Pharmaceutical form: Neutrasal® is a powder containing 538 mg of ingredients in a foil sachet intended to be dissolved or dispersed in water (tap water, distilled or purified water) before administration to form a solution supersaturated with respect to both calcium and phosphate ions.
Actions: Neutrasal®, when dissolved or dispersed in water before use, forms an electrolyte solution resembling human saliva, designed in part to replace the normal ionic and pH balance in the oral cavity. It is intended as a mouth rinse to moisten, lubricate and clean the oral cavity including the mucosa of the mouth, tongue and throat. Neutrasal® facilitates chewing and speaking; loosens tough mucus and prevents mucous membranes from sticking together.
Indications for use: Neutrasal® is indicated for dryness of the mouth or throat (hyposalivation, xerostomia); regardless of the cause and regardless of whether the conditions are temporary or permanent. Neutrasal® is also indicated as an adjunct to standard oral care in treating the mucositis that may be caused by radiation or high dose chemotherapy. Relief of dryness of the oral mucosa in these conditions is associated with an amelioration of pain.
