A lozenge is a solid preparation meant to slowly dissolve in the mouth. Most of them consist of one or more medicines and a flavored, sweetened base. Most commonly, lozenges are used for localized effects in the mouth. In addition to intramuscular application, the drugs can be absorbed via the buccal lining or swallowed for systemic effect. Traditionally, this dosage form has been used with drugs like phenol, sodium phenolate, benzocaine, and cetylpyridinium chloride. Modern drugs include analgesics, anesthetics, antiseptics, antimicrobials, antitussives, antinausics, and decongestants.
