Fisherman’s Friend Sugar Free lozenges are a healthier variant of the original Fisherman’s Friend lozenges from 1865 that will help to provide relief for a sore throat and a cough. These lozenges have a mint flavour. These lozenges contain the active ingredient menthol which offers a cooling sensation and can help to provide relief for minor pains and can help to prevent infection.
A sore throat is often itself a symptom of a virus infection, such as a cold or the flu. It can also be caused by smoking or by bacteria getting into the throat. Symptoms of a sore throat include pain when swallowing, a dry, scratchy throat, bad breath, and swollen neck glands. In children, they can also get a temperature or appear less active.
These lozenges are suitable to be used by anyone aged 5 and over who is suffering from a sore throat and can have a lozenge. They should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the lozenges. Anyone who is diabetic should speak to a doctor or Knightsbridge Pharmacy before using.
There is no reason why anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding cannot use these lozenges. Though it is recommended that anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding consults a medical professional for advice before using any treatments.
These lozenges can be used whenever they are needed to help clear a sore throat or a cough.
A side effect is most likely to occur as a result of an allergic reaction to menthol, eucalyptus, or any other ingredient contained in the lozenge. If you notice a side effect, stop using and speak to a doctor or Knightsbridge Pharmacy as soon as possible.
