I thumbed down this deal. Zicam products are homeopathic remedies, in other words they do not contain an active ingredient that is clinically proven to do anything in the human body. Any effect that a person feels from this medication is most likely placebo.

Agreed. It's an absolutely BS product. You'd be better off doing nothing, because then you'd still have $10.

Thumbs down for homeopathic. Better off ripping up and throwing away a $10 bill than buying this and giving kids magic "cold remedy crystals"

Although it looks like this post might be getting artificially promoted anyway...

This and cold-eeze has always worked for me, in cutting down on symptoms and duration of the common cold symptoms. The lozenges are all I use and only as directed, so not overused.
Best way to know for sure, I'd say, is to try the lozenges (can't speak to the other ways)........BUT you have to do so at the 1st signs of coming down with something!
For me that's usually a tingling in the back of my throat/nose, or scratchy throat, basically as soon as something is different for you. We all should know our bodies by now enough to know when something is off, though I did have a doctor comment once that some ppl are more in tune with their bodies.
Anyway just my input from experience for years using it.....btw I've been a nurse for 30 plus years and many started using such products when it was the rage....just as all things though everything does not work the same or as well or better for each of us.
My advice is to try a zinc product, your choice, nothing to lose, and if it works for you (HAVE TO BEGIN ASAP, as symptoms start), then wonderful, if not back to square one...
More info: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseas...Q-20057769

Forgot to say...basically Zinc supposedly stops the germs from being able to implant well or deep into the mucus membranes of our throats, nose etc. by coating the lining to prevent it....that is where you get the "funny taste of foods" after the lozenges. and why it's important to start immediately to prevent the germs from also replicating, is the rationale. I keep some on hand at home so no time lapse from symptoms to start of lozenges.
Stay well! Smilie

.... How could you possibly know that you cut down on how long the symptoms were going to last? You couldn't

I started using these this year for the first time and so far I haven't been sick. Whenever I feel a sore throat or just icky feeling coming on I take a couple that day and by the next day I am fine. Last year I was much sicker so I'll keep using them. This is a good deal for those who wish to use them.

But its homeopathic surely it's a scam, you are much better off suffering mindlessly.

You act like all homeopathic is a scam. I'm seriously not here to argue. If you don't like the deal then move on.
