Sodium and stannous fluorides are able to be broken down and then the fluorides can enter into and bond with the enamel. Enamel is made of a ring of ions and the Fluoride substitutes in the center to form a more stable ring. This new "ring" is more resistant to decay. ...Read more

Does promethazine, and Prozac (fluoxetine) interact? Im on promethazine, prozac, (fluoxetine) pantorazole sodium, and iron pills. Does any or all interact?
