There are many medicines to heal a cough, one of them is cough lollies, a small, medicated candy intended to be dissolved slowly in the mouth to lubricate and soothe irritated tissues of the throat. Cough lollies are at long last available in sugar free varieties. The simple act of sucking something and it running down your throat is how they work, so suck, don't chew! (I do, so then l think why did l put them in my mouth?)

Non-menthol cough lollies generally use either zinc gluconate glycine or pectin as an oral demulcent. Several brands of cough lollies contain dextromethorphan.
