What Peroxyl is used for: Peroxyl is a medicated mouthwash used
to relieve minor mouth and gum irritations by killing germs and/or
preventing them from spreading and causing infection. When
Peroxyl® comes into contact with mouth tissue, oxygen is released
in a bubbling action providing mechanical cleansing to flush out
mouth debris and help in the relief of oral irritations.

Special warnings: Do not use in children under the age of 6 years.
DO NOT SWALLOW. Avoid contact with eyes. Pregnancy/BreastFeeding: Consult your doctor or dentist before use. Peroxyl®
contains levo-menthol, which if accidentally ingested in excessive
amounts may cause fits (particularly in children or infants). If you,
or anybody else using Peroxyl® experience fits, seek medical help,
always take this container with you.
Directions for use: Always use Peroxyl® exactly as your dentist or
pharmacist has told you. You should check with your dentist or
pharmacist if you are not sure. You should not use Peroxyl® at high
doses or for a long time.
The duration of the treatment should not exceed 7 days.
Adults and children over 12 years: rinse with 10 ml (one capful,
10 ml line within cap) of Peroxyl® for 1 minute, then spit out. Use 3
times daily, after meals and at bedtime, or as directed by your
dentist or pharmacist.
Children age 6-12 years: As above but under the supervision of an adult.

How to Store Peroxyl®: Keep out of the reach and sight of children, do
not store above 25°C, do not use Peroxyl® after the expiry date which refers
to the last day of that month or if you notice any signs of deterioration.

Before you use Peroxyl: Do not use Peroxyl® if you are allergic
(hypersensitive) to hydrogen peroxide or any of the other ingredients
of Peroxyl®. You should speak to your dentist or doctor if you have
a mouth irritation that persists beyond 7 days of treatment or is
severe, if you have irritation due to the wearing of braces and/or
dentures, if you develop swelling in the mouth or develop a fever.

Possible side effects: Like all medicines, Peroxyl® can cause side
effects, although not everybody gets them, these may include:
minor irritation and swelling of the mouth, injury to the gums, black
stain on the tongue and a feeling that your tongue is hairy. You are
more likely to experience these side effects if you use Peroxyl® for a
long time or at high doses. These side effects should disappear
when you stop using Peroxyl®. If you experience any untoward
problems please tell your dentist or pharmacist.
