Oral menthol is a cough suppressant and a local anaesthetic. It provides temporary relief for symptoms like sore throat, throat irritation, or cough, often associated with a cold. It works by creating a cooling sensation and stimulating saliva production.

Uses and Dosage

Let the lozenge dissolve slowly in your mouth, swallowing the dissolved liquid along with your saliva. Do not chew or swallow it whole.

Typically, this product is used every 2 hours as needed. If your doctor has given specific instructions, follow them carefully. Do not increase the dose or use the product more frequently or for longer than recommended.
