    I was prescribed this medication to ease my severe sore strep throat along with Amoxicillin and Benzonatate tablets. The directions clearly say "Swish and gargle 15mls (about one tablespoon) for 15 seconds every 4hrs while awake for pain. Spit out, do not swallow".

    Prescribed for severe sore throat. Initially, I thought pharmacy skipped a step in the gargling instructions. It was like gargling with corn syrup. The company that is producing this drug needs to reinvent the consistency to allow proper usage for gargling and can definitely up the numbing action. Will never use or recommend this product to anyone.

    No dentist on call weekends to get tooth pulled. At first only numbed gum, cheek, tongue but after continued routine dosing for several doses finally helped inner tooth pain also. Had to then continue routine dosing or would lose gained ground completely.

    I have insurance - only had to pay 5 dollars for 2 bottles of 200 doses. So I am in no way rating this from a "worth it for the price" standpoint. I have such bad strep, my tonsils are basically touching each other. Ive been miserable for days, and the second I used the lidocain, a 10/10 on the pain scale went to a 1/10.. for about an hour at a time. DO NOT GARGLE JUST THE LIDOCAIN ... Show Full Comment

    Why would any true doctor prescribe this for sinus infection? You already can't swallow, don't want to eat and now your whole mouth is numb. Does kickback mean anything here? Stay clear of this so called med!!
