Ingalipt is best suited for adults and elderly people who, above all, want to prevent the disease or localize it at an early stage of development. As an added bonus – a nice price. As for Tantum Verde, it is more suitable for those who already have a running or rapidly progressing form of the disease of ENT organs and the oral cavity itself. A properly balanced composition and active substance (150 mg) will stifle the development of the pathogen, as well as improve the overall picture of the patient’s condition. Tantum Verde is also suitable for children. Applying it to a child, you can be sure of the exclusion of the onset of loringospasm.
Substances from the indazole group , such as Ingalipt and Tantum Verde, are used to irrigate the oral cavity in diagnosing complications of a flu or other infectious diseases. Both drugs are therapeutic and are taken in combination with other drugs.
In addition to the therapeutic effect, which is based on the inhibition of prostaglandin production, followed by restoration and stabilization of the cell membrane, drugs of this group have a local analgesic effect. This helps to reduce irritation in the throat and, as a result, minimize the likelihood of purulent sore throat.
The drug is available in the form of a spray for irrigation of the mouth and throat. The kit includes an extension nose for the localization of inaccessible foci of inflammation. Since the composition of the spray includes sulfanilamide, thymol, eucalyptus and peppermint oil, a complex effect is noted not only for tonsillitis, but also for acute viral infections, which are accompanied by the development of stomatitis and other foci of suppuration. Spray is produced exclusively in Russia and Ukraine, by companies such as Vips-Med and Stoma, respectively. According to the international coding, ATX occupies 5 positions, from drugs that affect the respiratory system to various antiseptics.
Any adult or child older than three years can use the spray in the treatment of tonsillitis, stomatitis, as well as ulcerative and aphthous laryngitis. You can use the drug with the aim of disinfecting the nasopharynx. In order to achieve the maximum effect from the use of the drug, in addition to observing the temperature regime of storage and shaking before use, it is necessary to exclude the intake of liquid and food one hour before and after irrigation of the oral cavity.
Pregnant and lactating inhalip use
It has no contraindications. Given the composition of the spray, namely the high concentration of essential oils with an insignificant combination of alcohol, it is necessary to consult and observe a doctor regarding the likelihood of allergic reactions in a child. The rest of the schedule of receptions remains unchanged. Clinical studies did not reveal side effects (subject to dosage) among a group of patients.
Among the side effects that are caused by overdose, there is the appearance of allergies (temporary and minor discomfort), as well as respiratory depression. Reflex bronchospasm is the cause of the presence of the same oils that make up the drug. When diagnosing individual intolerance, it is recommended to reduce the intake (number of sprays from 3 to 1) or refuse to use.
The maximum shelf life in a cool place is no more than 2 years.
Tantum Verde is a disinfecting medicine whose spectrum of action extends to 90% of known microorganisms. Its main task is to stop the reproduction and degradation of the metabolic chains of fungal infection at the cellular level.
Therefore, the spray can be used not only for the symptomatic treatment of pain at the time of the first signs of the disease, but also for all ENT organs in the following diseases:
- Gingivitis or gloss, stomatitis.
- Pharyngitis and laryngitis.
- Calculous inflammation of the glands.
- Adaptation of organs and oral cavity after surgery.
- A long course of dental treatment.
- Periodontal disease.
The drug is produced in Italy. In the anatomical-therapeutic-chemical classification, it occupies codes that are distinctive from Ingalipt. These are drugs that have an effect on the digestive tract, as well as drugs used in dentistry.
For effective treatment, the dosage and schedule of taking the drug must be observed. Adults are recommended from 2 to 6 uses of the drug per day, within the limit dosage of 2.04 mg. The latter is achieved through 8 full injections. The dosage in other cases is as follows:
- Children 6-12 years old – up to 4 injections 2-6 times a day.
- Children from 3-6 years old – one injection for every 4 kg of weight (limit – 4 full pressures) 2-6 times a day.
- Elderly people – a standard dosage of 2.04 mg at a time (limit).
Subject to dosage, it has no side effects. Shelf life is 4 years. There is also a release form in the form of tablets.
What do they have in common?
In addition to the active substance benzidamine hydrochloride, these drugs have other similar features, namely:
- Capacity of the bottle (both included have an accelerating nozzle).
- They are released without a prescription.
- Localization of the focus of inflammation (relief of pain) in the first 5 minutes after application.
- They contain vegetable oils and alcohol.
- Are allowed for use by pregnant and lactating.
- Storage conditions.
How are the drugs different?
First of all, sprays are distinguished by their taste. Tantum Verde tastes better, which is important when treating children. This is caused by a different group of excipients, as well as a decrease in the concentration of vegetable oils in combination with alcohol. A reduced dosage of the latter allowed us to achieve another significant advantage, in comparison with Ingalipt, – a 100% exclusion of loring spasm. Other key differences include:
- Production – Tantum Verde – a foreign drug manufactured exclusively by one company.
- Price – Ingalipt is significantly cheaper, with a comparable bottle volume.
- The action of Tantum Verde is more aimed at suppressing the already developed form of viral infection (effective use is possible even with purulent tonsillitis).
- Tantum Verde is allowed for use by children from 1 year (after examination by a doctor).
