  • General Sales List Medicine
(incl VAT)

Corsodyl Alcohol Free Mouthwash.

Corsodyl Alcohol Free Mouthwash is a mint flavoured medicated mouthwash for the treatment of gum problems.

The active ingredient in Corsodyl Alcohol Free Mouthwash is chlorhexidine digluconate, an antibacterial agent that reduces the formation of dental plaque and is used to treat and prevent gum disease (where gums may bleed when brushed), promote gum healing after dental surgery or treatment, control mouth ulcers, maintain oral hygiene, manage oral thrush and treat soreness caused by dentures.

Check before you use

Do not use:
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to chlorhexidine digluconate or any of the other ingredients
  • In children under 12 years unless recommended by a dentist
  • Anywhere other than in your mouth. Wash thoroughly if you get any in your eyes or ears
  • Immediately after brushing your teeth. See 'How to use' for more information
Take special care with Corsodyl:
  • Do not bleach fabrics that have been in contact with the mouthwash.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding:
  • You can use the Corsodyl Alcohol free Mouthwash if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

How to Use

Use only if seal on cap is present and intact before opening.
  • Do not swallow.
  • Do not exceed the stated dose.
  • Toothpastes can stop Corsodyl Mouthwash working. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 5 minutes after brushing your teeth before using the mouthwash. You can also use the mouthwash at a different time of day.
  • Use twice a day. Fill the cap to the 10ml line. Rinse mouth thoroughly for one minute then spit out.
  • Gum disease: A one month course (600ml) is recommended.
  • Mouth ulcers and oral thrush: Continue to use for 2 days after healing has occurred.
  • Denture sore mouth: Clean and soak your dentures in the mouthwash for 15 minutes twice a day.
  • Dental surgery: Rinse as directed by your dentist.
  • If your symptoms persist, see your dentist.

Possible Side Effects

Corsodyl Alcohol Free Mouthwash can have side effects, but not everybody gets them.
  • Stop using the mouthwash and seek immediate medical help if you get a rash, swelling of the mouth or face or have difficulty breathing. These effects may be symptoms of a severe allergic reaction which is very rare.
  • Stop using the mouthwash and tell your dentist if you get irritation of the mouth, soreness, or swelling of the inside of the cheeks. These effects should go away when treatment is stopped.
Other side effects that may occur:
  • Temporary staining of the tongue. This disappears when treatment is stopped.
  • Temporary staining of the teeth. This can normally be removed by brushing. You can avoid staining by not drinking tea, coffee or red wine - especially one hour after use and by brushing daily with toothpaste. If staining continues, it can be removed with a scale and polish from your dentist or hygienist. You can clean your dentures with denture cleaner.
  • You may notice a change of taste or burning sensation when you first use the mouthwash. This usually goes away with continued use.
  • If peeling of the skin inside the mouth occurs, dilute the mouthwash with an equal amount of water.
If you do get any side effects, even those not mentioned above, tell your doctor, dentist or pharmacist.
