Very concerned about zinc in adhesives. I'm a hi-risk cardiac + type 2 diabetic with peripheral neuropathy. Just bought a 3-pak Fixodent at Sam's and fear using it. How can I return these paks and get credit?

If Sam's won't take it back, you're probably out of luck. Then again, it probably won't hurt just to use the set since the zinc content is pretty low. It only becomes a real risk over prolonged use. Of course, if you don't want to chance it, you can just cut your losses and shop around for the few zinc-free alternatives. I think Dentu-Creme and Sea Bond are zinc free.
