Cold-EEZE® cold remedy is one of many marketed dietary supplements offered to shorten the duration of cold symptoms. According to the manufacturer website, Cold-EEZE® claims to shorten the duration of colds by up to 50%.

Cold-EEZE® lozenges contain zinc gluconate glycine, which according to the manufacturer, "blocks the cold virus from attaching to the receptors and preventing the cold virus from replicating."

Patients should consult with their physician before starting or stopping Cold-EEZE® supplements. More frequent testing may be necessary to see if your INR is altered.
