  • From this study (11 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?
