Anbesol Liquid

Anbesol Liquid provides fast, temporary relief from the pain caused by recurrent mouth ulcers, denture irritation and teething. It works in two ways:
  • Lidocaine hydrochloride is a local anaesthetic which stops the sensation of pain.
  • Chlorocresol and cetylpyridinium chloride kill bacteria to prevent infection.
Adults, children and the elderly:
  • Apply Anbesol Liquid undiluted to the affected area using a clean fingertip.
  • Two applications of Anbesol Liquid straight away will normally be enough for pain relief.
  • Do not apply more frequently than every 3 hours.
Babies only:
  • Apply Anbesol Liquid once to the affected area using a clean fingertip.
  • Do not apply more frequently than every 3 hours.
  • Active Ingredients: Lidocaine Hydrochloride 0.90%w/w, Chlorocresol 0.10%w/w and Cetylpyridinium Chloride 0.02%w/w.
  • Other Ingredient: Alcohol 96%, Menthol, Glycerol, Caramel Colouring (comprised of Quinoline Yellow (E104), Amaranth (E123), Sunset Yellow (E110) and Green S (E142)) and Purified Water.
  • Anbesol Liquid contains chlorocresol and the azo dyes amaranth (E123) and sunset yellow (E110) which may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. 
  • Anbesol Liquid contains 68% ethanol (alcohol), i.e. up to 0.753 mg per ml, equivalent to 15.1ml beer, 6.3ml wine per dose which may be harmful for those suffering from alcoholism. To be taken into account in pregnant or breastfeeding women, children and high risk groups such as patients with liver disease, or epilepsy.
Do not use Anbesol Liquid:
  • If you are allergic to lidocaine hydrochloride, chlorocresol, cetylpyridinium chloride, other anaesthetics similar to lidocaine or any of the other ingredients in this medicine.
  • If you have porphyria (a disease which causes stomach pain, constipation, changes in the colour of urine, skin rashes and disturbed behaviour).
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Anbesol Liquid:
  • If you have open wounds or damaged areas in the lining of your mouth as this may result in too much of the active ingredients being absorbed.
  • If symptoms continue for more than 7 days or recur frequently.
  • If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby. If you are breastfeeding small amounts of the active ingredient lidocaine will pass into your breast milk but in such small quantities that it should not harm your baby if this medicine is used as directed.
  • If you are taking, have recently taken or might take any of the following medicines as they may interfere with Anbesol Liquid:
    • Other anaesthetics or medicines similar to lidocaine for example antiarrhythmic drugs such as mexiletine which are used to control abnormal heartbeats.
    • Erythromycin a type of antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. 
    • Itraconazole a type of antifungal medicine used to treat fungal infections. 
    • Antiarrhythmic drugs such as amiodarone which are used to control abnormal heartbeats. 
    • Cimetidine used to treat stomach ulcers or heartburn. 
    • Beta-blockers used to treat heart conditions, high blood pressure or migraine.
    • Calcium chloride used for the treatment of hypocalcaemia or as a food additive. 
    • Codeine phosphate used to treat pain, diarrhoea or relieve coughs. 
    • Diamorphine hydrochloride a painkiller used to treat severe pain.
    • Paveretum used to treat moderate to severe pain and to calm you before an operation. 
    • Quinine hydrochloride used to treat malaria or leg cramps.
    • Methylcellulose used to treat constipation.
    • Non-ionic surfactants such as cetomacrogrol 1000 and polysorbate 80 which are used in medicines, foods and cosmetics.
