Zicam is a nasal cold gel, and while it is an effective over the counter cold remedy, it does contain the element zinc, which has potentially devastating side-effects. The most devastating of the many Zicam side effects is Anosmia that causes a total loss of the sense of smell. While many people consider smell to be an unimportant sense in modern society, we have to remember that the sense of smell allows us to fully taste most food. Additionally, our sense of smell allows us to detect smoke from fires, gas leaks, stoves left on, and a variety of other dangerous fumes and chemicals.
The FDA does not require that drug companies list the harmful side-effects of zinc and these products do not even require FDA approval. This is particularly unfortunate, as zinc seriously damages fragile nasal tissue.
If you have noticed a depreciation of your sense of smell after having taken Zicam, then contact a medical professional immediately. You may also be entitled to compensation, and should contact our attorneys today for a free consultation. We strive to get our clients the just recompense they deserve!
