Sodium Fluoride Frequently Asked Questions

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor/dentist, usually once daily.

The dosage is based on your age and the fluoride content in your water supply.

If you are using the liquid form of this medication, measure the dose carefully using the specially marked medicine dropper that is provided. Drops may be swallowed directly, added to a small amount of juice, or mixed with a small amount of food such as applesauce. Do not mix with food containing milk or other dairy products.

If you are using the chewable form of this medication, chew or dissolve it in the mouth before swallowing so that the teeth will also absorb the fluoride. If you are using the lozenge, place the lozenge in your mouth and allow it to dissolve. Take the chewable medication or lozenge at bedtime after brushing your teeth or as directed by your doctor/dentist. For best results, do not rinse your mouth, eat, or drink for 30 minutes after taking these forms of the medication.

Take this medication 1 hour apart from products that contain calcium, aluminum, or magnesium. Some examples include dairy products (such as milk, yogurt), antacids, laxatives, and vitamins/minerals. These products can bind with fluoride, preventing its full absorption.

Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.
