Sorexidine can be used as an adjunct to antibiotic treatment. There is no available report on any drug interaction with maintenance medication like antibiotics.

One of the known side effects of Chlorhexidine is tooth staining, but this is temporary. However, this is not a deterrent to using Chlorhexidine. The benefits of preventing oral plaques, dental caries, and oral malodor as well as preventing gingivitis or periodontitis outweigh tooth staining.

One theory on staining explains that Chlorhexidine interacts with sugars and amino acids in the oral cavity, leading to a non-enzymatic browning reaction. The good news is, the staining is extrinsic and can easily be removed through regular oral hygiene (toothbrushing).

Sorexidine is available in two sizes: 60 mL, which retails at Php 98.50, and 120 mL at Php170.00.
