Tell Patients Denatured Alcohol is NOT for Medical Use
We're getting questions about the different types of alcohols.
Ethyl alcohol or ethanol is drinkable...but it isn't just for toasting the New Year. It's used as an antiseptic to kill germs...and can be found in mouthwashes, hand sanitizers, and antiseptic wipes.
It's also a solvent in some liquid meds...dexamethasone elixir, promethazine DM syrup, digoxin solution, NyQuil, etc.
