    Hi all,

    hope you are all haivng a great day!

    I have had a sore throat for a couple of days now, and felt a bit icky earlier.

    is there any sugar free throat sweets that i can have on the 810 plan?

    I would gargle with dispersible aspirin but i take 2x 800mg ibuprophen every day so cant add aspirin to it.

    i was naughty last night and had a lemsip. i figured even if it knocked ketones out i would sleep through it, did wake up feeling hungy but porridge sorted that out.

    anyone suggest anything i can have?

    thanks in advance

    Helen xx

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Cambridge don't approve any cough/throat sweets. They suggest orange water flavouring hot and then taking a couple of paracetamol.

    Think you have to decide how bad you are - and if you are really bad then I'd take something to make me better .... if not too bad stick with paracetamol/nurafen and maybe vicks rubbed on your chest at night as a decongestant.

    thanks beverley. i did see some strepsils sugar free, so i got some, they are strawb flavour and not that nice tbh, but they numb my throat a bit.

    I would normally try and live with it, but its got worse - so i made sure they were sugar free and had no citric acid in. there is a little maltose syrup listed near the end of the ingredients, so i wouldn't call them safe of reccommend them to anyone, unless they really really need it and cant take aspirin.

    it'll pass soon enough.
