What are Strefen Honey & Lemon Lozenges?

Strefen Lozenges are a form of treatment that is intended to treat a sore throat and reduce pains in the throat. The active ingredient of these lozenges is flurbiprofen, a drug that belongs to a group called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs work by changing the body’s response to pain, swelling and body temperature.

 

What causes a sore throat?

A sore throat is generally only a short-term condition and only last for a week. There are a number of causes of a sore throat, which include:

  • A cold or the flu
  • Laryngitis (a condition where the voice box becomes inflamed)
  • Tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils)
  • Glandular fever
  • Smoking
  • Heartburn/acid reflux
  • Allergies

In most cases, one of these conditions will be the cause of a sore throat but if a sore throat persists for a longer period of time, then it could be a sign of a more serious condition.

 

Who are these lozenges suitable for?

These Strefen lozenges are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over. They should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the lozenges. These lozenges should also not be used by anyone who any of the following applies:

  • Has had two or more episodes of a stomach ulcer or gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Has asthma or breathing difficulties after using any NSAID or aspirin
  • Taking more than 75mg of aspirin a day, or any other NSAID
  • Has had severe heart, kidney, or liver failure

If you are using medication for any other condition, then speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using these lozenges.

 

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use Strefen?

If you are in the last 3 months of pregnancy, do not use these lozenges. For the first 6 months of pregnancy, or when breastfeeding, speak to a medical professional before using.

 

How should Strefen Honey & Lemon Lozenges be used?

Take a single lozenge and suck is slowly. The effects of the lozenge can take up to 30 minutes to work. Use a lozenge every 3-6 hours if needed but do not use more than 5 lozenges in a 24-hour period. Do not use for longer than 3 days unless told to do so by a doctor. If symptoms persist or get worse, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist for advice.

 

Are there any side effects?

  • Allergic reactions including skin rash, itching, and runny nose
  • Dizziness
  • A headache
  • Mouth ulcers or mouth pain
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Indigestion
