If you have lost your sense of smell due to Zicam, then you need to contact
Ken Nunn about a Zicam lawsuit. Dealing with large pharmaceutical companies can be a daunting
task. Having skilled drug lawyers at your side will help you protect
your rights. When you're injured, the last thing that you want to worry about

from the insurance companies.
Zicam cold remedy products are over-the- counter medicines used to reduce cold
symptoms. These products are developed, produced, and marketed by Matrixx
Initiatives, Inc. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
advised consumers to stop using certain Zicam products due to the possible link
to a condition known as anosmia, which can result in the permanent loss of smell.
These Zicam nasal products are:
Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel;
Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs;
Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, Kids Size.
The Zicam problems appear to be linked to the presence of zinc gluconate, which
can damage nerves in the nasal cavity. This can leave consumers with an impaired
ability to smell or taste certain foods, which can occur after only one use and
may be permanent. Although Matrixx Initiatives has voluntarily withdrawn these
products from the market, the company’s action comes too late for consumers who
have lost their sense of smell.
In June 2009, after receiving at least 130 reports of people losing their sense of
smell, the FDA issued a warning advising consumers not to use these three products.
Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research
(CDER), warned that “Loss of sense of smell is a serious risk for people who use these
products for relief from cold symptoms. We are concerned that consumers may unknowingly
use a product that could cause serious harm, and therefore we are advising them not to
use these products for any reason.”
