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 Citrus RapidMelts® is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 237.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zicam has a fantastic homeopathic product to help shorten an oncoming cold. After receiving my sample I did experience the onset of a cold within days of its arrival. I used a tablet the first night before bed, It dissolved quickly and did not have a bad taste, nor did it leave a "chalky" feeling in my mouth. Over the course of four days I used these tablets every 4 hours, along with my cold medicine. My cough never fully developed, which was good, and I only missed 1 day of work due to my cold symptoms. Overall I would strongly recommend this product and I plan on repurchasing these to have in the house in case of another bout of illness. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I started using Zicam Cold Remedy Rapidmelts three days ago when I woke up with the first signs of a cold starting. The orange flavored tabs really did melt quickly in my mouth and had a light, pleasant taste. I'm happy to say that the sore throat I started with has faded and my nose hasn't been stuffy all day. My nose is still running a bit, but that's probably a good thing so I can see that the mucus is clear. The package recommends that you increase fluids intake and since it's good to have more fluids during a cold, I don't have a problem with the suggestion. I am pleased with this product. Zicam is making it possible for me to feel well enough to be ready for Thanksgiving!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was very excited to be chosen to sample Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts "homeopathic" tablets. The zinc works very well in shortening the length and severity of a cold, but it tastes like zinc even with the natural and artificial flavors. I would have given a higher rating to this product but I take exception to the inactive ingredients of FD&C yellow #6 aluminum lake and artificial flavor being labeled as homeopathic. There were several ingredients that I did not expect to see in a product being touted as homeopathic. In the future I will just be buying zinc tablets as I don't like to use artificial additives in my supplements or food intake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When it comes to the Zicam Cold Remedy RapidMelts, I didn't get the positive results I had hoped for, or more appropriately, my husband didn't as he was the one who caught a cold. He Bagan complaining of a cold and I immediately insisted on him begin taking the Zicam. He took it faithfully thru the whole bottle and he still suffered a week with cold symptoms. In my opinion, that wasn't entirely a success or entirely a fail as there is no way to know how long his cold would have lasted without it. Would I recommend it..... probably. Would I take it in the future to give it another try..... absolutely. I look forward to another test run. Thanks Crowdtap for introducing me to a new product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was a bit skeptical when I first heard about these. There have been so many different products which claim that they can shorten the life of a cold, almost all of them turning out to be hocus-pocus. After trying these complementary in exchange for my honest feedback, I can tell you for a fact that THESE THINGS WORK!! I started taking them at the first sign of a cold as instructed in the directions, and it helped nailed it right in the bud! My partner however who also had the same symptoms and didnt take any, wasnt so lucky. His turned into a bad cold. While I feel bad fornot telling him about these, I remind myself that I needed to have a controlled variable to be able to compare them to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked out perfectly, when I received this in the mail, my kids and my husband were all sick!!! I had my husband take one as soon as I got them, and the 1st day he didn't notice anything and said they don't work. I made him take one the next day and he said by the end of the 2nd day he was feeling a lot better! The 3rd day he took one as well, and by the end of the 3rd day he didn't feel sick at all or have any symptoms! And the kids were both still sick, Bummer!! But hopefully I can find Zicam for kids!! And if they don't have it yet, I pray they do soon because this stuff is awesome!! I'm kinda hoping to get sick now so I can take some too!! LOL So far this product is definitely awesome!!
