I won't use mine if I have a head cold anymore. I've done it twice & both times got pneumonia & other crud in my lungs. The 1st time I didn't really put it together, but after the 2nd time I realized that the machine was pushing the crud in my sinuses down into my lungs. I've had a few head colds since & I just slept in the recliner at 45 degree or higher incline. I don't get as good of sleep, but I also don't get pneumonia. If you don't have any sinus congestion, then it may help, but if you do have a stuffed up head, I don't recommend it.
