All it did was make my mouth somewhat numb for 10 min. There was no relief for my sore throat. So disappointed.

The packaging was so difficult to open and the product was ok but not great. Fishermans Friends work better, cost half as much and are easier to open. I had to pry it open with scissors.

Expensive breath mint

Super disappointed! I bought a pack just this week after seeing an ad on IG and that’s what I get for falling for advertising... Slight cooling effect but did nothing to numb or soothe my sore throat. Basically a breath mint in a fancy dispenser.

Product Good, Packaging a Nightmare

Review Questions:

Review Text: 
For me, BENYLIN® Sore Throat Lozenges worked as advertised to help reduce my sore throat pain. For that reason I would recommend them others. The product's packaging however, for me, having arthritis in both hands and thumbs, was a totally different story. Opening the HEAVY plastic outer shell containing the pill bottle was a painful (for me) trip in itself - I had to use a utility knife with constant fear of slipping and slicing my hand open. Then, once the plastic pill bottle was obtained and after figuring out HOW to open the bottle to obtain a lozenge, actually getting the lid to open was an excruciating painful excercise (for me) given the extreme pressure needed to push the locking arm down far enough to release the lid. Without question, in my 75 years on this planet, THAT was the hardest pill bottle I have ever tried to open. Consequently, once opened, I emptied the lozenges into a more user friendly container. Although the product itself is, in my opinon, is of high quality and works well, the mental giant(s) who designed the packaging (and those who approved it for production) need to focus more on usability and user friendliness rather than cutesy marketing and container appearance. If the response is "we had to child proof" our product, I'd reply with "Excellent job - you Adult proofed it as well".

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!
