I take Imuran and now Prednisone and I work in a nursing home. I am a big target for colds ! Last winter i was sick one time a month for a good week. I trialed many cold products during this time. I swear by Zicam, its over the counter cold product. My friend is a pharmacist and rec it to me. I get the swabs that go in your nose, they look like a q-tip. It costs about $12 for the box of them. I do them as directed every 4 hours, and keep to the schedule. It is the best $12 you can spend on yourself. You are supposed to start it the first signs of a cold. I had the starts of a cold about 2 weeks, ago went and got my Zicam and sure enough the cold was mild and is long gone.. good luck.. Zicam, Zicam... i can't say enough good things !
