For Best Results:

  • Cold-EEZE® treatment should begin as soon as possible when the very first symptoms of a cold start to appear, such as scratchy or sore throat, coughing, stuffiness, etc.
  • Completely dissolve a Cold-EEZE® lozenge in your mouth. Do not chew. Repeat every 2 to 4 hours as needed.
  • The recommended daily dosage is 6 lozenges per day, which means an 18 count bag/box is a 3-day supply of Cold-EEZE® for adults.
  • Children 12-17 can take 4 lozenges per day.
  • Consult your healthcare professional before giving Cold-EEZE® to children under 12 years of age.
  • Cold-EEZE® is safe to take with most other medications including other symptom relievers.
  • Avoid an upset stomach — do not take Cold-EEZE® lozenges on an empty stomach.
  • Avoid citrus fruits and juices, as well as other products containing citric acid, 30 minutes before and after taking Cold-EEZE® lozenges, as they may diminish product effectiveness.
  • Zinc may interfere with the absorption of minocycline, doxycycline, tetracycline as well as Coumadin. Ask a doctor prior to using Cold-EEZE®.
