Q: Since the swabs do not contain zinc, would it help to also take one of your zinc products at the same time?

  • A: Thank you for your question, EdS. You may use any nasal form alternately or any oral form alternately. If you would like to treat your cold simultaneously with both forms (nasal and oral), although we are not aware of any drug interactions, the combined actives have not been studied for efficacy. Please follow the dosing schedule of every 3 hours, not to exceed 5 doses of the nasal product in one 24-hour period. Please consult your physician. If you have any further questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to call/text us at 800-833-9532. Our team is available to help Monday - Friday, from 9 - 5 Eastern. We'll be glad to help!

My friend Kate recommended this product to us as she said it helps her colds not be as severe. I’m not sure how this magical swab works but it helps. It’s not a miracle worker but it does noticeably help my symptoms. I gave one to our tour guide and it helped him tremendously. This will be a staple in my medicine cabinet as well as travel med kit.

I had one of those annoying early winter colds with the constant sneezing, runny eyes, congestion, etc which led to a really bad headache throughout the day. I did 2 swabs afternoon and evening - I woke up next day feeling so much better. My head didn’t feel like a bowling ball anymore and im going to say Zicam definitely helped my symptoms!

Helps my chronic runny nose

5 out of 5 stars

Jessica21lauren - 1 year ago
I have a chronic runny nose, it’s enough to drive a sane person crazy. Literally every second of the day I have to wipe my nose with a tissue. Nothing works. I got these nasal swabs because I feel like I have a cold or maybe allergies but I’m going on vacation in a few days so I wanted to get this just in case. Very first thing I noticed 30 minutes after the first use is my runny nose stopped! It is marketed for congestion but I can attest to runny nose too. I did effectively shorten a cold with the fast melts earlier this year and I was completely 100% better on day 3. I think the fast melts have zinc in them though, and from what I have read about zinc is to use it on the affected area so for example if your symptom is sore throat you should use a zinc lozenge or fast melt orally. If your symptom is nasal - then use an intranasal form. Not sure if there is a nasal swab with zinc, I thought these had zinc but it doesn’t appear so.
