Beginning early 2018 Federal regulators have prohibited the preparation of any compounded item without a doctor’s prescription. There are no prescription items in the formula listed below. However, it may only be compounded if ordered by a doctor licensed to write prescriptions. The ingredients are important but the new interpretation focuses on the activity of compounding.
Question: Could you let me know how I could make the miracle mouthwash without a prescription. I would like to use it for my sore throat, in addition, my nephew needs to use something too until he can get in to see the doctor. He likely needs to have his tonsils removed as they are extremely swollen, again! He has white spots on his tonsils, and keeps getting sick. He is unable to get into the doctor for a few weeks.
Larry’s Response: White spots on the tonsils often means strep throat and it should be treated by a doctor. Waiting for a couple of weeks is NOT recommended. Please try to get to an urgent care center or an emergency room.
Strep throat must not be treated at home.
But to answer your initial question:
Miracle Mouthwash with NO ingredients that require a prescription contains:
- 10 teaspoonfuls of Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) solution
- 10 teasponnfuls of Antacid Liquid
- 3 teaspoonfuls simple syrup (Kayro would work)
- 1 teaspoonful of a flavor
