Sore Throat

I started getting a sore throat yesterday. Thinking its just from my sinuses draining but the pain kept me up most of the night. Ive taken acetaminophen and it helps some but I'm wondering is I can suck on cough drops or use the numbing throat spray. I can't find my list of approved medicines and being the weekend its hard to get ahold of Dr. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure cough drops are fine. If you're worried I would say avoid the menthol ones. The throat spray is on my list of safe meds. Also, honey works great to sooth a sore throat; get some caffeine free hot tea, load it up with honey, and your throat will feel better instantly!

Thanks. I'll try the tea and honey first.
