This is a review of Cepastat’s Extra Strength Lozenges. The manufacturer states this lozenge provides fast-acting relief resulting from a sore throat or other conditions such as mouth irritation and canker sores. They also state that this is a sugar-free lozenge that contains phenol for an oral anesthetic. Please keep reading this review to see if this product will help you with your sore throat.


These are the ingredients for Cepastat’s Extra Strength Lozenge:

  • 29 mg Phenol which acts as an oral anesthetic to provide pain relief
  • Antifoam Emulsion
  • Caramel Color
  • Eucalyptus Oil
  • Gum Crystal
  • Menthol
  • Sorbitol
  • Titanium Dioxide


The dosage of this product depends on how old you are. Adults and children 12 years or older can take up to 2 lozenges every 2 hours as needed. Children that are between 6 to 12 years old take up to 1 lozenge every 2 hours, they should not exceed 10 lozenges within 24 hours. For children under 6 years old, you should first consult with a doctor.

Possible Side Effects

You should not use this product for more than 7 days or if the pain, irritation, or redness continues or gets worse. Stop using it if the soreness is severe and is accompanied by a fever, headache, rash, nausea, or vomiting and contact your doctor. Women who are pregnant or nursing should also speak with their doctor before using this product.


I could not find the company’s website so prices may vary depending on which vendor you purchase it from. A single box currently retails for $4.87 but if you purchase these lozenges in bulk, you will purchase this at a discount price. A pack of 6 (with 18 lozenges) will cost you $22.85 which would save you almost $8.00.


I could not find a manufacturer’s guarantee. This means that you are at the mercy of the seller’s return policy. It is best to find a reputable seller with a return policy that will either reimburse you fully or at least give you store credit for an opened item.

Customer reviews for this product are overall positive. Many customers appreciate the fact that the lozenges are sugar-free and while they relieve the pain they do not fully numb the mouth or throat like its competitors. Their only complaint is that this product is not as easy to find in local pharmacies or drugstores.


Cepastat’s Extra Strength Lozenges seems to be an ideal product for people who are suffering from a sore throat, pain from canker sores, or minor mouth irritations. Not only are the reviews positive, the fact that it is sugar-free means this lozenge will not harm your teeth while it soothes oral irritations.

While this product may seem great, there is no manufacturer’s guarantee. If you decided to purchase this product, you will need to purchase from a seller with a return policy. Another downside is the lack of availability in stores and websites. It seems you will have to search the internet to find this product. Also, it seems this product is more often sold in bulk rather than by box, which makes it difficult for potential consumers who initially just want to try the product.
