How to Use tioconazole

Vaginal Ointment

This medicine is for use in the vagina. Do not take by mouth. Wash hands before and after use. Read package directions carefully before using. Use this medicine at bedtime, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Follow product instructions for application.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. While this medicine may be used in girls as young as 12 years for selected conditions, precautions do apply.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?

They need to know if you have any of these conditions:

  • abdominal, back or shoulder pain
  • diabetes
  • fever or chills
  • foul-smelling vaginal discharge
  • HIV or AIDS
  • immune system problems
  • nausea, vomiting
  • vaginal itching or discomfort for the first time
  • an unusual or allergic reaction to tioconazole, other medicines, foods, dyes or preservatives
  • pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • breast-feeding
What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only that dose. Do not take double or extra doses.

What should I watch for while using this medicine?

Tell your doctor or health care professional if your symptoms do not start to get better within 3 days or if they last longer than 7 days.

It is better not to have sex until you have finished your treatment. This medicine may damage condoms or diaphragms and cause them not to work properly. It may also decrease the effect of vaginal spermicides. Do not rely on any of these methods to prevent sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy while you are using this medicine.

Vaginal medicines usually will come out of the vagina during treatment. To keep the medicine from getting on your clothing, wear a mini-pad or sanitary napkin. The use of tampons is not recommended since they may soak up the medicine. To help clear up the infection, wear freshly washed cotton, not synthetic, underwear.

Where should I keep my medicine?

Keep out of the reach of children.

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F). Do not freeze. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.
