Are you in the U.S.? There are no prescription drugs in the US under that name. I checked all the databases I can find, my best guess is that it is some form of an OTC supplement.

My husband was also prescribed this medicine, so I decided to research it. What I found out is the pharmacist mixes maalox, benadryl and lidocaine together and then you have Marys Magic Potion. I hope this helps.

Thanks for providing that information Cary.

Being something the pharmacist has to mix would explain why it was not listed in pharmaceutical directories and databases.

This gives me the impression that it was once a product available for sale that contained these types of ingredients, which is no longer sold, but some doctors still like to recommend its use, so the pharmacist has to mix and equivelent.

I have to recommend being exceptionally cautious with this mix, be very careful to use only as directed and measure dosage amounts carefully, ingesting too much Lidocaine could cause severe health problems and/or overdose.

Oh and to the original poster, if you still cannot find a pharmacist who will mix/compound this for you, there are other options available. The main purpose of this one, with the Lidocaine in it, would be to treat mouth, throat, or stomach irritations or pain from something, and there are other things you can use that are just as effective, without having to find someone who will mix it for you, which will also cost extra.

I take the presribed Mary's Magic Potion. I have had mouth, tongue and gum sores for years. Doctor says that there are some people that just have them and they do not know the cause. This is the only thing that will help heal them for me.

My bottle from the pharmasist says that it is....
NYSTAT/HYDROC/TETRAC/DIPHEN A
Is this the same mixture that Cary says or if not....what is this mixture I get? Whatever it is it has been a lifesaver magic potion for me!

Thank You

Mary's Magic Potion
My 2nd cousin who has recently returned from Iraq was visiting us and had chest pains. We called an ambulance and they took him to the VA Hospital..They gave him this concoction and he said it did have a numbing effect but did not help the pain. After six hours they gave morphine..and after three more hours released him with no diagnosis. (probably Gall bladder) The foriegn nurse said this medicine was first used during WW1..Wierd!

Just this morning I was given a prescription for Mary's MP, and so I am surfing a few sites trying to learn something more about it. (Seems to be a well kept secret!) As for me, I had melanoma in the neck area, and radiation is currently being used as follow-up to a radical neck dissection... and it is these radiation treatments that are causing me to have severe difficulties when it comes to swallowing and eating. I have been told that Mary's will help to relax or lubricate the throat muscles to make eating a bit easier(?) I hope that my experience with it is successful. Jim

you best bet is to ask the nurse you are working under or clinical instructor. it could be a concoction of many things.

Jess Haines, PharmD Candidate Says:

Mary's Magic Potion is a combination of prescription/OTC products for oral fungal infections, specifically candidia spp.

Each pharmacy may make it a little different, but most places for a 240mL bottle will combine:
1.5g Tetracycline
60mg Hydrocortisone
60 mL Nystatin Suspension
180 mL diphenhydramine 12.5/5mL

Hope this helps.

This medication is used commonly for mouth infections, sores and/or mouth pain. It can have different ingredients. If you stay in nursing this will not be the last time you see it. It is almost always Mary's and usually called Magic but it can be called a mouthwash, potion, swish, or cocktail.......

I get lie bumps every now and then, there little white dots that are really really painful. I think I get them whenever I eat salty food or something like that, although im not sure. Anyway, when I went to the health center for this problem I was prescribed Mary's Magic Mixture, from what I remember it worked pretty good.

Mary's Magic Potion is used to treat Thrush (a yeast bloom in the mouth/throat that can result from antibiotic use).
It contains: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) elixir; nystatin suspension; hydrocortisone; and tetracycline.
The mixture that's made of maalox, lidocaine viscous and benadryl (diphenhydramine) elixir is what I've known as: Esophogeal Mix - for chest pain resulting from severe acid reflux, etc.

Almost any anaesthetic can burn a little before it begins numbing. If you've ever had a cut numbed before it was stitched, you know what I mean - and the stinging/warming from the novacaine when you get a tooth filled.

John Says:

There are several compounds called Mary's Magic Potion/Mouthwash.
The ones for Thrush don't usually contain lidocaine; for chemo-related sores, it may.
I've seen MDs write for Mary's Magic, and give the recipe for Esophageal Mix.
There are many variations, used for mouth sores resulting from many causes.
The Esophageal Mix is often given to people in ERs with chest pains caused by a severe reflux attach.
