The product was really helpful. However, getting the lozenge out of the package was awful!! It took me over 5 minutes to try opening the container, and then another 5 minutes for my sister to try opening it! Not great packaging when I don’t feel great and just need the lozenge!

On the advise of a friend, I tried these losenges even though my throat was not sore. More of a dry cough really. My tongue froze immediately. Kept swallowing, without swallowing the losenge, and my cough calmed down right away!

Not bad

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
For severe sore throats it suppresses but does not completely suppress the pain, and for less severe sore throats it mostly temporarily suppressed the pain. Two complaints: 1: for some reason, it makes the mouth feel numb, with a tingling sensation 2: the opening mechanism sucks. It’s odd to get a hang of and you have to press the side panel fairly hard while using your thumb nail to bring the top up, and the small plastic bit connecting the top to the lid seems flimsy and easily breakable. Might also want to reconsider the shape of the lozenge, maybe a ball instead of an oval? (To better fit the opening)
