Zicam Decreased Appetite Reviews

Thu, 23 Feb 2012

I just got over an allergic reaction to something after having a cold for about 3 days.  I had started taking Zicam Meltaways early morning on day 2.  I have taken Zinc lozenges to lesson time and symptoms several times and found it quite effective.  The store didn't have the lozenges so I decided to try the Zicam.  On day 3 I became very congested in my sinus' .  By day 3 it didn't seem normal  (I had pneumonia in 2010...1st time ever and the doctor said that once you have pneumonia you are more apt to get it again.)  So day 4 I went to my physician and he said you may have a bug...but this looks like an allergic reaction.  He gave me a Decadron injection...told me to drink lots of water, rest, neti pot etc.  He listened carefully and said my chest was clear.
   Day 7 comes and I know it is in my chest...so back to my doc..by now I'm coughing and hawking up bloody chunks resembling liver.  He now RX Cephlexin (precautionary I think), another decadron injection...mucinex DM.  A couple of days after that I didn't seem to be any better...so I went back for Decadron injection 3  a breathing treatment (Albuteral and Atrovent I think ) and a 6 day prednisone pack. Yesterday 14 days in was my first normal day.
  Not once until today did I suspect Zicam...but it was the only thing I had taken and this reaction was much stronger than a seasonal allergy.   No more Zicam for me.

Felt very bad, lost apetite and felt depressed.

Thu, 19 Jan 2012

I took Zicam over a week ago.  I started having a very dry tongue.  My taste never changed, but my tongue  feels so uncomfortable.  I am done with Zicam.

Tue, 30 Nov 2010

Have taken Zicam rapid melts, started on Friday throughout the weekend.Monday I have trouble swallowing, it hurts to cough and the back of my mouth hurts. I have stopped taking it and will return otherunopened product.

Thu, 17 Mar 2011

Took the Zicam rapidmelts for a couple of days to keep a cold from coming on. After 4 days i now have some kind of weird taste in my mouth. Nothing seems to tast right-cherry coke, OJ, hell even my cigars don't taste right (trying to quit maybe this will help). Some times it comes and goes. Anyone else having these side effects.

Thu, 21 Jul 2011

I'm suspecting that Zicam rapid melts may have an aspirin component since after taking it 2 days I've had a ghout attack in my foot which is normally triggered by high uric acid levels common to aspirin.

The positive effects have been reduced congestion, reduced cough and the tast is good. The negative effects have been gout, a nose bleed, and although reduced, the cough has been persistent.

Thu, 23 Dec 2010

lost sense of smell and taste after using mouth spray in march 2008. Most of the time it is still gone. Once in a while I can smell and taste but not like normal. Just slightly. I hate the product. It's still on the shelves at Walmart.
