The gel scared me. From what I understand, it’s got the consistency of Vaseline and you rub it on the inside of your nostrils. You want more details, go find out for yourself — but don’t feel obligated to share them with me. The spray’s bad enough. J. michele May 8, 2004 I have this psychological problem where I can’t swallow pills. So anytime I need antibiotics, I get them in liquid form. Holy crapola. Talk about vile. No wonder kids don’t want to take their medicine when they are sick. For the record, Zithromax tastes like liquid chalk mixed with acetone. But it works, so I drink. Come to think of it, NyQuil isn’t exactly a pleasant drink, either. Then again, I’m probably not supposed to be pouring into a cocktail glass over ice and sipping as I watch late night tv. McGehee May 8, 2004 My last cold, I got the Zicam cherry-flavored meltaways pills you could chew, but you’re not supposed to. You have to leave them on your tongue until they disappear. <insert Howard Dean imitation here> After reading this review, the spray sounds downright tasty in comparison. Rodney Dill May 8, 2004 I think Zicam works pretty well too. You should have gone with the Nasal gel based on your experience with the spray. It’s not bad at all. Jay Tea May 8, 2004 Gee, thanks, Rodney, NOW you tell me that… maura May 8, 2004 Yay, Jay Tea! Glad it helped. There’s plenty of clinical trial evidence that it works, too – so long as you take it quick. It works by preventing virus particles from binding to the surface of your cute little cells. Hope you’re back to 100% soon. :o) Jon May 10, 2004 I had the same taste reaction to Theraflu… they had the gall to call it ‘pleasant tasting’. Chris May 16, 2004 Fishermans Friends are tasty! Also, tabasco sauce is a nice drink. It clears out the sinuses. And no, I’m not kidding!
