This productive is not as effective as other Zicam products, in my opinion. I think it may have helped some, but it wasn't quick. It is an easy delivery method however, You simply empty the packet on your tongue and let it dissolve. This isn't necessarily instant either, but the time for it to dissolve fully isn't awful. The texture is not unpleasant but I was ready for it to be gone by the time it was. The taste is pleasant at first. However, it does leave a weird aftertaste. Overall, this would not be the first product I would recommend or buy.
