    I’ve been using this product for a while now but this last night it reacted differently. Burned the living crap out of my throat it’s been 12+ hours and still in tremendous pain.

    Burned the living shit out of my throat. It feels EXACTLY like having strep throat. Pain was so bad I didn’t sleep at all last night. Hopped in the shower and turned the water to boiling so hopefully I wouldn’t notice the pain in my throat. It’s been about 8 hours and still no relief from the pain. ITS NOT WORTH TRYING. Save yourself the pain and discomfort please.

    Extreme burning sensation. Extreme discomfort. Rinsing with hot and cold water,saline, and steam did nothing. Marijuana alleviated the pain take it as you will.
