My parents were wondering if dad should not use the magic mouthwash after trtmnts.   Does anyone know if this is ok to use still?  He's 3 weeks post trtmnt... any thoughts?  I think he thought just to use this for pain!

I went through about 6 bottles of "Oregon" magic mouth wash.  I sip it , swished it and drank it.  When I was finished needing it I quit.  I quit somewhere in the first few weeks after treatment ended.  Matter-of-fact I tried it once down the "time line" road and could not believe I loved it so much, but I did.

If he needs it, more power to him.  If it  starts to create a problem then consult his doctor.

Good Luck,

I used it for about 6 weeks post treatment. Eventually I didn't need it anymore and that was it. If his mouth is still hurting, I don't see any reason not to.

Thanks everyone for your input.  Mom wanted me to put this question out there to see what you all thought.  I'm going to pass on the feedback!

HARD for a week after treatment.  My doc said to use it as long as I needed to and he'd give me refills if I needed them :)  Hope your dad is doing better each day!
