    I was prescribed this medication for strep throat - this product has the consistency of maple syrup, gargling with it is impossible. The only thing this product will numb is your tongue because that's as far as it's going to get. This product can't even remotely reach the back of the throat due the thick viscosity.

    Had a sore throat so painful I thought it was strep and went to urgent care. The rapid strep test came back negative so it was just a really painful sore throat. The Dr. gave me this RX for the pain and it helped tremendously! It's pretty thick so I'm not sure how any "gargling" would take place so I just swallow it.

    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". At first glance, I didn't have any concern for taking this medication. I have experienced gargling a warm water salt sol ... Show Full Comment

    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.
