About Dentinox Infant Colic Drops

How do Dentinox Infant Colic Drops work?
Most babies will suffer from colic at some point. With bouts of crying and fretful, sleepless nights, it can be stressful for both child and family. Babies take in air as they feed and it is this build-up of air in the intestines that is thought to be one of the causes of colic. Dentinox Infant Colic Drops contain the active ingredient, activated dimethicone. This a type of medicine referred to as an 'anti-foaming agent'. It works by bringing together all small bubbles of air in the babies gut, to form larger bubbles that are easier to expel.

How do I administer Dentinox Infant Colic Drops?
Each pack of Dentinox Infant Colic Drops contains a handy syringe for easy dosing and administration. The drops can be given either directly to your child from the syringe or added to your baby's bottle. One 2.5ml dose with or after a feed will help relive the discomfort of trapped wind. Do not exceed more than 6 x 2.5ml doses in a 24-hr period.

Is it possible for a baby to overdose on Dentinox Infant Colic Drops?
The active ingredient, activated dimethicone, works locally in the gut, meaning that it is not absorbed into your baby's bloodstream. It is highly unlikely for a child to overdose on the treatment, however, if your child looks unwell after taking the medicine, you should always contact the doctor.

What do Dentinox Infant Colic Drops Contain?
The active ingredient is activated dimethicone 21mg per 2.5ml dose. Other ingredients include carbomer, sucrose, sodium hydroxide, E214, E216, E218, dill oil and water. Dentinox Infant Colic Drops do not contain gluten, lactose, aspartame and alcohol.

How do Dentinox Infant Colic Drops compare to other treatments for infant colic?
Dentinox Infant Colic drops work in a similar way to Infacol, our best-selling treatment for infant colic. Unfortunately, the cause of colic is unknown, so treatments like Dentinox Infant Colic Drops and Infacol will help where trapped wind is the root of the problem, but some parents may find that another treatment works better.
