Farington is a local antiseptic with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.

Indications Farington

Local treatment of symptoms of inflammation of the mucous membrane of the throat and larynx.

Release form

Produced in the form of tablets, which must be resorbed, on blister plates No. 10. One package contains 2 blisters.


The active substance of the drug is chlorhexidine, which has a bactericidal effect on gram-negative and gram-positive microbes (such as Str. Mutans, anaerobes, Str. Salvarius, Klebsiella, Str. Sanquis, Proteus, E.coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Veillonella species, and Selenomonas ), and in addition it prevents the growth of candida fungi, as well as individual mold fungi. This substance blocks the development of protein amino groups that enter the structure of cytolemmas. It seeps into the cells of microbes and is embedded in membranes, changing its functioning, settling on the cytoplasm, thereby interfering with the penetration of oxygen. This causes a deficiency of ATP, as a result of which pathogenic microorganisms are destroyed.

Ascorbic acid helps to remove mucus edema, increases the activity of local immunity, and also participates in the process of collagen and tissue repair.


Chlorhexidine is not absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract or by mucous membranes. Approximately 10% of the substance is cleaved in the liver, and the residue is excreted together with the feces in unchanged form.

Ascorbic acid is well absorbed into the digestive tract. The binding with plasma proteins is 25%. In the process of metabolism is converted into dihydroascorbic and ethadic acids. Then it is excreted from the body together with the urine.

Use Farington during pregnancy

Studies on the use of chlorhexidine in pregnant women have not been conducted, and as a result of experiments conducted in mice, a negative effect on the fetus was not detected. Therefore, before use, consultation with a physician is necessary.
