The FDA has warned consumers to discontinue use of Zicam Cold Remedy nasal products. Marketed by Matrixx Initiatives, these products are zinc-containing nasal cold remedies used to reduce cold symptoms. Unfortunately, these Zicam products have been associated with a long lasting or permanent loss of sense of smell, also known as anosmia.

Zicam Side Effects: Loss of Smell
The FDA has received 130 reports of loss of smell from people using Zicam. The reports revealed that many Zicam users lost their sense of smell after the first dose, while others experienced anosmia after multiple doses. The Zicam products associated with loss of smell include:
- Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel
- Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs
- Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, Kids Size
Zicam Risk: Anosmia Dangers
Loss of smell can decrease a person's quality of life and hinder their ability to identify hazardous smells such as smoke, gas or odor from spoiled food. In addition, because sense of smell is linked to sense of taste, many people may lose the pleasure of eating. The FDA has urged consumers to speak with their doctor if they experience any Zicam side effects, including loss of smell or taste.
Reports have surfaced that Matrixx allegedly received more than 800 reports of loss of smell, but failed to forward these concerns to the FDA. Though Matrixx believes the FDA warning was unwarranted, they have agreed to voluntarily withdraw Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel and Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs from the market.
