Wow, that was seriously not a Good Life Choice [1]  
Aquafresh toothpaste and the prescription mouthwash are SERIOUSLY not a good combination -- more than 12 hours later, my tongue and palate still feel scalded.

Will try Crest instead.

[1] I picked up this phrase from the Chronicle of Higher Education forums; one poster's mother-in-law is all about wanting to help her son and daughter-in-law to make Good Life Choices (in other words, to do whatever she wants, when she wants them to). The poster usually uses the phrase sarcastically, and I am doing so here.

That is a gigglesomely sardonic phrase, though.

I've only been loosely following your dental woes, so I don't know what the prescription mouthwash is, but you could ask your dentist if it's possible to dilute it. I've always done that with Listerine-type mouthwashes and it's easier on my mouth. I wouldn't do it without asking the doc, though.

Telling grown married children what to do- or giving them unsolicited advice, which amounts to the same thing, is seriously not a Good Life Choice! Live your own and let them live theirs!

Sorry for all your mouth woes- sending good thoughts.

*Wince* Not Periogard, was it? You used them right at the same time? Get the toothpaste good and rinsed out before you use that tasty stuff- the rinse will do really strange things to your taste buds.

I'm not sure; it's a generic, with a really nifty chemical structure diagram on the side of the bottle.

Chlorhexadine? That would be the generic.

That sounds right; the bottle is at home.
