Abstract:  Compounding magic mouthwash preparations can be a challenge. Although the actual preparation of the mouthwash is not difficult, there is very little published information about these preparations and much of the available data is very dated. Compounding pharmacists need to utilize their compounding resources and drug knowledge to help practitioners develop these formulations to meet the specific needs of their patients. This article discusses some of the more common ingredients used in mouthwash preparations and reviews the minimal data that is available on this topic.
