One benefit of Lemocin is that it is easy to take. You simply place the lozenge on your tongue and suck on it. This means that it can be taken by a wide variety of people, including anyone who may have difficulty swallowing a tablet or pill. The effects of each lozenge last for up to three hours, reducing the need to continually take medication. In more severe cases, Lemocin can be taken more frequently – up to once every hour.

Effects

Lemocin is made up of three active ingredients – tyrothricin, cetrimonium and lidociane. Tyrothricin is an anti-bacterial agent – it helps to kill bacteria in the mouth and throat that can cause pain. It is not absorbed into the body, and remains as a coating on the surface of the mouth and throat, increasing its effects. Cetrimonium is a disinfectant that also helps destroy bacteria. Lidocaine is an anaesthetic that helps to reduce pain, such as the pain of swallowing which can accompany infections.
