No effect on me unfortunately

published

I have used this twice now during bouts of tonsilitis. The first time 2 years ago, it was prescribed by my doctor (UK) as I was pregnant and couldn't drink fluids. She told me to use 8 sprays then gulp a pint of water down each time. I don't remember it helping much. Now I have tonsilitis again and was given antibiotics but my throat is so horrendous I cant even swallow my own saliva without wincing so I asked the pharmacist for the spray again as I just wanted to try anything that might help and I didnt think lozenges would be any good as the sucking would cause more saliva. I'm sad to say it had no effect again. I wish it had! I'm not saying dont buy it, other reviewers have mentioned good results, it just didnt work for me (twice)

Purchased in September 2019.

Still taste chemicals in throat a week later

published

It was effective in treating my sore throat, but a week later I can still taste the chemicals in the back of my throat and am spitting up chemicals. I would never have used it had I known about the long lasting effects.

BE realistic ...it’s an over the counter throat spray!

published

It’s time people realised there isn’t anything magic a doctor can give you for a simple cold & sore throat . . Be realistic..Gargle salt water if you want cheap , gargle this if you like chemist stuff...same throat cleaning effect but this also numbs to give some relief from pain. BUT NOTE you’ll still have to Be brave and last the few days of discomfort...get a grip!

Useless spray

published

Didn’t affect at all even after 4-5 uses. Infact I found my situation worsening after use. I resorted back to home remedies. Don’t waste money on this. Not recommended at all .

Purchased in February 2019 for $10.00.

Perfect!

published

This product has saved my sore throat and inflamed gums from wisdom teeth pain. Not sure why so many bad reviews on here. It’s worried for me for the past few days

Does nothing

published

It kind of relieve the pain for a while but it actually doesn’t help your throat to get better. Also, I hate the numbness feeling leaves in your tongue... Is not worth the money at all (pretty expensive).

Cause palpitation

published

When I used the spray the palpitation come to my heart, usually I use tablet every day to stop palputation, I don't want to use it again specially I dont feel well in my throat.


Awful

published

The spray does nothing- nothing good, anyway. Over duration of use I noticed my throat get more and more sore after every application. This is an awful product, avoid at all costs.


God send!

published

Ive just got home from hospital after having a tonsillectomy to improve my obstructive sleep Apnoea. This product numbs the back of my throat nicely to be able to eat and drink! Highly recommend. I'd be very poorly without it


Rubbish

published

Used on day 4 of tonsillitis. Had no effect whatsoever nor did it ease my daughters sore throat. Waste of my money At £8 . Save yourself any disappointment.

Didn’t work

published

Think they changed the formula of this. Used to work wonders on me but since a couple years back, doesnt have any effect on me. Wouldn’t recomment it to anyone.

Cause hoarse voice

published

Dr recommended me to use the spray type two years ago when I had soar throats. After I used I lost my voice completely instead of getting better. But I didn’t think about causing from spray. But I used long time after I lost my voice again. Since then I stopped. But yesterday I had lollies type as I didn’t pay attention when I bought it. It was diflam Lollies. I lost my voice again!! They should warn some ppl might have allergic reaction from the medicine and make it worse and cause hoarse voice.

Shocking product

published

Was recommended by the pharmacist to use this spray for a sore throat due to a cold paid nearly £7 for it and it's actually made it worst if anything!


Gives amazing relief to sore throat

published

I had a sore throat for over a week. I started using this spray on day 3 of my cold and it worked wonders. It numbs the pain. I wish I'd known about it earlier!


Does not help sore throat

published

Pharmacist advised me to use this spray for a long lasting sore throat and it’s not giving relief. If anything using this product has actually made the sore throat worse

Waste of time & money!!!

published

Told by my Doctor to get this from Pharmacist for a severe sore throat, the Doctor told me they were Not allowed to provide this from the Surgery that I visited.
Purchased from Pharmacist as directed and paid £6.89 expecting it to sooth my throat and have some sort of effect, but this product has done nothing after 3 days use, what a waste of time & money!!!
Can probably see why the Doctors are Not allowed to sell it now but Why tell me to buy it from a Pharmacist???
Will now try salt water as other reviews have mentioned.

Doesn't work at all

published

Purchased this as pharmacist suggested strongest one. Absolute waste of money. Hardly feel any improvement (used other brands in a past which worked immediately you can tell rightway), this has hardly anything in it apart from purified sweetened water. Rubbish!
