Elsewhere on this website I have reviewed one of my favorite products for attacking cold symptoms. That product is Cold-Eeze. My other favorite is Zicam Cold Remedy. Zicam is a nasal gel. You insert the tip into a nostril and pump product into the nose. Repeat with the other side. The product can be reapplied every 2 to 4 hours. I find that every three hours is about right. The stuffy nose/sneezing and general body aches that accompany most colds almost disappear. For me, after-effects from Zicam are nil. I don't have that jittery feeling I sometimes got with other cold products. Sound sleep is no problem. I should warn you that I seldom get colds, and most of mine are mild. Thus, I cannot say that Zicam can defeat colds in people who get hit really hard. But for me, the two products I reach for to get on with life when a cold hits are Cold-Eeze and Zicam. If a sore throat is the first symptom, I reach for the Cold-Eeze. If general aches and pains or nasal congestion hit first, I go for the Zicam. I often use both products in the course of the week's duration of the cold. Next time you feel a cold coming on, give these products a try.
