Sugar-free medicines are now readily available in the marketplace and are an alternative to sugary medicines.

Ask your doctor if a sugar-free medicine is available for you or your children. Important for those on long-term medication.

An information leaflet listing sugar-free medicines alphabetically by brand or generic name and by therapeutic category is produced by the national Pharmaceutical Association (United Kingdom). This quick-reference guide to sugar-free medicines is a useful tool for doctors and dentists. An adapted version of this listing is provided in Delivering Better Oral Health: An evidence-based toolkit for prevention, published by the UK Department of Health (2009)
