Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray free in return for my honest opinion.With my son being in elementary school he brings home ALOT of germs. Needless to say I'm always catching a cold due to this. Last week I started sneezing and felt my throat starting to feel scratchy. I started using this Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray immediately. I have to honestly say that this helped shorten my cold symptoms. Within a week my cold was gone. Usually my colds last much longer from past experiences. I like the cooling menthol & Eucalyptus in this spray. I really feel nice in the nasal passage. I would buy this product and would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently had the occasion to try Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray as I woke up one morning and felt that "unmistakable feeling of a cold coming on". My throat felt scratchy and I just had an overall BLAH feeling. I immediately remembered I had Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray in my bathroom and used it. I know that Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray does NOT work instantly and is formulated to shorten a cold, not get rid of it completely overnight. I used Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray every day for about 4-5 days, when my cold was gone. I did feel completely better and felt that Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray helped shorten the duration of my cold, thereby making me feel better sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first sniffle, sneeze or throat tickle.... you have a pre-cold, the first sign a full blown cold is coming! Sometimes, full blown cold is unevitabIe and I can't afford to get sick and be stuck on bed. I can't miss any precious moments with my family. That's why its great to have Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray at hand. I like that it has cooling menthol and eucalyptus which is relaxing scent. Zicam is a pre-cold mwdicine which shorthen the Cold and relieves multiple signs and symptoms. This is the only proven cold shortening nasal spray! When I learned about Zicam, I started stocking it at my home just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zicam cold remedy no-drip nasal spray has been a blessing for me. I have a busy schedule and don't have time for the common cold. I was able to use Zicam cold remedy no-drip nasal spray at the first sign of my cold and I was able to see my symptoms not be as bad as the normal cold. It was so easy to use and really was great on the go - because you know this mom does not have any down time. My symptoms were not as severe as normal and I was able to get better in just a few days. Thanks Zicam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This came at the perfect time. Two days after receiving this from #Crowdtap I noticed I was starting with scratchy throat and stuffy nose. Since I felt the cold coming on I decided to give it a try. I definitely recommend taking as soon as you feel a cold coming on. It helped prevent my cold from getting to the full blown cold. It helps me breathe so much better, especially in the evening when trying to sleep. It did cut the full effect of the cold go away and it helps me breathe so much better. I started feeling better the next morning. It really works. It had a bit of drainage but I am sensitive to that anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I started using Zicam No Drip Nasal spray when I got a runny nose and new my first winter cold had arrived. It is very simple to use and it backs up its claims for the no drip feature. I believe it did help to shorten my cold and it definitely helped relieve some congestion. The menthol feeling took a little getting used to, but I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was so excited to receive the Zicam Cold Remedy in the mail today!! Since Halloween I've been feeling a little under the weather so it came just in time to test the product out. I was a little scared at first that I had to spray something into my nose but it really wasn't that bad. I loved the fact that the Zicam Nasal Spray was formulated to shorten the duration of a cold and should be used when the first symptoms start to arise which I noticed more this morning. I am so excited to see how well the product works!!
