Medications need not be added to the unit if one simply requires a warm humidity for treatment.

Depends on the use. For a cold or nasal issues I would suggest a inhalant to sooth the respiratory system. But I use mine for moisture in the air to keep down electrical shock, because I live in a very dry climate.

Question

Is the nightlight able to be turned off?

I just want moisture in my room when I sleep but I definitely don't need a night light. I was hoping that it shuts off because this product seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.

No, I'm pretty sure you have to unplug it to get the night light off. But maybe you could put a piece of duct tape over it?

Refer to the special notes section page 3 of the Owners Manual.

"Discoloration/Black Particles
After use, the water residue in the bottom of the container may contain black particles,and, in some areas the water and the bottom of container may discolor. These conditions are normal and do not affect the purity of the steam or medication. The container is easily cleaned with soap and water. Rinse and dry the container after cleaning."

The company told me it was minerals from hard water. But I never experienced this the first 4-5 months I was using it, it wasn't until it sat awhile and I cleaned it and ran it again that it did this to me also. I 'googled' it and found that it was the heating element breaking down in the water. EWWWW.

Can you use regular Vicks in the vaporizer? Rather than the Vicks VapoSteam or Kaz Inhalant...

Not "in" the water container. There is a medication cup under the steam outlet, as in the old glass model.

Im not too sure that would work, I think the oil is used for it because it is steam activated, and it evaporates into the air! =)

There may be too much salt added or you may live in a hard water area.
See page 4 of your Owners Manual.

Probably too much conductivity in water. Cut down on salt if putting in water. Also try filling to a lower level.

I had a vicks vaporizer and I did not know its output wattage, but what I certainly learned is, it sucks a lot of power that my elect.bill doubled from $40 to $80, even though I just ran only few hours a night. I threw mine away! and went to cool mist. and I relaxed. may be warm mist also be okay, but watch out!
