This stuff is incredible. I should know; I get a sore throat at least once every few weeks. (Something to do with a diet consisting mainly of PayDay Bars and Jolt Cola, coupled with a generally weak immune system.) My first reaction was to think that it was rather bitter and not very potent, but then I read the directions and learned that it should be sprayed 5 times, not once. So I sprayed it five times and realized that it was extremely bitter, and also that the pain was completely gone, and did not return until the sickness was long healed.
