COUGH DROPS / COUGH SUPPRESSANTS / THROAT LOZENGES
Cough drops, sore throat lozenges and cough suppressants are just some of the common household products known as the best medicine for sore throat and coughing. Stock up now on everything you need to keep your throat happy.
Coughs and colds can sometimes come separately, and, other times, come together, often as a sinus infection. It’s best not to treat just the cough while ignoring the cold, since coughing helps you clear excess mucus from your lungs, which is often caused by the cold.
However, treating a cold on its own is fine, as is taking cough-cold combination medicines.
There are two main categories of cough medicines;
Cough suppressants (aka antitussives) control your body from coughing by restraining the cough reflex. They are meant to be used to prevent dry, unnecessary and annoying coughs. Cough suppressants only suppress coughs; they don’t clear away mucus or heal throat pain. Popular over the counter cough suppressants include Mucinex Max Cold Relief and Delsym.
An expectorant helps treat coughs by thinning the mucus in the throat, and therefore making it easier to bring up the mucus when a person coughs. Expectorants don’t eradicate the cough altogether; they loosen up the mucus so that it’s easier to cough it up. When the mucus is easier to cough up, the person ends up coughing less.
Best Over the Counter Medicines for Sore Throat
There are plenty of over the counter medications for sore throat that can help you feel better without even having to visit the doctor. Just look around on AvaCare Medical from the comfort of your couch, and find the best over the counter meds available for healing your sore throat. Here are the best options for soothing your cough and/or sore throat.
1. Cough Drops / Throat Lozenges
Sore throat lozenges, also known as cough drops or cough lozenges, are small, often diamond-shaped flavored tablets that soothe a sore throat by lubricating it. They are not meant to be swallowed or chewed; sore throat lozenges are intended to dissolve on the tongue. As you suck on it, it helps your throat to feel better and less dry, and it begins to dissolve. Within about a half hour from when you first put it in your mouth, it should be fully dissolved.
Rather than calling them cough drops, some people actually refer to sore throat lozenges as sore throat candy or cough candy, since they are usually quite similar to sucking candies in both look and taste, and they often have a refreshing and tasteful flavor. The main difference between the two is that sore throat lozenges soothe the throat and can prevent excessive coughing.
