Medications Causing Mouth Ulcers

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Some medications have been linked to the development of oral sores, inflammation or discoloration of the soft tissues in the mouth. These medications include those prescribed for blood pressure control, immunosuppressive agents, oral contraceptives and some chemotherapeutic agents. If you take any of these and develop a soft-tissue reaction, Delmarva Dental Services can prescribe a special oral hygiene regimen to limit the discomfort caused by oral ulcers or inflammation.
