Possible Side Effects
Corsodyl Alcohol Free Mouthwash can have side effects, but not everybody gets them.
Other side effects that may occur:
- 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.
If you do get any side effects, even those not mentioned above, tell your doctor, dentist or pharmacist.
- 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.
