Zicam® Medicated Fruit Drops is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 230.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My bottle of Zicam got to my house at the perfect time! Day one, I started sneezing and my nose was a little runny, I took the medicated fruit drops every 3 hours. Day two, I was feeling awful; runny nose, congestion, sinus pressure, sore throat and coughing. Still too my medicated fruit drops every 3 hours. Day 3, I woke up feeling a little better still congested, and a little remnants of a sore throat. Today, day number 4, I am almost completely better, I only have a little bit of a runny nose, but Im still taking them every 3 hours, until Im completely better! I am definitely a believer in these and I will be purchasing them again! Not only do they work but they taste great too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! What timing! Literally right after I got my sample I got hit with a cold! I can always tell when I'm getting sick because I get this little tickle in my throat. I immediately went for the Zicam Medicated Fruit Drops. I made sure I was taking them as directed and sure enough, a cold that would normally last me 2 weeks was down to about 6 days. I didn't feel nearly as bad as I normally do either. The fruit flavor was quite pleasant, which was a nice surprise. I normally don't do well with flavored medication. They were just like little gummy bears though! These are something that I would definitely keep around for future colds to shorten the length and get back to living life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received a very generously sized free sample of Zicam Cold Remedy medicated fruit drops from CrowdTap. My kids were just getting over a cold when these arrived in the mail, and I could feel the slightly foggy head and scratchy throat that told me that I was coming down with whatever my kids had. So, I started taking these as directed. I noticed that these made my symptoms more manageable and that I never got quite as sick as the kids did, and that my cold hasn't lasted as long as the kids cold did. These are also very pleasant tasting, as an added bonus, kind of like a cross between a gummy vitamin and a cough drop. I will definitely buy these again at the first signs of a cold next time around!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I tried Zicam Cold Remedy Medicated Fruit Drops as soon as I had a hint that I was getting sick. We had just returned from a trip flying to see family. Airplanes are a horrible place to be if you don't want to get sick! My husband started feeling bad at the same time, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to see what the difference would be if I took the Medicated Drops and he didn't. Unfortunately, we both ended up with much more than a common cold. Needless to say, it didn't help me, so its hard to give a real review.The Drops really taste good. They are not like other drops I've tried that really leave a bad aftertaste. I would try them again, hopefully when I have just a common cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love that Zicam provides a homeopathic option for fighting off a cold. As it is cold season, my family has already been hit, hard. These drops are soft, easy to chew, and actually pretty tasty to be considered a medicine. There is a sugar coating on the fruit drops to give them the added sweetness. It is hard for me to say whether these for sure shortened the length of my cold, as I also took cold medicine. However, because they are homeopathic and are tasty, I will continue to purchase them and take them any time I begin to have cold symptoms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zicam medicated fruit drops work great for me. I love the whole Zicam line. When used as directed at the first start of a cold and used throughout the duration, it really helps to shorten my cold and also seems to help with all the cruddy symptoms. Anything that helps my cold go away quicker is a plus for me! My family and I are using and will continue to use the new Zicam medicated drops as well as other Zicam products as we have seen a big difference in the length of our colds when we use Zicam as directed and at the first sign of any symptoms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got Zicam in the mail last week... and let me start off by saying my immune system is the WORST! I catch cold for no good reason, and it lasts for weeks. I get sick every month. A day after I received it, I started sneezing and had the runny nose when I came back from work... and I knew that was it... I was falling sick AGAIN! I remembered about Zicam and took it right away, followed the instructions very thoroughly. It tasted amazing and I am true believer of Homeopathic medicines, since my dad's cousin is a Homeopathic doctor and I have taken ones when i was little. It worked like a charm! I will buy this in a heart beat and recommend it to everyone. I already saw it in the meds aisle in walmart! very easy to find which is a big plus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I received these complimentary in exchange for a honest review. First things they remind me of gummie vitamins but the consistency is less gummy and more jelloie.. They are very easy to chew and have three flavores of orange, lemon and a berry. After chewing I noticed a minty like feeling which im not sure what its for. It's recommend on the bottle to take at the first sign of getting a cold, to shorten the duration. I took it the first itchy sign I got. It says to chew a drop every 3 hours for however long it may take. Id actually like for a estimated time frame of how long it will take. I will say its been a few days and i am feeling better, but I did take other cold medicine as well.
