Product features

Trochisch, also known as a pastille, is a type of sweet or medicinal pill made of a thick liquid that has been solidified. This can be consumed by light chewing and allowing it to dissolve in the mouth.  It has anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects and is useful for alleviating symptoms when catching a cold.  

By slowly dissolving in the oral cavity, the dissolved components spread in the oral cavity and throat. Even with the same oral tablet, unlike buccal tablets, * ¹ and sublingual tablets * ² that act systemically, Trochisch is effective only in limited areas.

* ¹ Buccal agent: A drug that is used by sandwiching the drug between the gums and cheeks and slowly dissolving it.

* ² Sublingual tablet: A drug that is placed under the tongue and dissolved. It is very fast until the effect is exhibited.
