    What is Benzydamine used for?

    Benzydamine is a topical analgesic (oral rinse/gel) used to relieve painful mouth and throat conditions such as mouth ulcers, sore gums and sore throat. Benzydamine is also used to treat pain and inflammation following dental surgery. Benzydamine is indicated as well for relief from pain and inflammatory conditions associated with sore throat or mouth sores caused by radiation therapy.

    Benzydamine belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This drug helps stop pain by blocking the formation of certain chemicals called prostaglandins in the body.

    Benzydamine may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.

    What is the recommended dosage of Benzydamine?

    The dosage of Benzydamine prescribed to each patient will vary. Always follow your physician’s instructions and/or the directions on the prescription drug label.

    Do not swallow Benzydamine oral rinse or gel. The prescribed amount of Benzydamine should be used as a mouth wash around the mouth or as a gargle in the throat, for at least 30 seconds, and then it should be spit out.

    What if you miss a dose of Benzydamine?

    If your physician has instructed or directed you to use Benzydamine medication in a regular schedule and you have missed a dose of this medicine, use it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, then skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double the doses to catch up for the missed dose.

    What if you overdose on Benzydamine?

    Any medication used in excess can have serious consequences. If you suspect an overdose of Benzydamine, seek medical attention immediately.

    What other drugs could interact with Benzydamine?

    There are no known interactions between Benzydamine oral rinse/gel and other medicines. However, it is important to inform your doctor about the use of any other medications including non-prescription medications (over-the-counter medicines that may increase the effect of Benzydamine) and dietary supplements like vitamins, minerals and herbal, so that the doctor can warn you of any possible drug interactions.

    Do let your doctor know if you smoke, consume alcohol or caffeinated drinks, or use illegal drugs as these may interfere with the action of your medication. Make sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions you may have, or any family history of medical problems. Do not start or stop using any medicine without consulting your doctor.

    What are the side effects of Benzydamine?

    Like other medicines, Benzydamine can cause some side effects. If they do occur, the side effects of Benzydamine are most likely to be minor and temporary. However, some may be serious and may require the individual to inform the doctor or visit the nearest hospital immediately.

    It is pertinent to note that side effects of Benzydamine cannot be anticipated. If any side effects of Benzydamine develop or change in intensity, the doctor should be informed as soon as possible.

    Benzydamine may cause side effects such as numbness, burning or stinging in your mouth or throat. This is not a complete list of all side effects. Do concur with your doctor and follow his directions completely when you are using Benzydamine.
