Chlorhexidine has antiseptic and disinfectant properties. Pharmacokinetic properties: Benzydamine: When administered as a local application, benzydamine has a low systemic absorption which reduces the potential of systemic side effects. Metabolism is mainly through oxidation, dealkylation and conjugation. Chlorhexidine: Minimal systemic absorption is observed. Chlorhexidine is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and skin. Indications: For the relief of minor infections and painful inflammatory conditions of the mouth and throat. Chlorhexidine in Oranix helps to reduce the development of plaque. Identification: A clear, pinkish red liquid with an odour of peppermint/aniseed.

How to use
Dosage and directions for use: 5 to 10 sprays directly onto the painful or inflamed area and swallow gently. Repeat every 1 1/2 to 3 hours as necessary. Dosage and directions for use: Adults: Gargle: Gargle with 15 ml (approximately one tablespoon) for at least 30 seconds at 1 1/2 to 3 hourly intervals, as needed. The solution should be expelled from the mouth after use and not swallowed. Rinse for oral lesions: 15 ml (approximately one tablespoon) which should be held in the mouth and swirled around for at least 30 seconds, with repeat use every 1 1/2 to 3 hours throughout the day, as needed. The solution should be expelled from the mouth after use. Spray: 5 to 10 sprays directly onto the painful or inflamed area and swallow gently. Repeat every 1 1/2 to 3 hours as necessary. Oranix should generally be used undiluted, but if stinging occurs, the rinse may be diluted with water. Children (6 years and older): Use 5 to 15 ml as a gargle if able to do so, or as an oral rinse, every 3 hours. Avoid contact with the eyes. How to clean and care for Oranix spray: Rinse the actuator spindle and nozzle after every use to avoid sporadic blockages of the spray tube. Rinse the spray tube in warm, running water for at least 30 seconds and let the water run through the spray tube. This is very important as sometimes the small opening where the medicine comes out can become blocked. Shake off the excess water and leave the spray tube to dry completely. Note: blockage from medication build-up is more likely to occur if the spray tube is not allowed to dry thoroughly. The spray should be store in an upright position.
