  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I took Zicam rapidmelts. Two doses, one at 11am another at 2pm. By 4pm that day I starting feeling nausea, my stomach felt tight, and had a pain on the right side of my lower abdomen. Today, 20 hours later from when the pain started I still have pain on the right side of my lower abdomen. When I sit/lay/land still it does not hurt. Only when I move. I've tried passing gas, as well as bowel movement. No improvement. I have no fever, or other symptoms. Is this pain related to the Zicam, or is it something else. Is there something I can do, or try to relieve the pain? Should I go to the doctor now, or should I wait?

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I had an injection of Kenalog-60 and Rocephin-1 gram on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2013. On Monday, 2/27, I took one Cefdinir 300MG and 1 Zicam RapidMelt. After a few hours I began napping on and off and having terrible nightmares and I was unable to tell if I was awake or asleep. I stopped the meds and by Tuesday morning symptoms have started to subside. On Wednesday, today, I am better but still feel drugged.
