    I have sworn by Zicam for about 5 years. Other people say that the taste and texture is unpleasant.... but come on- it's zinc. You do however have to begin Zicam before the cold goes full blown, otherwise you've wasted product and money. The only temporary side effect is that I slightly lose my ability to taste. It comes back in full within two days of stopping Zicam. I've turned so many people on to this product and they swear by it too.

    I switched to this after the warnings that the zycam nasal spray may cause loss of sense of smell.

    these rapidmelts work just as well as the spray, but it takes about 15 minutes for them to completely melt!

    try talking to your co-worker and not foam at the mouth this way.

    the chewables are gross, but at least I can get them down quickly and go back to work.

    Rapidmelts Reduce length of cold

    By MaPeach

    from Newton, MA

    describe yourself Healthy Adult

    Pros

    • Easy To Administer
    • Promotes Healing
    • Relieves Symptoms Fast

    Cons

    • Rather Pill To Swallow
    • Taste Lingers A While

    Best Uses

    • Any Cold Symptoms

    Comments about Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts, Citrus, 25 ea:

    I have taken the rapidmelts twice as soon as I noticed cold symptoms. I take it every three hours until symptoms are gone, as recommended. One time last year and again this week. I had runny nose, headache, congestion, slight fever, general malaise, post nasal drip leading to cough. Generally felt rotten. Slept sitting up to help with cough. I also took an NSAID (ibuprofen), an antihistamine (Claritin) and a Tussin liquid (CVS) at night for cough. Symptoms started on a Monday around 3:00pm. I was considerably better by Tuesday afternoon and almost well by 9:00pm, with no cough and slept well. Wednesday am was fine, but with a little head fog cleared up with ibuprofen. I don't like the taste and would prefer a pill to swallow, but it worked both times, so I'm fine with it. Highly recommend having it on hand.

                      I swear by this product. Any time I have started to feel the scratchy throat begin I immediately reach for my Zicam... needless to say, I have honestly not had a cold in over a year now and I have 2 school aged kids constantly bringing home germs! I've probably fought off about 4 or 5 colds. I'll agree with the other reviewers about the chalkiness, but I'm able to get past it because of the benefits! I like the citrus flavor much better than the berry one I had in the past. Definitely recommend this product!!!
