Can Tessalon Perles be used for a sore throat?

Tessalon Perles is meant to treat and suppress coughs, but its numbing properties may provide some relief from a sore throat. If your sore throat is caused by an infection, however, you should see your doctor because this medication will not treat the infection.

How does Tessalon Perles work?

Tessalon Perles uses benzonatate, a drug that numbs your throat and lungs to relax muscles that cause coughing fits. By anesthetizing these passageways, the medication reduces your cough reflex and suppresses your coughs.
