars A MULTI-PURPOSE LITTLE COTTON SWAB...
If one wants cotton swabs that are made with a hundred percent pure cotton and have more soft cotton at the tip than any other brand, then this is the cotton swab one wants. With five hundred of these little things at one's disposal, they will last for a considerable length of time.

These cotton swabs are ideal for a number of uses. While the most common and popular use consists of sticking it in one's ears and giving the Q-tip a twirl in an attempt to clean them, one should be mindful that they are not designed to enter one's ear canal. In fact , the manufacturer cautions the buyer to only gently swab around the outer surface of the ears, if the swabs are used to clean ears.

Still,there are many other uses. In my household, these cotton swabs are often used for applying eye shadow, as well. I also used it when polishing furniture. If one has furniture that has carving, which is notorious for attracting dust and dirt in tight spots, dipping these handy, dandy little cotton swabs in lemon oil and then applying the soaked swab to those pesky little nooks and crannies, inherent in any carved piece, will remove that otherwise hard to reach dust, dirt, and grime.

Anyway, at this price one should not hesitate to buy these multi-purpose cotton swabs, as they are a good value and guaranteed to give the buyer a lot of bang for one's buck.

5-0 out of 5 stars An audiophile archaelogist's dream
Truly, these q-tips have to be one of the greatest wonders of the 20th century. You just stick it in the ear and dig through, much like the special drilling machines dug their way to make the Chunnelbetween France and England. The tips are soft and the sticks are flexible allowing for extra precision when you can't quite reach for the holy of holies. Expereinced users have been known to derive much pleasure out of these tips and even excavated so much cerumen as that it was able to determine their age by the color graduations. They surely are superior to the arms of your eyeglasses' frame or your trusty old Black & Decker drill. Only trouble is, when your wife will ask you to take out the garbage, set the table or perform one of countless chores that wives want their husbands to do, you won't be able to say "What?!!!?...I can't hear you" anymore.

3-0 out of 5 stars Caution: contains Blue#1
On commercials for cold medicine, at the doctor's, at the pharmacy -- they always say in a deep authorative voice: "...when you have a COLD be SURE to drink LOTS of LIQUIDS!"

Why?

To be graphic for a moment, if you have a cold (or the flu), and get dehydrated, mucus is like glue. It is hard to cough up glue! "LOTS of LIQUIDS!!" keeps all the crud fluid and moving. Wow! It is just like rocket science! :-) (Or maybe Math!!! Wow!!)

Guaifenesin helps the "LOTS of LIQUIDS!!" out. (But you still need the liquids!!) Guaifenesin is the active ingredient in cough syrup, Robetussin, Niquil, Humibid and this drug, Mucinex.

This pill makes getting Guaifenesin easy: One pill every 12 hours -- compared to two spoons of cough syrup every 4-6 hours. (With LOTS of LIQUIDS!!)

Also good news! In my price comparisons, Mucinex has been cheaper than an equal dosages of even the store-brand cough syrup. In my shopping, it has not been cheaper than generic, fast-acting guaifenesin tablets or Humibid tho'.

One major caveat for the allergy-prone among us, Muxinex contains Blue #1 -- a dye. Blue #1 is probably still better for you than cough syrup -- A.K.A. red-dye-laced sugar syrup. (YUM!!!) But! Blue #1 is an useless addition to an essential medicine. Who cares if the pills are blue?

I use 400MG Humibid caplets. It is dye-free and vanilla-flavored. It is about the same price -- or a little cheaper than this medication -- depending on the size of the bottle and whether you need to take it every day (a 100 count bottle good) or just when you have a cold (50 tablets plenty!). The over-the-counter version of Humibid is not "long acting" -- but it is easy for me to pack 1 tablet for a lunch-time dose if I am wheezed up that bad.

Two questions:

#1 How much is "LOTS of LIQUIDS!!"? For an adult, that is about 8 ounces every hour. Good choices are water, soup, or juice. You can also drink caffeine-free soda or sports drinks -- I don't need that much sugar. Fruits work too: applesauce, melons, grapes are all good sources of moisture. I have found it is good to, once an hour, imagine myself in a desert... for days... and then chug-a-lug a glass of water. It is amazing how good the water tastes!

#2 How do I know all this? I have asthma. It is exacerbated by colds or the flu. I ended up in the hospital w/pneumonia when I was 24 because I didn't drink "LOTS of LIQUIDS!!" Duh!! One of my more bright and shining moments! :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the one to get!
I have been using Mucinex brand Guaifensin for several months now, with amazing results for my fibromyalgia. Just when I thought nothing would work, Mucinex has "Got me off my back" - I feel like I am getting my life back. This is a great price - but couldn't we have it in the 100 tablet size? I have been buying it elsewhere - so I know it's available. BTW - Amazon's price is the best price I have seen anywhere! (Please don't raise it)

5-0 out of 5 stars Guifenesin for Fibromyalgia
After using guifenesin for almost a year and a half, my fibromyalgia symptoms are amazingly improved. But you definitely need to follow the protocol correctly or you will be wasting your money. You need the book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia Fatigue" because it gives the necessary directions.
Links are not allowed by Amazon in reviews, but if you do a google search for Dr. St Amand's "fibromyalgia treatment center", you will find all the information you need along with a support group that is crowded with people who are finding help using guifeneson.

I use the Extended-Release because it is working and I don't want to lose time trying the other kinds, but if you are just beginning, a lot of people are being helped by the fast acting guifeneson.

As for me, I will buy guaifenesin and do without other things in order to continue getting my life back from this life sapping condition!

3-0 out of 5 stars Mucinex OK, good Amazon price, bad deal all around
I have chronic sinus problems, and have recently been diagnosed with the early stages of emphysema at the tender age of 25.Yikes.I frequently took LA Guaifenesin tablets 1200mg and better for lung/sinus congestion and find that for thinning my thick junk, accept no substitutes.Then, the advent of the OTC guaifenesin.Nobody in my town carries it regularly, there's only one variety of extended release available on the market, and my health insurance does not cover OTC medications (I could get a month of Guaifenesin LA for < $5.00 USD.)I'm glad someone stepped up to the plate and made an OTC guaifenesin so that people could have access to it, and it's a good formulation, but all in all Mucinex is just another symptom of the patent abuse common in pharmaceuticals.They didn't reinvent the wheel, and there were people already manufacturing it in extended-release form in over-the-counter strength, yet now we have to wait a few years before there will be an affordable long-acting OTC.I got sick of it and bought half a kilogram of pharmaceutical grade Guaifenesin for about $42 shipped.

Although this product seems really effective for treatment of Fibromyalgia, the 40 count bottle makes guaifenesin expensive.I prefer the 400 mg capsules that cost only one third as much; try Google for it or look for the guaifenesin 100 count bottles--it is more affordable. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver!
I've been using two of these and the larger one in my bedroom, home office and livingroom for about a week now. The change in me and my son's allergy problems is just short of miraculous!The whisper quiet is just fine -- in fact, I think the sound helps lull me into deep sleep.My allergy problems haven't totally disappeared, but they are sooo much better and my son's have totally disappeared.The cat gets to stay! :-))

1-0 out of 5 stars Didn't work out of the box
I just got this unit today, April 7th, 2005, and was pretty excited about it since i have ashthma.Anyway, it worked for a few hours. At that time, everything was nice and all.The unit isn't bad looking and worked impressively for a good price.However, then i opened the grill to test out the filter detector and the unit turns off as expected.However, the unit refused to turn back on after the grill was replaced...I referred to the manual and made sure everything was set up correctly and it was.Poor quality control.. stay away from this unit.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this thing!
For as long as I can remember, I've coughed myself to sleep; my allergies act up primarily when I'm lying down, and I haven't found any allergy medication I can really tolerate.I figured I'd give this a shot, although I had no experience with air purifiers before.

The morning after the first night I used it I realized that I had not coughed at all while going to sleep.I no longer cough when I lie down; also I have a fan that I run frequently that used to get caked with dust, and I noticed now that there's almost no dust at all on the blades.I have two cats, and this apartment also seems to collect dust, and I can say for sure that this product has been EXTREMELY helpful.

It is never completely silent; on the lowest setting there' s sort of a "white noise" effect.It took me a couple nights to get used to it; I don't notice it at all anymore.However, at the highest setting it is noisy; but I have it running on automatic and it almost never goes into the highest setting.One thing I thought was funny at first, is that the sensor is so accurate that I can be standing in the bathroom, using some hair spray, and the purifier (located in the living room) will immediately kick into high gear.If you want to be sure that you're not awakened in the middle of the night, I wouldn't suggest leaving it on automatic, since there is the off chance that it could kick into high and the noise might wake you up.

There is a very slight breeze that comes from the front grill; however, this is not a problem for me because I do not have itpositioned so it is facing me directly.

All in all, I am extremely satisfied with this product, and it is much better than I expected for the price I paid.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I thought based on reviews
The main reason I got the cleaner was to help clean up the odors in my one bedroom apt. Well, it doesn't seem it does that particularly well, as after leaving it running full blast in my living room over night, I could still detect some of the odor from what I had cooked the night before.

I also got the unit to help me a little with the dust and pollen when spring rolls around, I haven't had much of a chance to test that just yet as I've had it for only a short while, but that seems to be what everyone commends it on, so perhaps it does that particularly well.

4-0 out of 5 stars OK.But do your research first.
Got this for a good price (discount coupon). Also own an IQAir which costs more than three times, so shouldn't really compare them.

Pros:
- A lot of Features for a really good price (UV light, Active carbon odor-eliminating prefilter for under $170.). Big bangs for the bucks!
- True HEPA filter!
- You can place it on the side of the room against a wall and still have the unit work effectively.
- Really like the active air quality monitoring sensor (which shows you the current air quality in realtime).
- Clean a lot more air than the expensive Ionic Breeze for a fraction of the price - please do yourself a favor and do a research on the net.

Cons:
- Somewhat NOISY for its rated cleaning air flow.
- Huge in size for its rated cleaning capability (don't be fooled by the tiny picture).
- Although my wife did not complain about the noise at night, she hated the constant cold breeze reaching her face while sleeping, no matter which location or how we positioned the air cleaner. So, I swapped it with the "breeze-less" IQAir for the bed room.

The smaller clean air outlet(actually nozzle) of this Hamilton Beach air purifier causes higher airspeed and noice level even at the lowest speed setting. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars For outer ear cleaning, and many, many other things
Q-Tips have been around for as long as I can remember. They were designed for cleaning the OUTER surfaces of the ear, and are not to be used to clean the ear canal.


*imagines ear drum being punctured during a sneeze while misusing a Q-Tip to clean the ear canal*


Whatever they were designed for, Q-Tips have probably been used in dozens, if not hundreds, of other ways. They are ideal for cleaning any small area. One example: add a few drops of lighter fluid, and you can clean out the tracks of sliding windows. I've tried several other cotton swab brands, but they just don't hold up as well.I had said cleaning any small area, but, of course, I meant any small area EXCEPT the ear canal.

3-0 out of 5 stars The convenience factor
This product works, yes, but why shouldn't it?Increase your daily vitamin intake and pop a couple echinacea, and it's the same thing.It isn't a miracle.I suppose the allure of this product is simply the convenience of having all the vitamins/herbs in one tablet, rather than taking a couple pills every day.The best thing you can do for a cold is to take your daily vitamins, get plenty of rest, and drink gallons of water.You'll get the same results as taking Airborne.

1-0 out of 5 stars TAKE A MULTIVITAMIN
This is such a gimick.Take a multivitamin and drink some OJ.This is no more effective than these tried and true old fashioned methods.Read the ingredients label before buying!I wish I had!

5-0 out of 5 stars It Really Works!
My family and I usually spend all winter and part of fall and spring with colds. A friend recommended this to me and I figured, what the heck, I have tried everything else. This has been the best winter we have had. As soon as we feel or see signs of a cold, we start taking the Airbourne. And we feel a boost of energy almost immediatley. Is all natural and safe for the kids. They like the gummies, which are alot easier to get into them than medicine. I highly recommend this product if you are tired of getting colds.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cuttin' my colds down to size
After hearing Howard Stern promote this product during breaks on his morning radio show, I decided to give Airborne a shot after I felt the early effects of a head cold comin' on. Now when I get head cold, it usually migrates down and becomes a chest cold, and can take up to two weeks for me to get over. However, when I used this product on my latest cold, I got over it in about five days, and the symptoms weren't quite as severe as they'd usually get.

The second and third times I used Airborne were for sore throats, which are almost always harbingers to a two-week-long case of bronchitis. This time 'round, each sore throat lasted a mere four days, and neither ever went beyond the point of being just mildly uncomfortable.

Needless to say, I've become a believer of this product's cold-reducing capabilities. The only thing that might be a turn-off is its price; one tube of ten Alka-Seltzer type tablets runs about seven to eight smackers in most retail stores. Fortunately, the Airborne folks presently offer a little incentive: buy six tubes, get one free through the mail (you'll need the UPCs from the tubes' packaging). Yay, I'm halfway there...

BTW I recommend the orange-citrus flavor over lemon-lime; I found the latter flavor kinda nasty...

'Late

5-0 out of 5 stars Maybe a placebo but it works for me
I've seen a few posts that wonder about the true medical powers of Airborne. All I can say, it works for me. There have been several times when I've felt run down, or that wierd, I can feel a cold coming on in the back of my throat feeling. I've taken a few Airborne over the day, though, and I don't get sick.

A few people have mentioned the taste, I think it tastes fine, kind of like Tang mixed with alka Seltzer maybe?

Bottom line, what have you got to lose? Compared to a lot of other things out there, all of the ingredients seem relatively safe for the small doses you're taken here, so why not try it? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars These things are amazing!
I have been using Cankermelts now since they were first sold on amazon last summer.They are awesome!I have found that if I put 2 in my mouth at night when I first feel a sore, my sore is gone (or almost) by the next morning. I had trouble the first time I used them getting them to adhere, but I called the company (the number is on the box)and they helped me figure it out. I never let myself run out of these things and it's nice to finally have a product on the market that actually heals nasty canker sores.I recommend these to everyone!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Slow to Adhere
The packaging says the disk is slow-adhering.They should have said veeeeeery slow-adhering.It takes a very very long time indeed before the disk actually sticks to the sore.I can't comment if this stuff works because I never got it to stay in place.It is also too big and uncomfortable to use.If your sore is in an awkward spot, forget it, you won't get it to cover the sore.

4-0 out of 5 stars a breakthrough for canker sore sufferers!!
Finally, relief for canker sore sufferers!When I read reviews for this product, I thought they sounded too good to be true, but I am so glad I took a chance and tried cankermelts!They are the only product I know of that really helps canker sores go away, and they really dull the pain.Also, if you put use one as soon as you bite your lip or cheek, it actually prevents a canker sore from forming.For maximum effectiveness, you should follow the directions and keep a cankermelt on the sore at all times until it goes away.However, like some others reviewers, I use them mostly at night and only when I think of replacing it throughout the day. They still make a huge difference.

The reason I am only giving four stars is because they are a little awkward to use.A canker melt resembles a flat disc of hard candy which softens and becomes sticky in your mouth and adheres to your ulcer.Also, they claim that the taste is hardly noticeable, but it tastes like sweet coffee to me.It's not a bad taste, but it gets old after a while.

Still, I highly recommend canker melts.I am stocking up so I won't be caught without them!

5-0 out of 5 stars It works!
I have suffered with horrible canker sores my whole life, and have never found anything that actually worked. Recently I got an awful sore right before my husband and I were going to be going out of town for the weekend for a wedding. I searched online for a miracle cure because I didn't want to be miserable on our trip. I found these and wanted to try them, but they don't sell them here in Utah and I knew I wouldn't get them on time if I ordered some. Luckily, my parents from Seattle were able to find them there, and they were going to the wedding also, so brought them to me. As soon as I put one on the sore it relieved the pain completely! Each tablet can last a couple of hours, and as soon as one would be almost melted I'd put on another one, and by the end of the weekend my sore was just about gone! That was after 4 days, just like the box said! I definately recommend trying these!

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!!!
I have had the most awful canker sores in my mouth, so painful that I could not even eat, talk straight, or concentrate at times.

I figured out that I mainly get canker sores from soft drinks, so I cut down, but now I don't have to worry nearly as much.

When I put one of these wonderful things in my mouth and adhere it to the sore, the pain goes away on the worst sore in less than a couple minutes.

The only issue is actually adhering the canker melts to the sore. This requires you to keep the tab stationary for a couple minutes where you want it to adhere, and it feels rather awkward for the first few minutes.

However, it is well worth it for hours of being pain free ...

Best of all, if I put this on a new sore, the process of healing is accelerated greatly.

I would have these painful sores in certain places in my mouth for weeks. Now, I only have to endure the pain for a few days at the worst, and even in those days I can adhere canker melts and stop the pain.

Nothing ever worked for me, but this one is worth every penny.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased!
My wife purchased one of these white noise generators for a vacation we were going on over a year ago. It is small and very lightweight with an eight foot long cord, which is nice and long. Its small size means that it fits easily into any luggage and takes up very little room on a night stand. The noise it makes is pleasantly "white," which means that it doesn't disturb you while reading in bed and yet it provides enough cover for the little noises that can sound so loud at night. The volume produced can be modulated by turning the top, making it louder or softer.

Overall, we are very pleased with our purchase of this item. We have experienced nothing but trouble free service from it, and we have even purchased a second one for the baby's room. We love this item and give it our highest recommendations!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cure for highway noise when you are trying to sleep!
Was so excited to try this since I had just moved into a new apartment and was having trouble sleeping because of the highway noise outside. Used it on the low setting and found the fan-like noise to be very soothing and masked the noise outside. Am so glad I found this product and would recommend it to anyone!! Bebeautiful shipped it very fast too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Getting a Good Night's Sleep
Do noises interrupt your sleep or make it difficult for you to concentrate? Fret no more! The Marpac SleepMate or Sound Screen is your answer. These quality sound conditioners create a seamless, smooth sound of rushing air. This "white noise" sound effectively masks unwanted noises, making it easier to concentrate, relax and/or sleep. They are quality made in the USA.

The SleepMate and Sound Screen are offered in both Single speed (model 580) and Dual speed (model 980). The tone and volume of the sound are controlled by simply rotating the "cap" (top) and "collar" (side) of the housing. I recommend the Dual speed because it offers even more control of the volume.

Here's how it works: The cap and collar have small openings in them. By rotating the cap and/or collar, you allow more or less sound to exit these openings which affects the unit's tone and volume. The 980 has high and low settings (dual speeds) offering a greater range of tone and volume than the single speed setting of the 580. At the bottom rim of the unit, there are tiny openings that allow air to enter.

Please note that the openings at the bottom rim must never be covered or the unit will overheat, malfunction and ultimately, fail.

SLEEPMATE or SOUND SCREEN
Don't be confused as to which one of these to buy. They are virtually identical except for their names. The Marpac Corporation realized the name, "SleepMate" would not be well received by their secondary market: companies who are essentially looking to increase productivity in the office.

To Marpac's thinking, no company wants their employees to use a product, while at work, with the word, "sleep" in it. Enter the name, "Sound Screen".

LESS IS MORE
Unlike most other sound conditioners whose sounds are processed, simulated, replicated, digitally enhanced, and then looped, the SleepMate/Sound Screen uses the simple, natural sound of real whooshing air. The 980 and 580 produce white noise mechanically (like a fan) - all other models produce white noise digitally.

APPLICATIONS
To name just a few, the SleepMate/Sound Screen successfully masks out

* Street noise
* Television and stereo
* Barking dogs
* Snoring spouse
* Appliance noise
* Tinnitus (ringing, buzzing in the ears)
* Noisy neighbors
* Air traffic
* Conversation

PERSONAL TESTIMONIAL
I own two SleepMate 980s. One is "permanently" plugged in on my nightstand and the other is for staying overnight elsewhere. It is a lifesaver! Now, I need not worry about unwanted noises awakening me. The gentle, whooshing sound of air melts into the night blocking all unwanted noises.

Unless my SleepMate is on, sounds like barking dogs, street noises, lawnmowers, slamming doors, and other sounds that go bump in the night and early morning can and probably would awaken me.

The closer you place the SleepMate/Sound Screen to your ears, the louder the white noise is. On rare occasions, while travelling, the external noises were so loud and so frequent that I had to place the unit literally on my pillow. Needless to say, I slept peacefully.


DURABILITY
The SleepMate/Sound Screen has proven to be a durable and effective design. Tests have shown units that are used on average 8 hours per night, last at least 15 years or more.


ABOUT MARPAC

In 1968, operations were moved to the present location in Wilmington, North Carolina. In 1997, Marpac became an employee owned company.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for a sound machine
We got this clock mainly for the sound machine and couldn't be happier.We often have troubles sleeping at night because we live in a noisy college apartment.This machine does a great job at drowning out that noise with pretty nice nature sounds.We had looked at other sound machines but most had pretty cruddy sound quality or were a water feature as well.The sound loops are done pretty well and I haven't really noticed the looping.All the sounds a pretty great with my favorites being Rain, Ocean, Summer Nights (crickets), and Thunderstorm.The time projection does cast a blue glow in the room but it isn't hard to get used to and I like that the blue time can be seen during the day as well unlike our old red time projector we had.

4-0 out of 5 stars excellent sleep aid
This is an excellent product for those that want soothing ambient sound.I checked out several similar products locally, including the cheaper clock/radio model and the waterfall model.This has the nicest sound (by far) and is compact and easy to use. The sounds are natural, and the loop time is well done so that it's not obvious.This surpassed my expectations and is a great product for helping us sleep soundly.All the features worked well and it's easy to use.Overall, I'd highly recommend it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I was disappointed by this alarm clock.I will say that I liked the projection feature very much.The natural sounds were ok except the thunderstorm.That was the sound I wanted to hear the most, but the thunder rumbled constantly and seemed very unnatural.It seems like the sound clips are very short in duration and I was able to memorize the sound of the rain within a couple of minutes.Also, the alarm clock was not userfriendly in my opinion.Buttons were too close and I ended up changing the actual time more than once. I will be returning it today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Sleep Aid
I love this clock.The sounds on it are very realistic and soothing, especially the rain sound, which puts me and my wife right to sleep.I like the rainforest sound, but she finds the birds to be distracting.Also, while I think the time projection on the ceiling is just about the coolest thing ever, my wife says it casts a blue glow in the room that disturbs her sleep; so, no projection for us.I also found the radio portion especially hard to tune, but I didn't get it for the radio.<br /> <br /> If you're looking for a very good sound machine at a very reasonable price, I think you can't beat this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad, but...
After reading the reviews and trying this unit myself, I think I can see why someone was having problems with the unit keeping time.All you need to do is press the "hour" or "minute" button and the time changes, unlike some clocks where you have to hold a button down in order to change the time.For people like me who blindly smack the clocks until you find the snooze bar in the morning, this could create a problem.Also, by hitting any of the buttons other than the snooze bar when the alarm is going off, you turn the alarm off for the day (it's reset for the next day).Again, if you're a snooze slapper you risk turning the thing off without realizing it and oversleeping.I'm a little concerned about this, but I kept the receipt so I'll give it a shot.

Otherwise, it's not bad.The sound quality is about par for a clock radio speaker, and the projection is a nice feature.For those worried about the time set and alarm issues though, I'd recommend Timex, who has 4 or 5 models of nature sound clock radios ranging in options from basic to loaded.None of them have projections, but I'd rather roll over and look at the time than risk running late. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars I don't know about other people, but...
This medicine did not work for me at all. I got all the side effects of itchiness all over the body, headaches, backaches, abdominal pains, without any improvement on my heartburns. I used this medicine for a month and my chronic heartburns got even worse that I could not even sleep at night. My doctor finally switched my medicine to Prevacid, which worked a lot better for me. I bought so many packs of Prilosec (I had to take them twice a day for 2 months) and now it's going useless.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you have acid reflux, you should try this.
This is one of the top money-making drugs of all time, and for good reason.It works.I used to have pretty bad acid reflux. I would chew Pepcid Complete (which is an antacid drug combined with a base to neutralize acid) after every meal, as if they were after-dinner mints.Now, I just take Prilosec once a day, and now I almost never suffer from heartburn, and when I do, it is not as bad as it used to be.Trust me on this.This drug works differently than Pepcid or Zantac (I have a Ph.D in biology), so if those drugs don't work for you, don't be afraid to give this a try.

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for Convenience & Efficacy
Unlike the reviewer below, I actually do know what I suffer from:Acid Reflux.I went to the quack to find this out.It is a great relief to be able to purchase this stuff over the counter because it negates trips to the hospital to pick up prescribed medicine.This stuff works too, AMAZINGLY WELL!!!It won't work for everyone but I must say that I've unsuccessfully tried to use Zantac and Pepcid under both otc doses and prescribed doses (typically about twice the strength of otc dose), and they don't work any better than a glass of milk.My medical prescription was for Pantoprazole which quite frankly when compared to this prilosec otc was not much better than the pepcid, zantac or the glass of milk.The 14 pill size box that you are going to buy is the standard series for effecting a cure for acid reflux.In other words, the manufacturer has specifically engineered its medicine to be used in a 14 day series.It worked immediatly for me, if it doesn't work right away for you I highly recommend that you continue the series.It is worth it, trust me.I've been suffering from Acid Reflux for almost exactly 12 years.It is a miserable condition to be in if untreated.Big Ups for FDA allowing this to go on sale OTC.

5-0 out of 5 stars A gift from the medicine gods - now available OTC
I am wandering far afield from my regular fare to review an over-the-counter medication, and I am certainly not a doctor or in any way qualified to advise anyone as far as medicines go, but I did feel compelled to review Prilosec because, to me, it is a wonder drug, and I am so very glad it is now available over the counter.My stomach and I have something of a love-hate relationship, and I am prone to pressure of a certain sort in my upper abdominal regions from time to time.It may or may not be heartburn; all I know is that it feels like industrial strength hunger pangs taking root way up high and that it can be triggered by the consumption of such foods as white chicken meat, turkey and dressing, and cantaloupe.Whatever it is, it is darn uncomfortable and liable to last for a couple of days if left to its own acidic devices.Antacids do nothing to help me, and even the purple pill known as Nexium strikes out every time.My only hope in these situations is Prilosec, which until now has not always been available to me because it could only be obtained with a prescription.Now, though, I can always have a ready supply of this wonder drug on hand, and while the pharmaceutical company isn't exactly giving this stuff away, the cost is definitely worth it in terms of peace of mind, not to mention peace of stomach.

The package says that Prilosec is not intended for the immediate relief of heartburn, that it should be taken over a course of several days and may require at least a day to reach full effect.I'm not going to argue the point.In my case, though, Prilosec knocks out the worst of my discomfort within an hour; it really takes no time at all to work its magic inside my system.Prilosec may not work as quickly or as effectively for others out there, but I would definitely recommend you give this product a try if you do suffer from heartburn and similar problems on a frequent basis, especially if nothing else you have taken in the past seemed to prove very effective. ...

17. TrueAir 4.0 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier

Amazon.com Review

This top-of-the-line Cool Mist humidifier is a big step up from those old steam-spitting devices. It features a front LCD panel from which you can select the desired humidity. Simply adjust the setting to anywhere between 20 percent and 90 percent (50 percent is recommended for most situations) and set the fan to low, medium, or high. The unit is oval in shape, and because the controls are on one end, it can be operated easily even if placed in a narrow space. (It's 10 inches wide and about 17 inches deep.) The curvy, translucent gray rear tank lifts off easily for refilling, as does the front fan unit for changing or rinsing the drop-in filter. The water tank is dishwasher-safe. --Richard Farr ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Humidifier I've Ever Owned!!!
This is absolutely the best humidifier I've ever owned.It doesn't leave the floor and walls wet!I live in Alabama and in the winter, I usually have to refill it every to every day.In the summer it can be extremely humid here so it rarely runs.I read in one review where it was hard to refill the tank in the tub since you have to turn the tank upside down to refill it, but I've never had a problem refilling the tank.I love the fact that you can put the tank in the dishwasher.As far as the sound, I usually have mine set on the lowest speed which is quiet.On the highest speed, it's about as loud as having an osculating fan going in your room.Some people might like itbecause it drowns out all white noise.All I can say is....My skin isn't dry anymore..My sinuses are open and my lips are no longer chapped!!!!!!I would highly recommend the TrueAir Cool Mist Humidifier to anyone!!!!Did I mention this humidifier was suppose to be for my daughter but after using it in my bedroom, I decided I needed it more.I'm going to be purchasing another one for my daugther's room!

4-0 out of 5 stars A very nice unit at any price
This is an excellent humidifier, especially for the price. It's very quiet. A filter typically lasts almost an entire season here in dry Arizona (usually October til April or whenever we turn the swamp cooler back on). It keeps our 3 back bedrooms humidified nicely just as long as you don't open the windows of course. I only fill it up every other day at most during driest times (outside humidity = 9% today!)
The only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is that the humidistat failed after 3 years of use. From my experience with these types of units 3 years is pretty good service and at this price it's really fantastic. I'm about to purchase another one...

5-0 out of 5 stars very good unit
I did a lot of research before deciding on this particular humidifier, and I am glad we got the one we did. It is very quiet, it seems to be made very well, and is relatively sturdy. When the weather gets dry, our entire house is way too dry. Skin, furniture, houseplants...I talked my husband into trying this humidifier, and have to recommend it highly. I'd buy another just like it if I had use for another one, but this pretty much does the whole house. Hamilton Beach is still a good name.

4-0 out of 5 stars Convenient and effective!
I bought two different humidifiers- a Slant/Fin warm mist and this True Air.Although we really like our Slant/Fin for the baby's room, this unit is much easier to clean.It is rather noisy when the water tray is filling (it makes a glugging sound that sounds like someone knocking on your window in the middle of the night- spooky!), but for ease of use and maintenance, it can't be beat.The noise factor is less when you put it in "quiet" mode and after a dy or so, you just get used to it.We have VERY hard water and the filters don't need to be changed as often as with most humidifiers which is a long-run cost savings.I recommend this item and have done the research- replacment filters are cheapest through Amazon (cheaper than at the manufacturers website).

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great! Just what I wanted...
After reading all the mixed reviews on this product, I bought it anyway as it seemed the best deal for the amount of space I needed to humidify (1100- 1200 sf).I was pregnant and it was winter and I was getting pretty dehydrated from the drying heat in my apartment.Within days I was sleeping soundly waking refreshed and no longer having headaches.I would have given this 5 stars but it's the first I bought and I cannot make any comparisons.

I am not sure what the reviewers that reviewed this product badly expected, having to refill it often just means that it is putting a lot of moisture into the air, the noise is not overwhelming and is similar to any white noise often used to put and keep kids asleep, I had no problem refilling it, my 2 year-old even liked to help, finally if you turn the filters faithfully once a week 2-3 filters should last the season.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Miracle for Anyone with Asperger's/ADD
If you have Asperger's SYndrome or ADD (I have Asperger's myself), your excessive distractability can easily distract you from any tasks that you perform, causing you to drift from activity to activity without completing any of the activities. THus results in great inefficiency and very poor time management. Why? Sensory overload will overwhelm an Aspie/person with ADD, causing this to happen.

I am an ambitious person with Asperger's who is going into the International Baccalaureate program and who aspires to Caltech or MIT. Unfortunately however, my excessive distractibility led me to excessive procrastination as I wasn't even able to work on my homework very efficiently (my procrastination led to a grade drop too; it was only through sympathetic teachers that my GPA didn't drop significantly). Furthermore, I couldn't stand certain sensory stimuli, causing me to cover my ears if someone went to the bathroom (yes, I cannot stand the sound of any bathroom sounds). The constant breaking of my concentration caused me to forfeit my homework until the very end, when the stress of an immediate deadline coerced me into finishing my homewokr assignments. Of course, this extreme procrastination had many negtive impacts on my work quality and I even turned in several assignments late.

Yet, I still spent as much time on homework, even more, than my peers. This resulted in having no time for any extra-curricular activities whatsoever, and caused me to doubt my own intelligence, leading to an huge decrease in my self-esteem.

Enter the earplugs. Initially, I gave up on them because they became uncomfortable only after a few minutes. You'll have to deal with the initial discomfort at first, but the rewards will be MIRACULOUS once you wear them for extended periods of time. With one's concentration no longer broken and the distractions gone, any person with Asperger's or ADD who wants to complete their homewokr efficiently and quickly will want to use this product. Mere words are too little to explain my joy of finally finding the product; if not for this, I would probably have to drop the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

These products do wear out after some time although they're still well-worth the cost! They should last for several months each.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product - Fits and feels great
I've tried many types of ear plugs to block out noise and this is by far the best one I've used.

The size of the ear plug is perfect size and it expands and fits perfectly in the ear canal to block out noise. Other ear plugs can be too hard or too soft or feel awkward wearing but these fit great.

I use them to study and sleep in noisy areas. This package also contains a small plastic carrying case that can carry about a pair of ear plugs. The case is handy so you can carry them with you anywhere you go. The price is also very reasonable here on amazon. I definitely recommend them to block out all types of noise.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for lil swimmers!
My 6 year old has tubes in her ears, yet LOVES to swim! I have tried ALL types of ear plugs and these are by far the best! I used to use the type that were like putty, and I had to press them in her hear so hard, it hurt her.

Now that I have used the foam ear plugs, I will never use another! They are comfortable and keep my childs ears dry even when she in the pool for a long time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best for studying
This is the best ear plugs I have used so far.I study a few feet behind our TV, yet I can still concentrate without spoiling other's good time. ... Read more
