Side effects from Zicam Ripid Melts after 2 days of taking it I started getting sores in my mouth and headache. After 4 days I noticed a swelling in my neck right by the thyroid gland on the left side it became the size of a tennis ball. I stooped Zicam imitatively. My mouth was sore, my throat felt tight and try and my neck felt tight day 5 sever diarrhea and more swelling in my neck. Drinking lots of water, green tea and rinsing my mouth with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar with one cup of water, cold compression on my swollen neck. 5 days after stopping Zicam Rapid Melts the sore in my mouth is getting better, my swollen thyroid gland is getting smaller, the try throat is gone. I never will take Zicam again it was the most scariest thing seeing a grows on your neck with all the other side effects.
I had a colonoscopy on Aug. 05 and took the Suprep kid the day before. My BP is normally around 120/72 and the highest it got while at the surgery center doing the procedure was 147/93. The following Sat. morning my head woke me up like it was exploding.....it got better but kept feeling like it was throbbing but not bad. Finally on Thursday I decided I needed to get my husbands bp machine and check it. To my surprise it was 174/102!! Long story short I went to the Ed and they gave me some meds and got it down. I'm scheduled for sonars this Thursday but after doing some research I have discovered that others have experienced extremely high bp after their colonoscopy.
