Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is it safe to take zocalo if you are taking humora and methotrexate
Is it safe to take all three of these together? I need to know if there is any adverse side effects of taking these drugs at the same time?
- Zinc content
How many mg of Zinc Gluconate were in the 4oz spray bottle???
It always worked for me and have come down with colds since the great product is off the market. Other manufacturers must be happier selling relief medicines.

- Bad nosebleed (sudafed related?) (1 response)
I have the rhinitis as a result of rebound syndrome from using nasal sprays for years. I use the Flonase to somewhat alleviate the need for the over-the-counter sprays (first two drugs listed). In spite of that, I rarely, if ever, have nosebleeds. I also rarely, if ever, get colds. However, yesterday I decided I definitely was getting a cold and decided to take some 12-hour Sudafed. I took my second dose a couple of hours early and next thing you know my nose was bleeding fairly profusely all night. I tried the recommended method of tilting the head forward and holding the nose shut for 10 minutes but all that did was fill my head with blood and when I let go all kinds of blood and clotted blood came out of my nose and mouth making a huge mess. What worked for me after hours of trying was tilting the head slightly back, putting up with the blood trickling down my throat and trying not to breathe or irritate the bleeding nostril. Periodically I'd have to cough up or blow out some clotting because it became too much to handle but eventually this method worked for me. I've decided to refrain from taking anymore Sudafed or nasal sprays for the time being at least until I'm sure the nosebleed is completely gone.

From this study (12 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?
