Throat Spray is and what it is
used for

3. How to use Ultra Chloraseptic®
Throat Spray

Honey & Lemon Flavour Ultra Chloraseptic® Anaesthetic
Throat Spray 0.71% w/v Oromucosal Spray is used
to relieve sore throat pain and will be referred to as
Ultra Chloraseptic® Throat Spray throughout this leaflet.
The product contains the active ingredient
benzocaine which belongs to the group of medicines
called local anaesthetics. It has a fast action and
works by numbing the pain of a sore throat. The
product comes in the form of a spray. It has a swivel
head applicator to help deliver the local anaesthetic
direct to the throat.

Ultra Chloraseptic® Throat Spray is for use by adults
and teenagers, and in children aged from 6 years
when supervised by an adult.
The product is designed so that the medication can
be sprayed directly to the back of the throat.
The following instructions will help you to
get the best results from your spray:
• Remove the cap from the bottle, and rotate the
spray head around by half a circle so that the
nozzle extends beyond the bottle
(see diagram below).

2. Before you use Ultra Chloraseptic®
Throat Spray
DO NOT use this spray if
• you have difficulty in breathing, noisy breathing or
severe difficulty in swallowing. Talk to your
pharmacist or doctor if this applies to you
• you know you are allergic to benzocaine or any of
the other ingredients (see Section 6, Further
Information)
• you have been told that you have a rare blood
condition called methaemoglobinaemia
• you are pregnant or breast-feeding
DO NOT use this medicine for children under 6
years of age.
This medicine contains a small quantity of alcohol
(less than 0.006 units per spray) to dissolve the other
ingredients. Contains propylene glycol - this may
cause skin irritation.
If your sore throat is severe or prolonged, or
accompanied by fever, headache, or feeling sick,
consult a doctor.

Nozzle in stored position Nozzle ready for use

• If this is a new bottle, or you have not used it
since your last sore throat, activate the pump
by spraying 3 times away from your face
into a sink. This will also help you to get a feel
for the pump action.
• Hold the bottle in your hand with your index
(first) finger on the pump, ready to spray.
• When you are ready, open the mouth a little and
point the spray nozzle towards the back of
your throat. The nozzle should be just inside your
mouth (see diagram below). This will help the spray
get to its target at the back of the throat.

product is working. Avoid eating or drinking as long
as the numbness lasts.
If you spray more than you should, and you feel
drowsy, you must contact a doctor immediately.

4. Possible side effects
Allergic reactions have been reported occasionally
with benzocaine. Although very unlikely, if your
breathing is affected after using the spray, or if your
