FAQs
Are Strepsils suitable for kids?

Strepsils can usually be taken by kids aged 6 and over, although we’d recommend that any children taking these products should be supervised, as there is a risk of choking.

 

When soothing sore throats in children, we’d usually recommend Strepsils Children 6+, which are strawberry flavoured and sugar-free, perfect for young teeth.

Are Strepsils halal?

Whether you consider Strepsils to be halal will depend on your personal views regarding medical alcohol.

 

Most Strepsils products contain an ingredient called dichlorobenzyl alcohol, which is a mild antiseptic that helps kill bacteria associated with sore throats and throat infections.

 

Although using alcohol as an intoxicant (to get drunk) is considered to be haram by the majority of Muslims, as dichlorobenzyl alcohol is not an intoxicant and is only included in Strepsils to provide a medical benefit for your health, many Muslims may believe that these products are not haram.

 

Another thing to consider is that dichlorobenzyl alcohol is a synthetic chemical, which means that it is permissible to consume in Islam.

 

At the end of the day, it all depends on your personal views and beliefs and we’d always recommend double-checking the ingredients list of products before taking them, just to be sure they are right for you.

 

Strepsils Triple Action Honey & Lemon lozenges do not contain dichlorobenzyl alcohol, so you may wish to consider this product instead of other Strepsils products if you are unsure.

What is the usual dosage of Strepsils?

Adults and children over 6 will usually take 1 Strepsils lozenge every 2 - 3 hours, taking a maximum of 12 lozenges within 24 hours.

 

However, if your doctor or pharmacist recommends a different dosage for you, you should follow their instructions carefully.

Can I take Strepsils if I’m pregnant?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Strepsils or any other medications.

 

You may be able to take Strepsils original, Strepsils Sore Throat & Cough or Strepsils Sore Throat & Blocked Nose lozenges during pregnancy.

 

However, you should not take Strepsils Triple Action lozenges during your pregnancy or while breastfeeding, we’d recommend asking a doctor or pharmacist to recommend a more suitable remedy.

How do sore throat treatments work?

Depending on the treatment that you use, there will be different active ingredients that have different properties.

 

The main properties of sore throat treatments will either be a painkiller (known as an analgesic) or as an anaesthetic, which numbs the throat area.

How long does a sore throat last for?

A sore throat will usually go away in 5-7 days.

 

If you decide to take antibiotics, then it should go away in 2-3 days.

 

In some cases, it can last for longer.

 

If you do experience a sore throat for a longer period of time, it is recommended that you speak to a doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice.

What flavours of Strepsils are available?

Strepsils are available in a range of delicious flavours, so you can find your favourite when it’s time to ease a sore throat.

 

Some of the most popular Strepsils flavours include:

 

  • Honey & lemon
