What is it?

episil® oral liquid is used for the treatment of oral pain caused by oral mucositis.

Oral mucositis can be induced by radiation and chemotherapy during cancer treatment. The risk is higher with certain types of drugs prescribed for certain types of cancers. It is also much higher if you receive both radiation and chemotherapy.2-6

When to Use

Oral pain is common during cancer therapies

Oral pain associated with inflammation of the inside lining of the mouth is often a serious side effect of cancer treatments (radiation and chemotherapy). This oral condition is called oral mucositis (OM) and causes redness, mouth ulcers and sores that can be very painful and distressing. Oral pain can make it difficult to eat, drink, and even speak, affecting patients’ quality of life and their social and emotional well-being.1

Episil works!

Episil is the only thing that works effectively for mucositis. I was quite disappointed to learn that it was no longer available in the US (I used it 2 years ago for chemo related mucositis and now needed it again). After I contacted the company they steered me to countries where it was available. Thanks to the Hope Cancer Center I was able to order it. It arrived very quickly! The customer service was excellent. I’m happy to have a great product that relieves the misery of mucositis. Thank you for your help! I’m telling my oncologist and staff so others can benefit too.

AMAZING

I purchased this product due to an inflammatory tongue condition, and it is SO good. The protective layer is like putting lip balm on chapped lips and while the sensation is a little odd, the relief is immense. I am now purchasing for my sister who is suffering from chemo related mouth ulcers. I highly recommend!

When my parcel arrived it was so nice to see that the ladies sent me a personal thank you card wishing me well. This small gesture means a lot and reassured me that I was buying from a company that cares about you and not just the product you are buying. I will continue to buy from Hope during my journey!
