Pharmaceutical companies now produce sugar-free medicines and doctors and dentists should be encouraged to prescribe them when appropriate.

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): http://www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/documents/digitalasset/dh_102982.pdf
