Overview

INTRODUCTION

Rexidin-M Forte Gel is a combination medicine used in the treatment of mouth ulcers. It promotes the healing of mouth ulcers by forming a protective coating over the mouth sores. It also blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain to decrease the sensation of pain.

Rexidin-M Forte Gel should be used strictly as advised by your doctor. Use it in the dose and duration as directed by your doctor. You should not use more quantity or more often than prescribed by your doctor. This will not make it work any faster rather increase the chance of side effects.

Using of this medicine may cause some common side effects such as application site reactions (burning, irritation, itching, and redness), dryness in mouth, metallic taste, nausea, and staining of teeth. These are usually temporary and resolve with time. If they do not get better with time or worsen, you should let your doctor know. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing the side effects.

Before using the medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are using or have recently used any other medicines for the same condition or other diseases. To make sure the medicine is safe, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using the medicine.

HOW TO COPE WITH SIDE EFFECTS?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Dryness
    Use mild cleansing creams or soaps rather than harsh or perfumed ones. Use warm water (not hot) and do not spend too long in the bath or shower. Long bathing hours or using harsh soaps can wash away natural oils. Dry your skin gently with a towel and apply moisturizer immediately after washing. Do not use alcohol-based products on your skin. Choose clothing fabrics that will not irritate your skin.
  • Coping with Metallic taste
    Keep your mouth clean. Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with saltwater or mouthwash after each snack or meal. Use plastic or glass utensils if the food tastes like metal. Avoid very hot or very cold foods. Chewing mints or gums may also help in improving the taste. Increase your fluid intake and choose foods that have strong flavors. Try adding garlic, lemon juice, herbs, spices and pickles or chutneys. Avoid cigarette smoking.
  • Coping with Nausea
    You can help yourself by eating small, frequent meals rather than large ones and drinking plenty of fluids. Eat slowly. Avoid fatty, fried, spicy and very sweet foods. Eat cold or slightly warm food if the smell of cooked or cooking food makes you feel sick. Get plenty of fresh air. You could also try chewing ginger or drinking ginger tea. Eat bananas to replace potassium in your blood which can drop if you are sick (vomit). Use oral rehydration salts to replace vitamins and minerals lost through being sick. There are some medicines that can help you stop from feeling sick. Speak to your doctor if your condition does not improve.

HOW REXIDIN-M DENTAL GEL WORKS

Rexidin-M Forte Gel is a combination of three medicines: Lidocaine/Lignocaine, Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Metronidazole, which treats mouth sores. Lidocaine/Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which forms a protective coating over the mouth sores and blocks pain signals to further relieve pain. Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antiseptic and disinfectant which effectively cleans out the ulcer surface to prevent infection. Metronidazole is an antibiotic which kills the bacteria and other microorganisms by damaging their DNA.
