Strepsils honey and lemon lozenges are not expected to be harmful if used during pregnancy. However, as their safety has not been fully studied, and as with all medicines, you should get advice from your gynaecologist

Hi, Strepsils in moderation should be fine. But if still needed, you ca always consult your gynae for the medication. Keep sipping lukewarm water and ginger tea as that will comfort your throat

Is better to consult your gynaecologist. Perhaps you may want to gargle salt water or have some manuka honey see whether it helps.

Yes but be sure to eat in moderation. If you’re worried, just go doc, tell them you’re pregnant and ask for lozenges. Drink plenty of water as well.
