How to use
Dosage and directions for use: In general, a single dose treatment will be sufficient for Candida vaginitis. The Canesten® 1 vaginal tablet should be inserted, preferably at night, into the vagina as deeply as possible (see instructions for use of applicator). This is best achieved when lying back with the legs slightly drawn up. If necessary, a second treatment may be carried out. It is recommended that the treatment should be timed so as to avoid the menstrual period. For prevention of reinfection the partner should be treated locally with clotrimazole cream at the same time, in as far as symptoms (e.g. pruritus, inflammation, etc.) are present. In individual cases where disintegration of the tablet does not occur, such as in dry vagina associated with menopause, it is recommended that Canesten® vaginal cream be used. Prior to application remove one-tablet from the aluminium foil (as illustrated.) Directions for using the applicator: 1. Pull out plunger A until it stops. Place a vaginal tablet into the applicator B. 2. Insert applicator containing the tablet carefully and as deeply as possible into vagina (preferably lying on your back). 3. Push plunger A until it stops, thereby depositing the tablet into the vagina. Remove the applicator.
