Update: Capsaicin spray

We located the Sinus Buster Headache Formula capsaicin spray at Vitamin World at the Willow Bend Mall in west Plano.

Haven't tried it yet. Will post results when he does.

See this post for my experiences with Sinol and Sinus Buster as they relate to cluster headaches.


  • I use Sinol Nasal Spray. It's much nicer on the nose than Sinus Buster. Sinol works great and I love it!

  • Actuallu sinol does not work at all for headaches. It's too weak. I use Sinus Buster capsaicin nasal spray. It stops headaches right away. Check out the video reviews by nelnetdude on He has has horrible migraines and sinol didn't work at all for him. He says Sinus Buster did the trick right away. There's a big difference between sinol and Sinus Buster.

  • My personal experience with both brands is that they are nearly worthless.

    Both seem to knock down my pain a notch but only briefly and only a small amount. If used as directed, this has no value to me... I would quickly exceed the maximum dose for only minor relief.

    Also these seem to be more effective on migraines but for bad cluster attacks... they are pretty pointless.

  • Hi Scott,

    I suffer from chronic clusters and Sinol works very well for me. I would suggest more than one application as you can use it liberally. Sometimes I spray it 2-4 times with great results.

  • I don't know what to tell you, I used a ton of it repeatedly. As you well know, most of us will do just about anything you try to get rid of a bad attack.

    As with a lot of these type of things, drinking tons of water, breathing oxygen, they seem to work in varying degrees for different people for me, the capsaicin sprays had an extremely mild effect. So little in fact, so that I would consider them pointless. For others they could work wonderfully. Everyone should be their own judge of these products.

    But as far as using them liberally, if I'm not mistaken both products have warnings about overuse and recommend a limited dosage. Regardless of were the chemical compounds originate these homeopathic remedies are still medications and the fact they're not regulated the same way pharmaceuticals are gives me a bit of pause when thinking about a tortured cluster sufferer squirting this stuff up their nose continuously and what that may be doing to them over the long run. The manufacturers of these products clearly state on the packaging that they should not be used that way but you and I know that that's exactly what a "clusterhead" would be doing, inhaling it like it was delicious candy.

    I don't think anyone has done a study on what THAT is doing to someone. Call me paranoid, but where there's money to be made I don't trust homeopathic remedy companies anymore than I do giant pharmaceutical companies.
