Caphosol Mouth Rinse

When prescribing Caphosol® (supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse) to treat dry mouth or mouth sores, the specific dosing guidelines will vary, depending on several factors. Some of the factors that may affect your dosage include the reason you are taking the medicine and how you respond to it.
 
Caphosol is normally used to rinse the mouth several times a day, usually 2 to 10 times a day. Each Caphosol dose consists of two ampules -- one blue (Caphosol A) and one white (Caphosol B). To use this medication, you will need to mix the contents of the two ampules in a glass immediately before each dose.
 
Do not use Caphosol more than 10 times a day, unless otherwise instructed by your healthcare provider. Also, wait at least 15 minutes after each dose before eating, drinking, or using other mouth washes.
