Use exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Do not take tioconazole vaginal by mouth. It is for use only in your vagina.

This medication comes with patient instructions for safe and effective use. Follow these directions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

This medicine is usually given as a single dose. You should notice some improvement in your symptoms after the 1-day treatment. It may take up to 7 days after using the 1-day dose before your symptoms go away completely.

Multum calldoc

Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after 3 days, or if you still have symptoms for longer than 7 days. Frequent vaginal yeast infections that do not clear up with treatment may be a sign of a more serious condition.

The single-use applicator is for one use only. Throw the applicator away after one use, even if there is still some medicine left in it after inserting your dose.

Tioconazole vaginal contains mineral oil or petrolatum, which can weaken the latex rubber in a condom or diaphragm. These forms of birth control may be less effective if you use them during your treatment with tioconazole vaginal. Use another form of birth control while you are using tioconazole and for at least 3 full days after your treatment ends.

Multum rt

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Do not warm the medicine applicator before using tioconazole vaginal.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since tioconazole vaginal is used as a single dose, it does not have a daily dosing schedule.

What happens if I overdose?

Since tioconazole vaginal is used as a single dose from a prefilled applicator, an overdose is unlikely to occur.

What should I avoid while using tioconazole vaginal?

Avoid wearing tight-fitting, synthetic clothing such as nylon underwear or panty hose that does not allow air circulation. Wear loose-fitting clothing made of cotton and other natural fibers until your infection is healed.
