Strepfen lozenges are a breakthrough in the treatment of painful and swollen sore throats. The anti-inflammatory ingredient in Strepfen, flurbiprofen, works by reducing the painful swelling and tenderness that can make swallowing so difficult. Each box of Strepfen contains 16 lozenges each providing constant relief for up to 3 hours.
Adults - Dissolve 1 lozenge slowly in the mouth every 3 to 6 hours as needed.
Children over 12 years of age - Dissolve 1 lozenge slowly in the mouth every 3 to 6 hours as needed.
Strepfen is not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
