Stomatitis, gingivitis, tonsillitis – all these diseases of the oral cavity are usually bacterial in nature. Typically, when such abnormalities doctors used to prescribe antibiotics. However, not all patients tolerate them well, and many have a stubborn prejudice. And in that case, if a sick person is a child, the selection of effective and safe drug becoming a serious problem. In such cases, can help out the medicine I have is a modern antiseptic for the throat and oral cavity, which includes only natural for the human body components.
Probably everyone knows that one of the functions of saliva is the disinfection of the oral cavity. However, not all know, so the saliva is a natural antiseptic. The main component of saliva, exhibiting antimicrobial activity, is the protein, the enzyme lysozyme. Its full name is mucolytic enzyme is a peptidoglycan-N-acetylmuramic-hydrolase. Lysozyme is one of the natural components of the human immune system. It is contained also in breast milk and is on the mucous membranes.
Lysozyme contributes to the destruction of the shells of various harmful microorganisms. Interestingly, this substance is active not only against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria but also against some viruses and fungi.
It is the lysozyme is the main component of the drug. Thus, I have has a natural healing effect on the mouth and throat. Unfortunately, natural lysozyme contained in saliva, may be insufficient when massive attacks on the body of pathogenic microorganisms. Thus, I have provides additional doses of lysozyme due to its concentration becomes sufficient to exhibit antiseptic effect.
In addition, lysozyme stimulates certain elements of the immune system cells, e.g., antibodies, involved in the formation of the nonspecific immune response of the mucous membranes.
The second component is pyridoxine. This is the name of the majority or what not to say, however, pyridoxine is also known to the General public under the name of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is one of the most important for our body compounds, the need for which is greatly increased in patients with lesions of the mucous membrane of the mouth and throat. Pyridoxine performs a protective function in relation to the mucosa, helping it to recover from severe bacterial and viral infections. In particular, pyridoxine prevents the formation of aft on the mucous membrane. Vitamin B6 does not interfere with the therapeutic effect of lysozyme.
I have is antibiotic or immunomodulator?
It should be noted that the drug is not applicable to antibiotics, although its mechanism of action is largely similar to the mechanism of action of antibiotics. However, antibiotics penetrate the blood system and often create a serious burden on the kidneys and liver and also kill beneficial flora in the digestive tract and other parts of the body, what I have does not. It has only a local antiseptic effect. In addition, I have contains vitamin, promoting regeneration of tissues. Also sometimes I have called an immune modulator. However, although lysozyme to a certain extent affects the immune system, it is a secondary property and immunomodulator drug can be called a stretch. In contrast to these immunomodulators, the drug does not interfere with the delicate mechanism of immune system, although providing substantial assistance.
The drug is used in the practice of the treatment of dental diseases and diseases affecting the mouth and throat. It is primarily a pathology caused by fungal, bacterial or viral infection:
- gingivitis (inflammation of gums);
- aphthous ulceration of the mucous membrane of the mouth;
- catarrhal phenomena in the throat accompanied by redness, edema, cough, and sore;
- erosive processes in the mucosa of the oral cavity;
Also, the drug can be prescribed after surgeries to remove tonsils.
In most cases, the reception Lisobact must be accompanied by a treatment with antibacterial or antiviral drugs. Severe coughing also requires taking mucolytic and expectorant drugs.
There is only one form of the drug – the pills I have for pain. Each tablet is 20 mg of lysozyme and 10 mg of pyridoxine hydrochloride. As tablets there are a number of excipients:
- saccharin sodium 0.5 mg;
- tragacantha gum – 10 mg;
- lactose monohydrate – 155 mg;

Not always I have can be purchased at your local pharmacy. And someone may seem inflated price of the drug, someone may show intolerance means. In short, the reasons for which may need to be replaced Lisobact to another agent, may be many. There is only one structural analogue of the drug, which is called Lysozyme Pyridoxine. Also at the pharmacy you can find other antiseptics for the oral cavity, including those with immunostimulatory properties.
Among such tools are:
Due to the presence in the product solely of natural active ingredients list of contraindications for its use are small. The main contraindication is individual intolerance of the drug components. It is also not advisable to give the drug to children under 3 years. The reason for this, however, is not the fact that the components of the drug harmful to young children, and especially the use of the product. After all, it is necessary to keep the mouth to complete resorption. But a rare baby two years of age will follow this recommendation. Most likely, he’ll just swallow the pill, because it is quite pleasant to the taste. Thus, the whole therapeutic effect of the drug will be reversed.

However, pregnancy may require correction doses of the drug, therefore, it should be under the control of the therapist.
Interaction with other drugs
The drug has no significant negative interactions. Moreover, it was found that I have increase the therapeutic effect of many antibiotics (penicillin, chloramphenicol) and diuretics. However, some drugs tend to reduce the activity of pyridoxine. These include immunosuppressants, pyrazinamide, isoniazid, penicillamine, estrogens in particular, and contained in oral contraceptives. In addition, I have reduce the effectiveness of levodopa.
The drug, a small number of contraindications – for the same reason why he doesn’t have any significant side effects. Because it is composed of mostly natural ingredients, always present in the human body. However, any drug can manifest reactions of individual intolerance in the form of allergic side effects (hives, itching, redness, rash), and I have not in this case is the exception to the rule. If the drug appear adverse events, particularly allergic reactions, the use of funds must cease immediately.

From compliance with this recommendation depends on the effectiveness of the drug. In addition, after resorption of the tablets within half an hour is not recommended nor eat or drink to preserve the film of drugs on the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat.
