can I take Zicam cold remedy when pregnant?
Just a quick question, in case anyone knows.  Is it safe to take Zicam cold remedy during pregnancy.  I'm 39 weeks so I don't see how it could harm the baby, but the pharmacist wouldn't tell me if it was okay, said I'd have to ask my dr, since it's Sunday I can't.  Just wondering if anyone else has ever tried this-I really don't want to be sick and in labor at the same time :)

Not to scare you, but I just saw a Dateline (I think it was Dateline) special on Zicam and how there have been women/men who lost their sense of smell and taste from Zicam...
So, just be cautious...

I agree with dainsey--I didn't see the Dateline show, but I've read about the reported cases of loss of sense of smell online.  I wouldn't take it (pregnant or not).

zycam is NOT safe for taking during pregnancy, I just asked my obgyn today, they said due to its high levels of zinc.
