I'm a school teacher for middle school, and my kiddos are not the most hygienic people in the world yet. I frequently pick up whatever the kids have, but whenever I start taking Zicam at the first hint, it ALWAYS works - I swear by the stuff and tell all my friends to use it too!

Zicam® Cold Remedy Cherry RapidMelts® is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 238.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I don't know how this product works, because it's not like usual cough drops. These Melts are more like tablets, but with cherry taste:) They melt really fast, this is very convenient if you work on the phone or with people, so sucking a cough drop does not affect your talking. And they really work. I don't know how, they just do:) Only one thing I don't really like about these Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts is the texture of them itself, i mean feeling in my mouth. It's really weird for me, like sucking an oldschool tablet (even if this one has a nice taste), Maybe someone finds it Okay, but it feels weird to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let me start by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Zicam products! This was my first time trying Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts. While I prefer the nasal spray, these would be perfect to keep in my purse to take at the first sign of a cold. I woke up this weekend with a slightly sore throat, and I took a Cherry RapidMelt. The texture is smooth, and it does indeed, rapidly melt in your mouth. My only reason for preferring the nasal spray is the aftertaste the zinc leaves behind. With the nasal spray, there is no taste. I received the rapidmelts complimentary for testing, and I am so glad that I did. I will continue to keep Zicam products on hand, and to recommend them to friends and family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I recently got to try the cherry flavored zicam rapid melts. My boyfriend and I both tried them because our kids brought home something from school. Surprisingly it tastes pretty good just be prepared for your mouth to go a little numb. The tablet dissolved pretty quickly and it did help us with our symptoms. I just really didnt like the numbing feeling and for a few hours after felt like there was a weird coating throughout my mouth. It wasnt horrible just annoying when you go to eat or drink anything later. Overall it was worth it because I didnt get sick like I would have if I took nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best friend had a cold last week and still has a lingering cough, so when I started to get a stuffed nose at the beginning of the week, I decided it was time to try my free sample of Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts. I have been taking them for about 4 days, and my cold is already like 99% gone. With my friends cold lasting two weeks and not being gone yet, and me probably getting it from her, I expected mine to last longer. The Zicam really seems to be helping. I was a little nervous to try the first one because most adult cold is disgusting, but these actually have a pretty good flavor. They have a little of a after taste, but it's not too bad. I would definitely recommend Zicam RapidMelts to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received the Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts in Cherry flavor for my Crowdkit. This product dissolved easily and tasted good. It was not super chalky. I followed the directions and didn't drink for 15 minutes after I took it and made sure I didn't take it on an empty stomach and didn't notice any side effects. I didn't make me drowsy. I took it for 3 days and my symptoms are gone. This is HUGE considering I have a husband with health issues and when I get sick, he usually gets it, but because I caught it before I got bad, he didn't get sick! Thank you #ZICAM and #CROWDTAP!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received a sample of Zicam cold remedy rapidmelt, and it was perfect timing as my husband and I just returned from vacation 3 weeks ago and we both came down with colds, so we both started taking our zicam immediately, at the first sign of our colds. We took it religiously for a week....I think we felt a little better after a few days and my husbands cold cleared up after a week, although mine lasted two weeks, so am not sure it shortened mine much...I would definitely try the zicam again at the first sign of a cold (it may have lessened the severity) Am so happy to have received the sample, as I will try again...easy to take also, as the rapidmelts are good tasting. I would love to try the zicam fruit drops

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was really excited when they arrived because I had woken up with a sore throat that day. Perfect time to get these out! They tasted great, for the first 10seconds... then the flavoring was gone and it was bitter medicine taste. You are also to refrain from drinking 15mins before or after, so the nasty taste kinda lingers. I used it for 3days, every 3 waking hours, and unfortunately my coldgot worse. Having 3 kids and a husband who's sick as well probably is why I got worse. I will use what's left with my next cold. It could be I waited too long to start this time.
