Thanks for your query.

Navidoxine (Meclizine) can cause decreased secretions from the salivary glands and make the throat mucosa prone for infections.Yes, it can cause sore throat but for that you may have to be on medication of long.

A 2 day dosage cannot produce such a side effect.Only some preservatives coated around the medications which could cause irritation and sore throat.This may not last longer and disappears within a day or two.

Do gargle with antispetic solution like CHLORHEXIDINE this will reduce or prevent the infection in the throat and provide you considerable relief.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
