I trusted this over salt solution, worst mistake ever
Pharmacist prescribed this for sore throat, used it over salt solution hoping it would be better than it somehow. Ended up waking up multiple times throughout the night from the worsening pain (I'd used it for a whole day before then).
Don't use this, just gargle salt water.
Not very good.
I'm sure there must be something better than this throat spray. Tastes awful. Gargeling with salty water is good. Almost nothing seems to relieve the pain of sore throats except for losingers. Salt and Vinegar Smiths potato chips are a good pain relief. Just have a bit when you feel dryness or pain in the throat.
Still in pain..and now skint!
This spray is completely useless (in my opinion.) I have used it now over a period of 48 hours for an incredibly bad sore throat (viral infection) and it's made no difference whatsoever. It annoys me that this has been recommended by so many doctors..as it's clearly having little or no effect. And it ain't cheap!
Would not recommend
I was prescribed difflam spray for my really bad sore throat. The first time I used it it just tasted like sugared water. Next time i gave it a shake still tasted like sugared water. It didn't spray came out in a jet. I used every 2 hours. No effect at all. In fact the lozenges I bought over the counter worked better.
My pharmacist recommended this over lozenges, so I tried it. I have swollen tonsils currently from a sickness. The spray makes me gag from the pain of it hitting my tender throat, and it burns as it sits on the flesh. I've been using it every 1 1/2 hours in case it might start working, but it just seems to have worsened my throat
Do not buy
Tried this after suffering with a very severe sore throat. Paid a lot of money for nothing to happen. Do not recommend at all. Pharmacists prescribed me this knowing I am asthmatic and that it's not to be used by asthmatics it took me a while to realise this on the label thinking the pharmacist would know what he was doing.
Worked for me!
I woke up with sore throat and inflamed swollen lymph nodes. I usually take strepsils but thought to try this one. It worked for me. Got rid of sore throat and doesn't hurt anymore when I swallow. Although, having said that I still have a swollen lymph node and when I stopped spraying the pain came back. It is not a remedy and won't cure but at least it keeps the pain at bay and numbs the throat enough to get by. I'd still get tablets or antibiotics.
Expensive and do work
I have a bad sore throat and doctor recommend me Difflam throat spray. So I have a try on this throat spray not just expensive but it do not work for me. Until the point, I can take any food due to the pain. No matter how many time I spray no use at all. But one thing good about its help. When you have a mouth ulcer.
