Whether from dental procedures, cancer treatment, autoimmune disorders or other causes – can be incredibly painful, and even keep patients from eating and drinking. And they’re notoriously hard to treat, as many water-soluble solutions have the tendency to wash away with saliva.
Premier Pharmacy has received numerous requests from prescribers for topical oral medications containing anti-infective medications coupled with corticosteroids or even antihistamines.
Patients who might benefit from these topical formulations could include patients who have:
- A localized infection in the oral cavity that needs to be treated,
- Are suffering side effects associated with chemotherapy and-or radiation treatments, or
- Prescribers desire to avoid systemically absorbed oral medications.
MucoLox’s one-of-a-kind polymer network provides improved moisturization, mucoadherence and superior film forming action, but won’t easily wash away, bonding to the mucosa to create a powerful but lightweight coating effect. When used with APIs, MucoLox’s advanced adhesive properties improve contact time of the API to the mucosa.
Ideal for the following formulations:
- Dental/oral rinse/mouthwash
- Oral moisturizer/protectant
- Esophageal preparations
- Swish/spit/swallow preparations
