For a full list of excipients, see section 6.1

[…]

management of superficial infections of the oropharynx and in their

Not recommended

 

Method of administration

4.3 Contraindications

Oraldene is contraindicated in patients known to be hypersensitive to

Hexetidine or related compounds.

Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients

listed in section 6.1.

4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use

Oraldene should not be taken internally.

Oraldene is for external use only; the solution must therefore not be

swallowed.

This medicinal product contains 5vol % Ethanol (alcohol), i

 

.e.: up to

 

0.611

 

mg g per dose, equivalent to 15.48ml beer, 6.45ml wine per dose.

 

Harmful for those suffering from alcoholism. To be taken into account

such as patients with liver disease, or epilepsy.

None known

 


4.7 Effects on ability to drive and operate machinery

None known

 

 

Oraldene has no or negligible influence on the

 

ability to drive and use machines.


4.9 Overdosage

Symptoms

Hexetidine is a bactericide and fungicide.

No adverse events have been reported in overdose other than those seen

in normal use. There are no reports of alcoholic intoxication from

overdose with hexetidine.

Hexetidine, at the strength present in hexetidine products is non-toxic.

Acute alcoholic intoxication is extremely unlikely; however it is

theoretically possible that, if a massive dose were swallowed by a small

child, alcoholic intoxication may occur due to the ethanol content.

There is no evidence to suggest that repeated, excessive administration

of hexetidine would lead to hypersensitivity-type reactions.

Management

Treatment of overdose is symptomatic, but rarely required. In the event

of accidental ingestion of the contents of a bottle by a child, a doctor

should be consulted immediately. Gastric lavage should be considered

within two hours of ingestion and management should relate to

treatment of alcoholic intoxication.


5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Antiinfectives and antiseptics for local oral

treatment, ATC code: A01AB12.

 

 

None known

 



5.2 Pharmacokinetic
