What happened to Zicam?
Zicam® (zincum gluconicum 2%) is a homeopathic zinc nasal spray that was available
over-the-counter. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised consumers to
avoid intranasal versions of Zicam Cold Remedy® because of a risk of damage to the sense of
smell, leading the manufacturer to withdraw these versions from the U.S. market. The Zicam®
brand has been expanded to include non-zinc formulations.
