I have GERD as well as a hiatal hernia in my esophagus, and for three years I've been struggling to find a solution for the painful night-time reflux that has caused me to lose hours upon hours upon hours of sleep - this pillow just might be my miracle. I've run the gamut of treatment for GERD and was still waking up to the very painful sensation of having hard air bubbles lodged inside my throat even after I had my esophagus dilated during an EGD procedure, so I decided to take my physician's advice to try sleeping with my head elevated. There are many options available for one seeking a wedge pillow, but across several websites and reviews I kept coming back to this one, and since it was so affordable and appeared almost identical to the $80 Medslant wedge I decided to give it a try. It only took two days to receive the package with our Prime shipping, so forty-eight hours after making my purchase I was already sleeping better than I have in many, many years.

In addition to GERD I also have moderate-to-severe allergies, frequent post-nasal drip, and I snore pretty badly. It was such a relief to wake up after the first night I used the wedge to find that the headaches, stuffy nose, and scratchy throat I've grown used to experiencing every morning had completely disappeared. I can honestly say that I've been experiencing the best sleep of my entire life since I began using it. According to my husband I haven't stopped snoring entirely, but he said my nose has been more quiet than ever since we married nearly six years ago, and - more importantly - I don't wake up feeling like I've snored all night anymore.

The pillow is very firm - those who are accustomed to sleeping on memory foam should find it quite comfortable, and it's important to remember that the wedge serves better as an extension of your mattress rather than the pillow on which you rest your head. I think some of the reviews that described this product as uncomfortable may have come from individuals who didn't use their regular pillow on top of the wedge. I place my down pillow at the top of the wedge and sleep comfortably through the entire night. If you're a stomach sleeper you'll be in for a difficult adjustment, but back and side sleepers will have it made. The incline/elevation was actually more comfortable than laying flat has ever been for me - and those who have a tendency to wake up with soreness in the lower back will be very pleased to learn that this wedge can also help eliminate that aspect of discomfort as well.

I love this wedge, would highly recommend it to GERD/reflux, allergy/sinus, and snoring/apnea sufferers, and I definitely intend to purchase this again as a gift for those friends and family of mine who share these ailments.

It took a few nights to get use to but it has helped my Barrett'e syndrome. I was also surprised that my back felt much better in the morning. I looked at a few other wedges but this was perfect and the price was right. I found extra covers at "Bed,Bath&Beyond" for $10.

I purchased this pillow for those allergy nights where you just can't breathe lying down. I was going to purchase a 10 or 12 inch wedge but after reading several reviews about sliding I decided to give this one a try. The 7.5 inch height works great. Enough of an incline to make breathing easier but no sliding. And no readjusting the pillows when you move around in the middle of the night. The 7.5 inch height also allows you to sleep on your side without cramping your back. Great purchase.

This pillow is worth more than its low price would indicate. I am finally getting better quality sleep as I can sleep with my upper body slightly elevated. Due to allergies, post nasal drip, acid reflux problems, and xerotomia caused by radiation for throat cancer, I used to have to sit up to cough 5-6 times a night. Now, often not at all, or 1-2 times at the most.

My husband has GERD, so he must sleep on a wedge. This wedge has stayed firm & not sagged. Some reviewers complained about a chemical smell after opening, but we did not experience it. I am pleased with this purchase & would order again.

Worked great for my wife's back pain. Product was a little on the firm side but otherwise great.

I received the Wedge Pillow in good condition. I am now sleeping much better without the acid reflux problems (gerd) I occasionally had.

There is not much to say about this product other than it works for what it is intended to do. I breathe and sleep easier at night. However, if you intend to use it for other purposes ;)...then in my opionion it is not firm enough, and the incline is not steep enough.

This wedge was too steep of a slope and too high - had to sleep like I was almost sitting up. After a few weeks, I trimmed it down to the 5" high area - that was better but still too steep of a slope to sleep comfortably. Ended up going to an upholstery place and having a foam wedge made that was 4-1/2 inches high with a 30 inch long slope - much better.

THESE BED WEDGES ARE GREAT ITEMS. I PUT THEM UNDERNEATH THE TOP OF MY MATTRESS TO LIFT IT UP BEFORE I HAD MY SURGERY, AND I WAS ABLE TO SLEEP IN MY BED INSTEAD OF A CHAIR AFTER I HAD MY SURGERY.
