PLOS ONE. 2016;11(2):e0147860. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0147860 Covonia is a particularly great lozenge brand if you’re looking for a great option not only to help you with a sore throat but also to help clear congestion at the same time. It has a distinctive warming flavour and helps to clear your airways, soothing your mouth and throat. The double action lozenges come in a standard variation, a 30g variation, or a sugar-free variation too: Some people love the sweet taste and calming effects of cough drops and may want to take them even when they don’t have a cough. But eating more than the recommended amount of cough drops — or anything for that matter — can result in a few unwanted symptoms. How many cough drops is too many? While most throat infections normally get better by themselves, there are some home remedies and medicines for sore throats in children and babies to help comfort, soothe and relieve your little one.
Chloralieve lozenges contain two types of antiseptics and Lidocaine Hydrochloride, a local anaesthetic for the throat that provides targeted relief for the symptoms of a sore throat. Chloralieve lozenges are suitable for sore throat relief in adults and children over the age of 12 years old.

If you manage to eat a very large amount of cough drops, you might experience the following symptoms: Chen J, Brady P. Gastroesophageal reflux disease: pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Gastroenterology Nursing. 2019;42(1):20-28. doi:10.1097/SGA.0000000000000359
Keep in mind that you can call the Poison Help Line even if you just have questions about poison prevention. It doesn’t have to be an emergency.
Keep in mind that cough drops also contain a fair amount of sugar. Eating an excessive amount of cough drops on a regular basis may also lead to weight gain over time. To put it in perspective, a typical cough drop contains between 5 and 10 mg of menthol. There’s no accepted standard for a menthol overdose, but research suggests anywhere between 50 mg/kg and 1,000 mg/kg could cause a lethal overdose. This suggested range is based on the weight of the individual, so the amount of menthol it takes to cause an overdose in one person is different from what it would take in another. For example, if an individual weighed 175 pounds (79.5 kg), anywhere from 3,975mg to 79,500mg could cause a menthol overdose. This would mean ingesting 397 to 7,950 drops containing 10 mg of menthol each. It’s possible to overdose on cough drops containing menthol, but it’s incredibly difficult. Most people with menthol poisoning get it from ingesting pure menthol. Over-the-counter cough drops don’t contain pure menthol. The menthol is usually diluted. If you’re taking cough drops for a sore throat or cough and your symptoms don’t improve within 7 days or get worse, see a healthcare professional.
