Are there any medications that cause tooth decay?
I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but unfortunately, several medications have a negative effect on teeth by different mechanisms.
These medications include antacids, antidepressants, blood pressure medications, pain relief medications, antihistamines and decongestants.
So, I would recommend that you send back more details on the medications you are taking to be able to help you further with details on how to avoid this negative effect.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
You are most welcome.
May you always be in good health.
Please let me know if you need any further help and if you don't have any other clarifications then you may please close the discussion.
Hope I have answered your query.
