Cold-Eeze Side Effects Lawyer: Zinc Destroys Sense of Smell!
You see, Cold-Eeze has been found to cause anosmia, or a loss of smell and taste. Many Cold-Eeze users experience horrific, almost unbearable burning directly after applying the nasal spray. Most nasal spray stings a little bit, so they continue the application, but within one or two days the Cold-Eeze users who experience this pain suddenly cannot smell or taste any longer. When the cold passes a few days later (Cold-Eeze gets this right!) smell and taste senses have not returned. It is not until these poor patients visit a doctor that they are informed of the devastating truth. Once anosmia sets in, those sense cannot be recovered. Cold-Eeze nasal spray permanently cripples the sense of smell and taste.
The active ingredient in Cold-Eeze, Zincum Guconicum, is sometimes referred to as Zinc Gluconate. It was first used as a nasal spray in the 1930's as an experimental treatment for polio, but it did not improve the condition of polio patients. Instead, doctors found that it often disabled the patients' sense of smell. Unfortunately, doctors are making that discovery all over again today.
If you or a loved one has used Cold-Eeze and suffered intense burning or loss of smell, contact a lawyer right away. It may be too late to recover from the crippling effects of Cold-Eeze, but a lawyer can help you recover damages and bar this debilitating drug from hands of innocent invalids.
