So, while bored waiting for the man flu to go away I've been reading the instructions on these Strepsils Extra. They claim that the dose is one "every three hours as required" but goes on to say "Do not take more than 12 lozenges in any 24 hour period". Huh?
And as Simon Hoggart pointed out in Saturday's Guardian it doesn't stop there. One of his correspondents is taking Strepsils too. Hoggart writes:
I loved Ann Robinson's Strepsils pack which advises you to "consult your doctor or pharmacist if anything unusual happens".
What, like flying saucers landing at Tesco, or Bob from HR finally buying a round?
Yeah, that would do it.
