Cough Drops & Lozenges
Whether your throat is scratchy and irritated from a cold, from coughing as a result of your cold, being out in the cold or just from plain screaming at the top of your lungs at a concert, our cough drops are designed to relieve throat and bronchial irritation quickly. Acting as both a cough suppressant and oral anesthetic, the drops quickly go to work to stop the cough then relieve any irritation caused by the excessive coughing or any other factors.
How do cough drops work? Cough drops, usually made with menthol, often soothe and cool sore throats by relieving inflammation. They can also help clear stuffy sinus passages and break up chest congestion. This usually helps a person to cough less and breathe easier. Since coughs are usually caused by irritation in the throat, menthol from the cough drops are typically released when a person sucks on it, and then can naturally alleviate swelling and soothe the affected areas.
