I know some of you out there swear by Zicam and just wanted to give you the heads up:

    My sister will gladly join folks in testimonials for Zicam; maybe she was zinc deficient.....

    Thanks, girl. I use the tabs and I can't smell anything anyway, so I should be good to go I frigg'n love that stuff. I carry it in my purse in case I start to get sniffly!

    I do today what you won't, so tomorrow I do what you can't.

    I used Zicam last Fall for a while and noticed my sense of taste would be off, but it came back when I stopped taking it. I had seen anecdotes about loss of smell so I was a little cautious, just in case. The incidence would seem to be very low. How many millions have taken Zicam? This is another of those benefit/risk gray areas.

    Well, I can't remember ever really being able to smell.  I've always suffered from allergies and asthma so I think my sense of smell has been gone for quite some time.    So I guess it doesn't matter in my case.  Brenda thought I was weird because I'd tell her I can smell better with my mouth open, but I do.

    Pilots hate doctors, right?  I mean, why be friendly to anyone who can ruin your career.  Thus, I stumbled upon an old Hindu treatment called the Netti Pot.



    I still get the odd cold or two (I have kids...what are you going to do?), but I stave off several and it lessens the severity of the ones I do get.



    I use the "Sinu Cleanse" brand from your local Walgreens. 



    Give it a shot.  No drugs.  It works, but takes a week or so to get used to the process.

    I have used Zicam for years, have avoided many colds, still smell my coffee in the morning and I just love the stuff.  I'm like Kat, I have a couple of those things in my bag at all times.  So I'd be a walking, talking, running testimonial for the stuff.
