Advantages: Easy to use, fast relief, readily available
I am the first to admit that I am a complete and utter baby when I have a sore throat. I hate it. I can cope with anything else but if my throat goes it is best to just avoid or ignore me until it is better! Whenever I come down with the dreaded sore throat, I always make sure I have a multitude of medicines around me. One of those are these Halls throat lozenges.
Halls lozenges come in many different flavours - blackcurrent, original, extra strong, menthol and a few more which I cannot remember. Personally I always go for the original flavour as the extra strong really feels like it is tearing my throat out because it is so strong! The original ones come in a blue foil packet which is rectangular in shape. It has the "Halls" logo in big lettering down the middle and the ingredients on the back. The pack is small enough to fit into your pocket or bag and contains around 10 - 15 lozenges with each one being individually wrapped in white Halls paper. You can buy these in any chemist or major supermarket and they cost between 45p-60p a pack which isn't too bad. At the moment they are on offer in Superdrug for 2 for 70p.
You should not suck/eat more than 2 packs a day - I think two packs is a little too may to have personally and I try to limit myself to less than a pack.
The lozenges themselves are square and these ones in particular are clear in colour. They are boiled sweets and you should suck them rather than crunch them up when you put them in your mouth. Crunching them will not have the desired effect to help soothe your sore throat. These are not suitable for small children. When you suck on one of these lozenges, the vapours and menthol are released whic are what soothe your throat and ease the pain. Depending on how bad your throat is will determine how much these lozenges soothe it. If your throat is only a little bit sore then it tend to completely get rid of it for a while. But these are not a cure for the pain, they are just for some fast and temporary relief.
I always find the lozenges work for me and do temporarily get rid of the pain I am feeling in my throat. I also find if my nose is bunged up the vapours clear my nose a little bit and allow me to breathe.
I highly recommend them. They work well and do what they say they will do. The only down side to them is the indivdual wrapping can be a bit of a pain as it sometimes sticks to the lozenge and you have to sit for ages picking it off or end up eating it!
