This product is indicated for the treatment of specific types of vaginal infections, including mixed fungal and bacterial infections. It comprises two medications: nystatin and metronidazole. Nystatin acts as an antifungal agent, inhibiting fungal growth, while metronidazole functions as an antibiotic, halting the growth of certain bacteria, particularly Trichomonas-type bacteria. This combination product works to alleviate itching and reduce irritating discharge associated with these infections.

Uses and Dosage

This product is intended for vaginal use exclusively. Utilizing the applicator provided, insert one ovule deeply into the vagina, typically once daily before bedtime for a duration of 10 days, or as instructed by your doctor.

Before and after using this medication, ensure you wash your hands. Adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines for placing an ovule into the applicator. Insert the applicator deeply into the vagina and depress the plunger to dispense the medication. After each use, clean the applicator thoroughly with warm, soapy water and rinse it well.

Avoid consuming alcohol while using this medication and for at least 24 hours after completing the treatment. Drinking alcohol concurrently with this medication may lead to stomach cramps, flushing, nausea, vomiting, and headaches.

Continue using this product until you have completed the full prescribed course, even if your symptoms subside within a few days. Premature cessation of treatment may result in the recurrence of the infection.

Should your symptoms worsen or fail to improve within the specified 10-day period, promptly inform your doctor. You may require additional medication to effectively treat your condition.

It may be necessary for your sexual partner to receive medication to prevent reinfection. Consult your doctor for further guidance in this regard.
