Reporting of suspected adverse reactions
Reporting suspected adverse reactions after authorisation of the medicinal product is important. It allows continued monitoring of the benefit/risk balance of the medicinal product. Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions via the Yellow Card Scheme at www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard or search for MHRA Yellow Card in the Google Play or Apple App Store.
Overdosage would not be expected to cause any problems and treatment would be merely symptomatic and supportive.
Glycerin and sucrose have demulcent properties and will soothe irritated sore throats and possibly block sensory cough receptors within the respiratory tract.
Glycerin is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and undergoes extensive metabolism principally in the liver. It may be used in the synthesis of lipids, and is metabolised to glucose or glycogen or oxidised to carbon dioxide and water. It may also be excreted in the urine unchanged.
Sucrose is hydrolysed in the small intestine by the enzyme sucrase to glucose and fructose which are then absorbed.
There are no preclinical data of relevance to the prescriber which are additional to that already included.
