Know What to Expect When Using Provent & Give Yourself the Time You Need to Adjust

Provent Therapy can make you feel like it’s harder to breathe out. To experience what this may feel like, pinch the bridge of your nose with your fingers and try breathing out. This is what Provent Therapy will feel like at first. It may be a little different, but you’ll get used to it.

It may take up to a week or more to adjust to Provent Therapy. In fact, wearing the device may feel uncomfortable for the first few nights. The tips below will help you get used to wearing Provent before and during sleep. Click here for a printable version of Provent Tips for Success.

TIP 1 - Inhale

Provent Therapy User Tip 1
  • Inhale through your mouth or through the Provent Nasal Device - whichever makes it more comfortable to fall asleep.

TIP 2 - Exhale

Provent Therapy User Tip 2
  • Briefly try breathing out through your nose. You should notice resistance, this is normal and means the device is working.
  • Until you fall asleep, breathe out through your mouth (not through the device).
  • Most people will switch to nasal breathing once asleep, effectively “turning on” the device.

TIP 3 - Relax

Provent Therapy User Tip 3
  • Put on Provent right before bed and breathe out through your mouth as you fall asleep.
  • Do not engage in any activity while wearing the Provent Nasal Device - just try to fall asleep.
  • Keep a glass of water near your bedside, in case you wake up with a dry mouth.

TIP 4 - Repeat

Provent Therapy User Tip 4
  • Take time to get used to wearing Provent Therapy.
