I am not one to take any meds, but I have no time to get sick. I started taking coldeeze a couple of years ago as soon as I would start to get a cold; sore throat, stuffy nose, etc. Within two days it was gone.

Started taking Cold-Eeze cold remedy lozenges as soon as the first sign of a cold began. My nose ran and I coughed. No fever,no body aches, no sore throat. Mucous was clear. Just a head cold...which lasted for 2 weeks! The longest lasting cold I have experienced in my life. No, Cold-Eeze did NOT "reduce the duration" of my common cold.

Used them for 2 days. At the end of day 2 I lost my sense of smell and taste. It is now 2 days post use and I still can not smell or taste anything.
