Pump action terrible
Whilst the Difflam Spray numbs the throat the pump action top is intermittent and very frustrating. I exchanged one thinking I had a faulty one but the second was exactly the same. Very annoying.

No effect on me unfortunately
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)

Amazing product worked in 2 minutes
I had tonsillitis for 3 days and was very sick, dehydrated and weak as I hadn’t eaten in 3 days as the pain swallowing was so bad. Nothing I tried reached the area or numbed it (salt gargle, Medicare’s gargle, lozenges, Panadol syrup) THEN my husband found this and wow within 2 minutes it had numbed the exact area enough for me to drink and eat. The numbing effect dulled from about 30 minutes and pain returned in about 60 minutes later but it was long enough for me to eat and drink and at other times to fall asleep. It is currently 30 hours aft...er my first use and I’m so glad to have discovered it! I googled it to see what other products there are in the range and was really surprised to see so many as reviews. I guess it depends on your symptoms and other things going on in your body. But for me, well, thanks to the difflam spray I got to spend quality time with my children today for the first time in 4 days and I feel a lot more human than I did yesterday! I recommend this product
Still taste chemicals in throat a week later
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.

Horrible Spray. Does nothing
Was given this spray by pharmacists as "Best for the sore throat" - Every time getting it and hoping it will help, however it never does anything to my throat... :( Doesnt help me at all....

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

Cause hoarse voice
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.
