I've had one cold since being on Remi. It was gone in a week, no worse than any other cold. I just took care of it like always - eating light, fever reducers as needed, lots of fluids and rest.
Chicken soup and vitamin C can't hurt. Zicam won't hurt either, however controlled studies have not shown any benefit from it.
Most important, don't panic. While Remi statistically does make people more susceptible to infections. most people get over colds, etc. just as they always have.
