>I’ve been hearing alot of people praising Zicam. While it might work, I read this in Consumer Reports:
…case reports suggest that nasal zinc may cause loss of smell, possibly permanent.
Personally, I’d rather suffer through an extra day or two of the cold and keep my sense of smell. If you can’t smell anything, you can’t taste anything either.
I swear some of these new fangled drugs have worse side effects than the illness they claim to help out. Gas with oily discharge, anyone?
>I totally agree!
Merry Christmas SFChick!
>I can understand risking some of the crazy side-effects when taking drugs for serious illnesses, but for a cold? Just lay in bed for a day or two and suck it up.
