Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye Bye Cold These Cold Remedy Rapidmelts from Zicam are very effective when taken as directed at the onset of cold symptoms. The tablets melt quickly and do not have an unbearable aftertaste. The orange flavor is light and not overbearing. They are non-drowsy and I did experience any side effects. I took them around the clock as directed and after the first two days my symptoms began to subside. The key to the effectiveness is to take them at the onset. These tablets have become a must-have in my medicine cabinet and my purse for on-the-go. I recommend these tablets and I wish that I had tried them sooner.

It ALWAYS reduces my cold symptoms and reduces the length of my illness. I have highly recommended this product to my friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great find! I tend to catch a cold more often than others. I've tried lots of different meds in my life, all of them dealing with the symptoms. I got this Zicam product as a free sample and I'm very surprised and happy to learn that it can actually "cut" (or shorten the duration of) the cold if taken at the very beginning of symptoms. I didn't know such type of product existed! I didn't try it yet, probably very soon because of the winter, but the other reviews I've read of this product are great. I hope it works as described... They will have a costumer for life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! Although, this isn’t the best tasting product to me I’m sure to others it tastes very good. I did go ahead and use this product at the first sign and symptoms of my cold, which I unfortunately obtained within a few days of receiving the product. These, Zicam Cold Remedy Ultra Orange Cream RapidMelts did shorten my cold symptoms and did ease the runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing and coughing that I was experiencing, with that being said, I can move past the taste to reap the benefits of this cold remedy. I probably won’t purchase this particular flavor of this product in the Zicam product line in the future but I will purchase other flavors. I would highly recommend this product as from my point of view it does live up to all its claims. B

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product! I'm glad that I was chosen to review this product, especially because I was suffering from a itchy throat and runny nose and refused to take medicine that was more for a full blown cold. I usually fight off the urge to take medicine unless necessary, but i like the concept of this precold medicine. It has a okay taste for a pill that you have to let melt in your mouth. I would give it more stars but i didnt like that you jad to take it every 3 hours if symptoms persisted. It's still something I think that i will keep using in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for me! I recently had the opportunity to try Zicam Cold Remedy Ultra Orange Cream RapidMelts. With the weather fluctuating from hot to cold here in Florida it brought a cold with it. I was able to use this product at the first sign of the cold coming on. I have to say it did help ease my symptoms and seemed to reduce the duration on my cold. My experience was that the melts dissolve quickly, have a good flavor and don’t leave behind an after taste. I will continue to keep these on hand to help battle any future colds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me just in time Two days ago I woke up unable to speak, my throat was literally in pain and like Ariel from The Little Mermaid I could not speak. I took a Zicam immediately and with rest, lots of fluids lemon ginger tea and honey I could finally speak the next day. I continued to take the zicam throughout my weekend and was able to return to work as a front desk receptionist by Monday. My boss was totally worried that Saturday when I could barely speak, but I totally impressed her when I called her Sunday night, voice intact.
