ConsReduces pain.....but could do more.

A few weeks ago I woke up with a sore throat that was pretty uncomfortable and made eating and drinking pretty unpleasant. I had tried Strepsil Originals in the past and so, as I had done in the past, I reached for them again. Why use them? The aim of these lozenges is to provide relief from the...

“No thanks”

published 12/03/2012

ProThey are soothing short term

ConsNo t a pleasant taste

I hate to have a sore throat, but I probably hate to suck on a throat tablet even more. I detest the taste of every single one I have ever had the misfortune to eat. Probably the ones we buy the most often are the Strepsils brand. I know these come in a range of different ‘flavours’ but the...

“Relief for a Sore Throat”

published 13/03/2012

ProWorks for me

ConsNone

A sore throat must be one of the most horrible things to suffer from especially if its so bad that you find it hard to swallow anything. I used to suffer a lot from sore throats when I was younger and then I started smoking from a young age and they got worse and worse. Yes I know I should have...

“No need to Whisper”

published 19/06/2001

ProMany varieties for different symptoms.

ConsExpensive

This is an opinion about Merocaine. No I do not mean the Punk Band from Dundee. I am actually taking about Strepsils instead. Confusion ends here! There is no convincing medical research that proves that antiseptic lozenge and sprays actually work for sore throats. Some preparations contain a...

"Ahhhh!" Come on, you can do better than that. I've got a very sore throat and a croaky voice and yes, I do know it's the wrong time of year. So a little more sympathy please. All my BoyFriend says is that I sound very earthy and sexy - huh! But when I suggest we should play doctors and patients...

ProEases the pain

ConsSoothing effects don't last long

It had just gone 11 last night, and I decided to make myself a cuppa before going to bed – not something I normally do, because I’m up and down in the middle of the night needing the loo if I have too much to drink before bed. Last night was different though; my throat was a bit dry...

ProVariety of flavours, slight medicinal value

ConsDoes not greatly help your throat, too expensive, ...

A couple of weeks ago I had this terrible sore throat, which was in part caused to my over indulgence in the booze and the cigarettes the night before. The wife had a strip of Strepsils at home and suggested I try them. Before I get into my reaction to the effects of these lozenges I will first...

Prosoothes sore throats

Consmay not be suitable for everyone

For some reason I always get a sore throat or throat infection in cold weather. Whenever I swallow it feels like I’m swallowing glass. Because I get them a lot I always make sure that I have some strepsils lozenges in the cupboard waiting for one to come. I have tried a few sore throat products...

~*~ The Background ~*~ Last Friday morning I was feeling a bit funny and that afternoon, I was feeling worse. Come Saturday, my throat was killing me, so before going into work, I popped to the Boots down the road. This is one of the largest Boots stores in the country, and yet they only had one...

ProStop you coughing when sucking them

ConsDon't really do that much to rid you of the cough

Aah! It's that time of year again where we find ourselves infected with the vicious cold and cough germs. I have recently fallen victim to the dastardly bug and am trying desperately to keep going with the aid of many different remedies! As always when I have a tickly throat I equip myself with a...

Cons-

I thought I was doing quite well this year and was getting quite cocky over the fact that I had managed to avoid the dreaded lurgy. My friends all seemed to be dropping like flies but I remained fit and well up until a few days ago. The warning signs were there as they usually are. I had an itchy...

What does a foal and my throat have in common? Both are a little hoarse. I tell you, seeing as I can barely speak right now, I’m grateful that the internet exists as a medium to get across my terrible jokes! That’s right, I’ve been struck down with yet another cold, and as well as having a nose...
