Our compounding pharmacy can no longer make and sell the non-prescription version.
Federal regulators prohibit 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.
See below for information on how you could make a reasonable alternative yourself – at home.
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 mean 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 teaspoonfuls of Antacid Liquid
- 3 teaspoonfuls simple syrup (Kayro would work)
- OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoonful of a flavor (CoolAid, tea, soft drink, etc.)
