Tyrozets Lozenges

Tyrozets Lozenges provide effective relief from sore throats and minor mouth irritations in adults and children aged 3 years and over. The dual action formula contains tyrothricin, an antibiotic to help fight throat infection and benzocaine, a local anaesthetic that numbs sore throat pain. The lozenges dissolve in the mouth, gradually releasing the active ingredients which reach the painful throat area at the back of the mouth.

Tyrozets Lozenges may also be taken to relieve irritation after mouth and throat surgery, for example having your tonsils taken out.

Tyrozets Lozenges are for short term treatment only. If, after 2 days of taking this medicine, your symptoms have not improved, you should consider discontinuing use and speak to your doctor or pharmacist. Do not use for longer than 5 consecutive days.

Allow the lozenge to dissolve slowly in the mouth and do not swallow it whole.

As Tyrozets Lozenges contain a local anaesthetic, you should avoid eating or drinking whilst the anaesthesia (numbness) is at its greatest. This is to avoid any further irritation to the mouth lining.

Children aged 3 to 11 years:
  • Dissolve one lozenge slowly in the mouth every 3 hours.
  • Do not exceed 6 lozenges in any 24 hour period.
  • Leave at least 3 hours between doses.
Adults and children 12 years and over:
  • Dissolve one lozenge slowly in the mouth every 3 hours.
  • Do not exceed 8 lozenges in any 24 hour period.
  • Leave at least 3 hours between doses.
  • Active Ingredients: Tyrothricin 1mg and Benzocaine 5mg.
  • Other Ingredients: Acacia, magnesium stearate, maize starch, sodium chloride, sucrose, anethole, erythrosine (E127) and peppermint oil.
  • Use of antibiotics can sometimes allow the development of infections different from those they are intended to treat. If you think you are developing a new or different infection, stop taking this medicine and talk to your doctor.
  • Tyrozets Lozenges may cause methaemoglobinaemia, a rare but serious condition that must be treated promptly. Those most at risk are the elderly and patients with metabolic conditions such as glucose-6-phosphodiesterase deficiency, haemoglobin-M disease, NADH-methaemoglobin reductase (diaphorase 1) deficiency, and pyruvate-kinase deficiency. Talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse before using this medicine, if this applies to you.
  • If you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant or are breastfeeding ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
  • If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product. Each Tyrozets Lozenge contains 1g of sucrose. This should be taken into account in patients with diabetes mellitus. Excessive use may increase the risk of tooth decay.
Do not take Tyrozets Lozenges: 
  • If you have ever had a bad reaction to any of the ingredients.
