  • Be careful to not over-do the Zinc because it can cause a loss of taste which can be temporary - by SEDONACAT
  • I have asthma and I'm going to give zinc a try on my symptoms. Asthma is not a virus but has many of the same symptoms as a cold. The OTC tablets that I have taken for years are no longer working on my symptoms and I may only find peace from asthma in space, which I can't afford and unless they need a Sr. Citizen Char women on Space Lab, that option doesn't exist. I don't think I've had a cold since I was a kid and once I was diagnoses with asthma, it put the cold in question. I wonder, if you claim do not drink citrus juice for 1/2 hour after sucking the zinc tablet, I would think you should not eat citrus either. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. emoticon emoticon - by FLORIDAGHOST

  • This remedy will not cut the cold in half but may cut the symptoms. A cold is a virus where there is no cure and has to run its course. - by BANKER-CHUCK
    I've read this helps but haven't noticed any difference when I've taken zinc myself. - by LADYGREENEYES
