Avatar f tn I have a horrible cold.. am i allowef throat lozenges? Nothing is helping i have been drinkin hot honey and lemon all days and gargling salt water..
Avatar f tn I have been using commit lozenges since February 2. 2008. I am wondering if they have any negative side effects, anyone know, I am having some health issues (sore throat, flu like smptoms, and skin conditions). Oh yeah, I use about 6 - 8 per day.
Avatar f tn When I have a sore throat (which I have at the moment) I take lozenges and and pain killers. Here I am at 3am feeling really poorly with a sore throat and have just sucked some lozenges and taken some pain killers. I have been on Effexor XR for quite a few years, and always sucked lozenges and taken cough mixtures. What happens if I do this then? I have frequent sore throats. Never thought I shouldn't do this.
Avatar m tn Go ahead and try the throat lozenges. If it doesn't get better consider the possibility that this could be common things like a viral infection, acid reflux, voice misuse. Chronic throat problems (if yours indeed becomes this) are best diagnosed by an ENT specialist.
Avatar m tn t seem to be doing anything. The lozenges temporarily relieve the pain, but not completely. I currently do not have health insurance, so seeing a doctor is a last resort, right now. I've read similar symptoms of being throat ulcers and in the past I have had health issues due to stress. If you could help diagnosis this, it would be greatly appreciated and what remedies there are. Thanks for your time. Hope to hear from you soon.
Avatar m tn just gave me some throat lozenges and a have a great day. This pain has been ongoing for about a week now. Ive tried warm salt water, lemon and honey water and teas, throat spray, etc. . There is no pain in my ears or abdomin, nor any congestion or sneezing. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I would recommend for your to try Chloraseptic throat spray (the throat spray is sugar-free) or Chloraseptic sugar free lozenges. These contain benzocaine which is a local anesthetic that temporarily relieves throat pain or irritation. These products are usually used every two hours as needed and you can find them at most pharmacies.
Avatar f tn I have been told the only thing you can take for pain is tylenol, but with a sore throat you can also have cepacol lozenges. Also gurgling warm salt water helps me as long as my gag reflex doesn't kick in!

Avatar f tn have a sore throat and my symptoms keep worsening. I am also on Effexor XR and I know I can't take nurofen cold n flu or aspirin... I have some sore throat lozenges at home which have dequalinium chloride as the active ingredient along with ascorbic acid. I have tried searching the internet for possible interactions but I can't find anything in regards to that. Is there something about it I should be worried about? If so, what alternatives would you suggest?
Avatar f tn For the past three days, I've gotten a total of 5 hours of sleep due to my throat pain. It's constantly itchy and irritated. I have lozenges, throat sprays and caugh syrup, none of which relieves my symptoms. What I'm interested in finding is a medicine that will just numb my throat. I've actually been contemplating squirting some orajel down there. My caughs leave me gasping for air just to caugh again and its driving me crazy!
Avatar f tn I have a sore throat. Is there any lozenges that I can use that won't harm my baby?
Avatar n tn nothing. Recently for the past month I have had a sore throat throughout the day. Lozenges lessen the soreness but it does not go away. My throat is most sore whenever I wake up. I don't smoke, don't drink etc. Can someone please help!!!
Avatar f tn Drinking plenty of fluids, gargle with saline solution or medicated gargles, lozenges and taking pain medications as prescribed may help. If symptoms persist, it is best that you inform your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
1467213 tn?1304214305 m having is a very irritated throat. Sometimes even soda burns when I swallow. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this symptom and if so what did you use to sooth it? Thanks for your feedback ...
Avatar m tn Trouble swallowing may suggest foreign body, obstruction and throat issues like infection or inflammation. If it persists, further evaluation may need to be done and diagnostic tests such as imaging studies and endoscopy may be done. Medicated gargles and lozenges may help provide relief. A referral to an ENT specialist may also be done. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn It feels like an object is in my throat. It is not painful, but it agitates me. I tried lozenges, but that didnt really help either. Is this something I need to get check?
Avatar n tn Do you have other associated symptoms like throat pain, fever, sneezing, and body ache? You can do warm saline gargles and drink little warm water. Lozenges can soothe the throat. Avoid cold foods. If it persists, consult an ENT specialist for evaluation and further advice.
Avatar m tn I keep a humidifier on. It helps that my throat doesn't get dry. Also I do lozenges. Right now I am having a litle pain in my nostrils. I have to watch that closely. Last time on Tx, I got an infection in my nose that hurt WORSE that anything else in Tx. There was absolutely nothing that would ease the pain for several days. Ugh. This time I would get help sooner, rather than later.
Avatar n tn Ive had a pain on one side of my throat for about 6 weeks. It is worse in the morning and evening, and seems to be worse then I am tired or dehydrated. It ranges from mild discomfort to sever pain. I can generally only feel it when I swallow, and sometimes when I talk. I went to the doctor when it first started and he said it must be something viral and there is nothing he could do about it. After 5 weeks i went back and he prescribed me some lozenges, which are doing nothing.
Avatar n tn Ok i have a sore throat and its bothering me. Is there something over the counter i could take?
11928406 tn?1431049111 So I got lozenges for my sore throat but I havent taken it yet. Is it safe to take while pregnant?? Im 30 weeks 4 days... if not or if you dont know is their any ideas you have on how to help my sore throat and stuffy nose..??
Avatar n tn Since you are having pharyngitis or sore throat,so once sore throat is treated,these sensation will also return. Nonprescription over the counter drugs of ibuprofen and paracetamol (acetaminophen) both help relieve throat pain and reduce fever.Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day and use over-the-counter throat lozenges. Salt water gargle is also a good way to relieve a sore throat. If the symptoms persist then pls consult an ENT surgeon and start with antibiotics.
Avatar m tn raw egg, milk, drop of vanilla essence. Some kind of throat lozenges?
Avatar f tn I swear by zinc lozenges on the first onset of a sore throat. I'm only 5 Weeks pregnant and wouldn't you know it, I have the start of a sore throat. anyone know if it's ok to take the lozenges? I know, I know, I need to ask my OB but I don't even have one in place yet since I'm so early on.
