Zicam Cold Remedy Chewables Strawberry Facts
Zicam Cold Remedy Chewables Strawberry treats the cold, not just the symptoms. Unlike other over-the-counter cold medicines designed to relieve or mask symptoms, Zicam Cold Remedy is different. When taken at the first sign, within the first 24 to 48 hours, Zicam Cold Remedy gets rid of your cold faster.
Common cold facts indicate that most people ignore the first few days when they’re "just getting a cold." They start "medicating" only when they begin to feel miserable, a few days into the cold cycle. It is during those crucial first few days, before full-blown symptoms appear, that the cold virus is replicating. That's the ideal time to start using Zicam Cold Remedy so you can get rid of your cold faster.

Is Zicam Cold Remedy Chewables a "cure" for the common cold?
Since the common cold is a self-limiting condition (research shows that most people get over a cold between 10-14 days), the term "cure" is not scientifically applicable. However, unlike most over-the-counter and prescription cold remedies that have been designed to temporarily suppress the symptoms of the common cold, Zicam Cold Remedy Oral Mist helps reduce the duration and severity of the common cold.
Haven't there been studies indicating that zinc is ineffective?
Clinical studies of zinc based cold relief products that use different active zinc formulations (for example, zinc sulfate), different delivery systems and lower doses of zinc have had differing results. Zicam Cold Remedy’s combination of Zincum Gluconicum and Zincum Aceticum reduce the duration and the severity of the cold.
Why can’t I eat or drink citrus fruits or juices for 30 minutes after taking Zicam Cold Remedy Chewables?
The acids found in citrus fruits and juices can interact with the efficacy of zinc.

Can Zicam Cold Remedy help protect me from the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus?
No. Zicam products are not intended to protect against any influenza virus, including H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus. Colds and flu are caused by different viruses. The flu is caused by the influenza virus. The leading cause of the common cold is the rhinovirus (“rhino” means nose), of which there are more than 100 strains. Zicam Cold Remedy gets you over your cold faster when taken as directed at the first sign of symptoms. Though a cold and a flu share many symptoms – like sore throat, nasal congestion and sneezing – the flu is usually marked by more intense symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, body aches and dry cough. People with a cold are more likely to have a stuffy or runny nose.
Adults and children six years of age and older:
For best results, use at the first sign of a cold and continue to use for an additional 48 hours after symptoms subside.
Take one square at the onset of symptoms. Chew thoroughly before swallowing.
Repeat every three hours until symptoms are gone.

I take this as soon as I feel a little worn down or am in crowded spaces where people are sick. I can pretend they are candy! They leave a funny taste in your mouth, but that is normal for zinc remedies!
