Anyone know of a B&M Store to buy Peridex?

A friend of mine recently asked me to find something similiar to Colgate's Periodgard over the counter for him. I love a challenge.

Searching on-line the best I can seem to come up with is something called Peridex. But I can't seem to find it in stores.

Has anyone seen Peridex in stores? It is a mouth rinse to treat painful gums

Well you can't find it in the stores because its by Prescription only

Usually a RX. Chlorhexidine is the actual rinse. Your dentist may have it on hand or can write you a script. SAMs club pharmacy has it for $4 and you do NOT have to be a member to get it.

Oh, I thought that Peridex was an Over the Counter substitute for the Chlorehexidine.

Does anyone know of anything similar that does not require a prescription?

He is complaining that his gums and teeth hurt. Sorry I can't be more descriptive, but that's all he's giving me.

He previously had a script for PerioGard, but he hasn't filled it in one year.

He is leaving the country in 2 weeks (and to have a dentist in Israel) fix his teeth, but I just wanted to help him get some relief before he leaves

I would get an alcohol free rinse with fluoride from drug store (any brand doesn't matter). That will help the tissue in general. If he has a perio problem it's not going to treat it but it may help symptoms. I would also advise him to take an anti inflammatory if he can take those type drugs (NSAIDS). Aleve, ibuprofen etc. The best thing to do is get him to a dentist if he's hurting that bad as other issues may be happening. Things can go from bad to worse quickly with teeth and untreated infections in general. Hope this helps…. Good luck.

Thanks. I'll pass the info on. He is going to a dentist, but not for another 2 weeks and I just wanted to help until then.
