Zicam® Medicated Fruit Drops is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 228.
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 3 out of 5 by from I took Zicam Medicated Fruit Drops about 8 hrs after I noticed my first sign of a cold. My cold symptoms didn't worsen but they didn't get much better either, thus the 3 rating, it didn't make me better it just stopped the symptoms from getting worse. The metallic taste is almost unbearable. I couldn't taste food or drink while taking it, they say it is just citrus food and drink but it affects all food taste quality. The taste is almost so unbearable it effected my sleeping. Overall it sort of does what it says but the zinc/metallic taste is almost overwhelming, I will try something else before I try this again. I received these complimentary to try through Crowdtap.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runny nose? Check! Watery eyes? Check! Sore throat? Check! Time to start homeopathic Zicam Cold Remedy. When taken at these first signs of a cld, Zicam is formulated to shorten the duration of your cold. I am taking Zicam Medicated Fruit Drops and have been taking them every 3 hours, I will keep taking until symptoms subside. A cold is not keeping me down, I have a busy life and have no time for a long cold. I take multiple immune suppressors for RA and my Doctor recommended Zicam so I do not stay sick for weeks. #thankful #ZicamCrowd #sponsored #freegift

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have never tried anything from Zicam before, but I was very happy with my experience with the Medicated Fruit Drops. I started taking them when my husband came home sick from work. He is a barber and obviously works close to people so he catches colds pretty often. The drops are very soft and the sugar coating adds some sweetness. My favorite was the orange flavor, they are surprisingly tasty. They worked great for me since I started taking them right away, but my husband had his cold for a few days. He did not have the head start taking them like I did though. I would repurchase these again!

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!
