Does Zicam Really Work?

To get over your cold more rapidly, take Zicam.  Zicam reduces the duration and severity of cold symptoms like sore throat, stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing, and congestion. It has a great tasting mint flavor. Zicam is homeopathic, non-drowsy, non-habit forming and no known drug interaction. Take Zicam Cold Remedy at the first sign of a cold. Safe and effective nasal treatment.  Active Ingredients: Dextromethorphan HBr (6.0 mg) (Cough Suppressant). To avoid a minor stomach upset, do not take on an empty stomach. Do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after use. Do not eat or drink citrus fruits or juices for 30 minutes before or after. Otherwise, drink plenty of fluids. Children under three years of age, consult a doctor before use.

Yes - It works great for me

I am thrilled I discovered it. To me it’s a miracle cure. Everytime I get a cold and start taking the lozenger (the nasal is off the market) the cold doesn’t develop or is very weak. I tell everybody about it.

Yes - What a shame they took this off the market!

My partner Ed and I always swore by Zicam. We heartily recommended it to friends, family, colleagues, people on the street… While it’s true that its efficacy may have been nothing more than a placebo effect, I do know that when I would remember to take Zicam as directed (at the very first sign of an impending cold), my symptoms DID seem lessened and the cold itself seemed to last a shorter amount of time than it would have otherwise. I have to admit we were shocked at the allegations which led to Zicam’s removal from the market, for we experienced NONE of those problems (a decreased sense of smell and/or taste). The only CONS for Zicam were its taste (ALL zinc products have a distinct and pungent unpleasant taste, hence the flavoring added to them) and the fact that its sprayer would clog after opening if not used regularly. (This was usually solved by removing the sprayer head and soaking it in hot water for about 10 minutes.) Even with the allegations about its damaging effects, we’d STILL use Zicam, that is how much we believed in it, and how much we continue to do so. A great product, sorely missed.
