I have used Zicam a few times and never had any problems, I used it because I have allergies, it is a nasal spray. Is that what you used?

I used the mist you make four sprays in the mouth at each use

Tsco:

No, I never sprayed it in my mouth, I just did one spray in each nostril (must not be the same stuff). Maybe 4 sprays in your mouth is too much, I don't think I would do that, they have Vit. C sprays I would use that instead.

Hey Liz the nasal spray was actually taken off the market because folks were having different issues.

Where did you see that, I googled Zicam nasal spray and did not see that it was taken off the market. There are side affects from these sprays and cold meds that can affect some people. I never used the spray very often, just once in a great while.

I know antihistamines cause me to have heart palpitations. For instance flowmax nasal spray.

Antihistamines trigger afib for me.

Decongestant cough medicine take all of 33 seconds to put me into AFIB,
MSG takes longer
