Strefen Honey & Lemon Lozenges

Strefen Honey and Lemon Lozenges provide an anti-inflammatory action for fast, long lasting relief from painful sore throats in adults and children aged 12 years and older. They contain the active ingredient flurbiprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that provides relief by changing the body's response to pain, swelling and high temperature.

Strefen Honey and Lemon Lozenges are for short-term use only. You should take as few lozenges as you need for the shortest time necessary to relieve your symptoms.

Adults, the elderly and children aged 12 years and over:
  • Take one lozenge by mouth and suck slowly.
  • Always move the lozenge around whilst sucking.
  • The lozenge should start to work within 30 minutes.
  • Then take one lozenge every 3-6 hours if needed.
  • Do not take more than 5 lozenges in a 24 hour period.
  • Do not take for longer than 3 days unless your doctor tells you to.
  • If symptoms persist or the pain worsens, or if any new symptoms occur, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Other Ingredients: Macrogol 300, Potassium Hydroxide, Lemon Flavour, Levomenthol, Liquid Sucrose, Liquid Glucose and Honey.
