About this deal

Of course, keeping your fluids up and drinking warm drinks like honey and lemon can help to soothe your throat, but there’s nothing quite like a lozenge to help to alleviate your painful symptoms and to make your sore throat feel a little better.

Sore throats can be caused by all sorts of things including colds, flu, allergies, smoke, an injury, gastro reflux or just talking too much. Dichlorobenzyl alcohol 1.2mg, Amylmetacresol 0.6mg, Vitamin C 100mg (Ascorbic acid / Sodium ascorbate), Methol, Tartaric acid, Orange flavour, Propylene glycol, Sunset yellow (E110), Ponceau 4R (E124), Liquid glucose, Liquid sucrose. [ Source] Strepsils Menthol Lozenges Some drugs may have Authority Required (Streamlined) status which does not require an explicit approval from Medicare, instead the doctor can use the Authority code found in the published Schedule for a given drug/indication.Sore throats can be uncomfortable and bothersome, but fortunately, there are various medicines available to help alleviate the symptoms. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore different types of sore throat medicines and their usage. We will specifically focus on popular products such as Covonia Cough Lozenges Original, Difflam Sore Throat Rinse, Fisherman's Friend Honey & Lemon S/Free, Fisherman's Friend Aniseed, Halls Mentholyptus Citrus Sugar-Free, Halls Soothers Med Sweets Cherry, and Halls Soothers Peach + Raspberry. Covonia Cough Lozenges Original 51G: Throat sweets are very rarely labelled as vegan, even if they do not contain any animal ingredients. This is because virtually all prescription and over-the-counter medicines have to undergo animal testing as well as human testing to gain a product license in the UK. As our products must comply with the regulations in countries where they are marketed, we may be requested on limited occasions to support the safety or efficacy of certain ingredients and/or products.” Strepsil Consumer Relations

As honey is made by bees, it obviously isn’t suitable for vegans. But it’s not just the honey-flavoured throat sweets that vegans should avoid. Many other throat lozenges also have hidden animal-derived ingredients. What’s more, throat sweets are sometimes tested on animals. The cherry and the strawberry flavours of Halls Soothers are vegan-friendly as they do not have any animal-derived ingredients and have not been tested on animals. The only potential issue here is potential cross-contamination with non-vegan products in the factory. Difflam Sore Throat Rinse offers targeted relief for sore throats with its active ingredient, benzydamine hydrochloride. This rinse has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, which help reduce swelling and alleviate pain. To use the rinse, dilute it with warm water as instructed and gargle for 30 seconds before spitting it out. Use the rinse every 1.5 to 3 hours as needed, ensuring that you do not swallow it. Consult your healthcare professional if symptoms persist or if you have any underlying medical conditions.

The definition of veganism according to The Vegan Society is “Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose”. If you’re suffering from a sore throat and are vegan you should go for vegan throat lozenges such as Covonia Medicated Sore Throat Lozenges. Although Halls Soothers are sold as a sore throat relief product in the UK, they do not contain antibacterial or antiviral active ingredients. In some hot countries, Halls are used as refreshing sweets rather than medication. They are not, therefore, subject to the same animal testing requirements as some other over-the-counter medications like Strepsils. Some over-the-counter throat lozenges are not suitable for vegans as they contain animal ingredients like honey. Even if no animal ingredients are listed, throat lozenges or their ingredients may have been tested on animals.


Other varieties such as Halls contain menthol, peppermint oil and/or spearmint as their active ingredient(s). Honey lozenges are also available. Halls Mentholyptus Citrus Sugar-Free lozenges are a popular choice for soothing sore throats. These sugar-free lozenges contain menthol and provide a refreshing citrus taste. The menthol helps alleviate throat irritation and provides temporary relief. For optimal results, dissolve one lozenge in your mouth every two hours or as needed. It is essential to follow the instructions and consult a healthcare professional if symptoms persist or if you have any underlying medical conditions. Halls Soothers Med Sweets Cherry 45G: Authority to prescribe an Authority medicine is granted for specific indications and/or for certain patient circumstances.
