CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Sodium fluoride acts systemically (before tooth eruption) and topically (post eruption) by increasing tooth resistance to acid dissolution, by promoting remineralization and by inhibiting the cariogenic microbial process.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

It has been established that ingestion of fluoridated drinking water (1 ppm F) during the period of tooth development results in significant decrease in the incidence of dental caries. Sodium Fluoride Drops 0.5 mg were developed to provide systemic fluoride for use as a supplement in pediatric patients from 6 months to age 3 and older, living in areas where the drinking water fluoride level does not exceed 0.6 ppm F.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Do not use in areas where drinking water exceeds 0.6 ppm F. Do not administer to pediatric patients less than 6 months old.

WARNINGS

(See “CONTRAINDICATIONS” above.

PRECAUTIONS

See ““OVERDOSAGE”” section. Incompatibility of fluoride with dairy foods has been reported due to formation of calcium fluoride which is poorly absorbed. Not for ophthalmic use.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Allergic rash and other idiosyncrasies have been rarely reported. To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

OVERDOSAGE

Prolonged daily ingestion of excessive fluoride will result in varying degrees of dental fluorosis. For safety purposes, the total amount of sodium fluoride in a 50 mL bottle of Sodium Fluoride Drops 0.5 mg (25 mg F) conforms with the recommendations of the American Dental Association for the maximum to be dispensed at one time.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Daily oral dose: (in areas where the drinking water contains less than 0.3 ppm F): 6 months to age 3: one half dropperful (1/2 mL); age 3-6, one dropperful (1 mL); age 6-16, two dropperfuls (2 mL). When drinking water is partially fluoridated (0.3 to 0.6 ppm F inclusive) dose as follows: 6 months to age 3, fluoride supplementation not indicated; age 3-6, one half dropperful (1/2 mL); age 6-16, one dropperful (1 mL)*
