- Clinical Pharmacology
Indications and Usage
As a supplemental source of Fluoride. It has been established that ingestion of fluoridated drinking water (1 ppm F) during the period of tooth development results in significant decrease in the incidence of dental caries.1 Sodium Fluoride Drops were developed to provide systemic Fluoride for use as a supplement
in pediatric patients from 6 months to age 3 and older, living in areas where the drinking water Fluoride level does not exceed 0.6 ppm F.
Prolonged daily ingestion of quantities greater than the recommended amount may result in various degrees of dental fluorosis in pediatric patients under age 6 years, especially if the water fluoridation exceeds 0.6 ppm. Read directions carefully before using. Keep out of the reach of infants and children.
See " Overdosage" section. Incompatibility of Fluoride with dairy foods has been reported due to formation of Calcium Fluoride which is poorly absorbed. Not for use in the eyes.
- Adverse Reactions
Prolonged daily ingestion of excessive Fluoride may result in varying degrees of dental fluorosis. The total amount of Sodium Fluoride in a bottle of 50 mL (0.5 mg/mL) Sodium Fluoride Drops (25 mg F) conforms with the recommendations of the American Dental Association for the maximum to be dispensed at one time for safety purposes. If overdose is suspected, call 1-800-222-1222 (American Association of Poison Control Centers), your local poison control center (www.aapcc.org), or emergency room immediately for treatment recommendations.
Dosages and Administration
