Adcortyl In Orabase 5g (BEST for mouth ulcers!) only £2.93 + delivery @ chemist4U £5.88

ricairdricaird

If you experience bad mouth ulcers, you're probably already familiar with Adcortyl in Orabase - after all, it's what the doctors prescribe for them! On prescription this costs £7.10 in England. In Scotland you can get it in Boots over the counter for £5.90. Online, chemist-4-u sell this for £2.93 + £2.95 delivery - BUT if you order two or three, you only pay ONE delivery charge. I just bought three tubes for £11.29 inc. delivery.

This stuff is WAY better than the branded alternatives such as Bonjella. If you've not tried it, the trick is to apply it as soon as you feel the ulcer coming, and use it every night. It really is the best out there - try googling it if you're unfamiliar!

Remember, buy more tubes for a cheaper deal to save on postage!

    Thanks - I agree, it really is the best stuff out there for ulcers. Chemist-4-u are great too, I often get hayfever stuff from there in the summer. Cheapest out there usually, and often features on MSE. They usually bundle a few 'freebies' in too :)

    And because it's cheap too, surely!! Come on, £7.10 on prescription or £11.29 for THREE delivered? The more you buy, the cheaper it gets.

    Cheap deal, AND it works!:thumbsup:

    Sorry, but suggesting that people buy this in bulk is ridiculous.

    This is a medicine. It is a corticosteroid cream, albeit a weak one. It has only recently gone from being a "Prescription Only Medicine" to being one that can be sold under the direction of a Pharmacist. In fact the 10g size is still POM. This is to stop people overusing this product with the risk of thrush (fungal infection) or thinning of the gums and mouth lining. It is not recommended that you use this product for more than 5 days; most common mouth ulcers sort themselves out in a few days anyway. If the ulcers persist then you really should see a doctor.


    Thank you for the lecture, but I am responsible enough to read the leaflet inside - and have used this product since I was a child. Anyone that suffers mouth ulcers knows that they should clear up, and that medical advice should be sought if not. You're also wrong about the recent change to make this non-prescription - my family and I have bought this over the counter for many years, only recently however I have been unable to do so.

    As for the 'bulk buying' comment, that's hardly what I was endorsing. Quite simply, since there is only ONE postage charge, people may as well buy two or three to save money (which is of course what hukd is about). I bought three - one for me, and two for my family who also use this product. As you can see from the comments, most voters appear familiar with the product, and will probably do the same. But hey, thanks for the concern :whistling:

    I dont think it's ridiculous to bulk buy this product. The majority of people out there are more than capable of using all kinds of medicine, taking the correct dosage and seeking medical advice if the medicine doesn't seem to be helping.

    I used this site earlier in the year to buy antihistamines which I take for hives buying the same brand I was getting on perscription it cost me less than £15. This was a saving of £45 across the year as a perscription is £5 a go in Scotland.

    Agree, this stuff is foul but it works.

    and for those like me who fall prey to ulcers, especially when on holiday...the pain is a damn nuisance.

    Mumbojumbo you are correct in what you say but just not realistic. Nobody would ever use this unless they had an ulcer.

    and from the other side of the fence. 99% of healthy people who have lots of blood tests to try and find he cause of recurrent ulcers, nothing is found. There are a number of more serious conditions that could cause them but you would have other symptoms as well.

    Probably far more useful to discuss with your dentist, even then rarely is any cause found. Dentists also prescribe this.

    Some people are plagued by cold sores, others mouth ulcers. I always take it on holiday with me. It has a long shelf life, comes in 5gm and 10gm sizes.

    Your concerns are valid if someone was routinely using it everyday....not a chance!

    If you used this as a child then it would have been under the direction of a physician; usage of triamcinolone in children differs from that recommended for adults. You may find that a responsible pharmacist may decline bulk orders for this product any way; they are licensed to sell this to patients for use under their direction. They should not be selling this in bulk so that you can then go on to distribute it willy-nilly :p


    Seriously, get real will you?

    As a child, I was under the "direction" of my parents not a bloody physician! The leaflet with the product had directions for both adults and children, and they followed the guidance for children. Simply really.

    As I stated earlier, the ONLY person talking about 'bulk' orders is YOU - I ordered THREE not thirty! And yes, the pharmacists have now approved the order, and my THREE tubes are on their way - oh, and they're using standard royal mail, not parcel force! And yes, I WILL be giving a tube to my parents and a tube to my brother - hardly counts as 'willy nilly' really does it? Man, you sure know how to make a guy feel like a drug dealer :)

    Can you recommend any good chill pills or reality check potions... I think you need to try a few! Mumbojumbo...? You certainly talk it!
