Generic in home bargains £1.99
1.99 in savers i think
Look up the active ingredient- Chlorhexidine Gluconate. I clean this stuff off people's teeth every day. It stains with prolonged use.

If he pays tax he's as entitled to it as much as anyone else. If the NHS choose to provide it then so be it. I'm sure the government have wasted a lot more of our money on worse projects.

I used to get mouth ulcers repeatedly, multiple painful ones since my early teens up until I was around 40. I'm 45 now, I either outgrew them or it's the toothpaste I've used for the past 4 or 5 years.

I also stopped drinking orange juice too around the same time. Who knows what causes it, the doctors/scientists don't really know.

You would be surprised at the answer!
I also did a dissertation on Chlorhexidine!
It is available on prescription under the NHS.

Ah yes, the 'entitled' generation. Don't get me started (_;) I have no argument with him getting it on prescription if he has a medical need. My argument was with the implication, and suggestion, that getting your doctor to write a prescription was a good way to get 'free' stuff.

Scots do not pay. Welsh do not pay, why the English? The Rx charges are too high. I buy my Rx medicines from overseas. Antibiotics cost £1 and not over £8 on Rx. Perfectly lawful.

I insist on a doctor prescribing for children if he ever says buy over the counter, I remind him of his terms of service - if he sees a need he must prescribe.

I am happy to opt out if my taxes are reduced. I have had zero visits to the doctor and zero prescriptions in the last 5 years.

I also believe doctors should compensate patients if they run late by more than 15 minutes. If they want to charge us for missed appointments. It works both ways. It's arrogance to suggest doctor's time is worth more than mine.
I took my mother to hospital. All appointments were 1 hour late. So this wasted 8 hours of public time. Doctors do not want to discuss this. Why were not people sent a text.... running 1 hour late?
I received a text, a missed appointment costs £160!

I was advised to use it every one week in four as otherwise it will stain the teeth but its very good for gum health.

It might work for you, since the reason is unknown why some people get reoccurring ones and other people don't, I can only guess at why mine have stopped reoccurring.
Just paid 1.50 for it in Asda.

I considered importing my prescriptions but the shipping cost is quite high and for one offs like antibiotics the total cost is greater than the prescription charge. Do you only import chronic meds or do you have a stash of antibiotics?

​Surely you've been to your GP for clear High Blood Pressure!!



Hypotensive with pulse rate of 55. Must be heart block!

Do you only import chronic meds or do you have a stash of antibiotics?



Antibiotics only. Usually a stash of Amoxycillin. I cannot justify NHS costs. They have 3-5 years expiry. The expiry dates are often not based on any logic anyway. If I was chronically ill I would buy a pre-payment certificate.

Ah ok. For me personally I find I don't need antibiotics often enough to justify keeping a stash but for a chronic illness importing in bulk would be significantly cheaper than a PPC. But I am lazy so I just got a PPC...

Yeah, don't use it for more than 10 days as it'll discolour your teeth. Use Corsodyl Daily instead

From what I can see he only stated that it saves him a fortune, which to me only implies that he would normally have to buy it. Maybe he does have a medical condition as he said it's the dentist that prescribes it. As for the 'entitled generation' statement, I have no idea where you're going with that but if something is provided for taxpayers using taxpayers money and everyone can get it then yes I'd say he/I/you are just as entitled to receive it as anyone else. I'd definitely say someone who works and pays tax in the first place should be able to take advantage of it, as I'm sure plenty of non-taxpayers do. If your gripe was however just down to the fact that Scotland gets free prescriptions then maybe you should take it up with David Cameron.

Exactly what my periodontist said two weeks ago.I was advised to use Cordosyl Daily instead. Apparently with prolonged use this stuff forms a coating on your teeth which plaque can stick to.
I know because I had to go through a painful and expensive process called debridement to remove tartar and this stuff which I had been using regularly thinking it would control my gum disease. If you need to use Cordosyl for more than a couple of weeks then you really need to get to the root cause of the problem. Seek a second opinion from a good private dentist/periodontist if you need to. What may cost you a few hundred pounds now may save you a few thousand pounds later on.

You may have some serious underlying problem that needs attention such as gum disease

Where is the evidence that it discolours teeth?




When using our treatment mouthwashes, you should avoid drinking tea or coffee immediately after use. This is because they contain tannins which can react with the mouthwash and cause temporary discolouration of the tongue and teeth. Don't worry, this won't last. Tongue staining disappears after treatment stops and tooth discolouration is normally removed by daily brushing. If the tooth discolouration remains, this can be removed by a simple scale and polish by your dentist or hygienist.

To minimise staining replace:

Tea / coffee
Cola drinks

With:

Light coloured herbal / fruit tea
Lemonade / fruit juice

Avoid smoking especially soon after use and cut back as much as possible.

My dentist banned me from using this too, because of discolouration.

It says so on the packaging.
This stuff (the full strength version) can actually cause ulcers as well.

I was told to use it after the initial surgery for dental implants. And they did heal up nicely (and quickly). But I was starting to get ulcers (I never get ulcers) after a couple of weeks using it. The surgery doing the implants (a damn good surgery ... not my usual dentist) said that can happen.

Stopped the Corsodyl (I would have anyway, the implant posts were healed). Ulcers went away. Long term (on dentist advice) I use Listerine.

I get them if i eat Haribos! lol



I used to frequent this site > mouthulcers.org/ as I suffered so badly with mouthulcers. What that site tells you is anecdotal evidence, and no one really knows yet what causes mouth ulcers, I doubt there's one main cause for them. The fact I use that toothpaste I mentioned earlier could be a coincidence, or it might actually treat whatever the cause is of mouth ulcers for me. I know it's not gluten or stress that causes them. I'm more stressed than ever this days as I have a condition called GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder) which is a neat way for the Doctor to tell me they have no idea what the biological/environmental conditions are that cause my severe anxiety. So stress doesn't really play a part for me I think as I'm often severely stressed and don't have mouth ulcers anymore.

Good price but the generic can be bought cheaper at Home Bargains all year round. Poundshop also sells the generic (for a pound), albeit in a smaller bottle.

Also, I'm pretty sure you're only supposed to use it once or twice a week. Also, hydrogen peroxide is cheaper and better IMO
