Zicam Nasal Spray Lawyer

Did you lose your sense of smell after using Zicam?

A Warning For The Cold And Flu Season

The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting cooler. This means that cold and flu season is upon us. There are plenty of cold and flu over-the-counter remedies available. Unfortunately, some of these over-the-counter remedies may have long-lasting side effects that can rob you of your sense of smell or taste.

Imagine taking a decongestant to clear your stuffy nose. All of a sudden, you lose your sense of smell. Worst still, you can't taste your grandmother's sweet potato pie. Think it can't happen to you? Think again! Just about three years ago, many people lost their sense of smell after taking Zicam. It can happen to you too.

In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration issued a recall for Zicam. The FDA warned Americans not to use Zicam products because of the potential side effects.

The FDA said at the time that it received at least 130 reports of users losing their sense of smell as a side effect of Zicam. In some cases, these Zicam problems surfaced after only one use.

The use of nasal gel and spray versions of Zicam can cause a permanent loss of smell. As a result, the FDA warned the manufacturer that they are no longer permitted to sell certain products in the United States until they provide data establishing that they are safe and effective. Unfortunately, many people considered filing lawsuits after they have lost their sense of smell or taste after using the over-the-counter cold and flu remedy.

Although the FDA never approved Zicam because it is classified as a homeopathic product, these safety issues now require the manufacturer to go through a formal review process before they will be permitted to market Zicam again.

Given the minimal benefits of the product, which is used to reduce the severity of the common cold, it seems unlikely that the FDA would approve the cold remedy.

The confirmed reports only represent a small number of actual problems experienced by Zicam users. With an over-the-counter product like Zicam that is not used under a doctor's direction, however, the 130 reports only represent a fraction of the number of users who experienced Zicam-related problems.

Matrixx Initiatives, the manufacturer of Zicam, was aware of the reported problems in which users suffered a loss of smell or taste after using their product, but they failed to take steps to protect consumers or adequately warn them about this potential side effect. The company was negligent.

If you have taken Zicam and you have lost your sense of smell or taste, the Accident Attorneys' Group will make them pay for your pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury attorney will assess your case and help you get the compensation you deserve.
