They are quack concoctions for the ignorant and gullible, so most of you should buy them.

Google: zicam smell class action

I have a smell disorder and on the forums I read, there are lots of people who say they lost their sense of smell after taking Zicam. And, Rush Limbaugh endorses it.

Interesting, haven't heard about the loss of smell syndrome.

The people who think they lost their sense of smell after taking Zicam are as crazy as the people who think it works.

It's a "homeopathic" placebo with only harmless traces of anything other than salt water.

I think it has zinc in it. Zinc taken orally is helpful for people who have diminished smell. I'm assuming too much zinc in contact with the olfactory nerves might might kick them into gear too long, too strong and burn them out.

I can't say for Zicam or Airborne, but I did try those Cold-Eeze zinc lozenge things, and they gave me the WORST headache I'd ever gotten-- kind of a weird numbing sensation. Could be that I'm specifically sensitive to the zinc, I don't know... but there was no question in my mind that it came from the lonzenge (numbing sensation in throat first, followed by bizarre numbing sensation in head and awful, awful headache) ... beware!
