Tantum Oral rinse


Overview

Introduction

Tantum Oral rinse is a pain relieving medicine. It is used to relieve pain, discomfort, and inflammation of the mouth, gums, and throat. It provides relief from pain and swelling and aids in speeding up the healing process.

Tantum Oral rinse 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 medicine or apply it more often than prescribed by your doctor. This will not make it work any faster and may increase side effects.

It is usually safe with little or no side effects. However, it may cause burning sensation and skin irritation at the site of application in some people. 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 symptoms.

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.
