Being sick is no fun for anyone. Trying to confirm that your cold medicine is gluten-free when you feel horrible seems like the hardest task in the world. There is a list that I use as my go-to for gluten-free medication information that can be viewed here. My dad swears by Cold-Eeze. Every time I have had a cold since he started to use it, he is always telling me to go get some. I have never gone out of the way to check the gluten-free status up until I received an email about Cold-Eeze. I was thrilled when I found that it was gluten-free!
Cold-Eeze is available in lozenges or oral spray. There are 10 different flavors of the lozenges, including 4 sugar-free flavors. Those flavors are:
- Honey Lemon
- Strawberries & Cream
- Tropical Orange
- Lemon Lime
- Mint Frost
- Sugar Free Honey Lemon
- Sugar Free Wild Cherry
- Sugar Free Pomegranate
- Sugar Free Chocolate Mint (safe for diabetics)

Here are a few things you should know:
- The Cold-EEZE proprietary (zinc gluconate) formula is believed by researchers to interfere with the cold virus’ ability to reproduce.

For Best Results:
- Cold-EEZE treatment should begin within 24-48 hours of the start of a cold and be used daily until all symptoms resolve. The earlier, the better.
- 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 stomach upset — 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.

Two Sprays & Go!

Other key facts include:
- Each bottle contains at least 45 doses (90 sprays).

The lozenges are labeled “gluten-free” on the back of the box and I was assured that the spray is as well. I am not a fan of traditional cold medicines at all. The side effects are almost worse than enduring the symptoms from the cold, in my opinion. I love that Cold-Eeze is homeopathic and doesn’t cause drowsiness, light headedness or affect blood pressure. I am going to make sure to keep this on hand for the next time I have any inkling of a cold, so I can try to shorten the duration.
