FLAGYSTATIN OVULES (METRONIDAZOLE/NYSTATIN)

Flagystatin Ovules Description

Flagystatin Ovules are used to treat infections of the vagina caused by a mixture of certain bacteria and fungi. These infections can include Trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted disease caused by a small organism called Trichomonas vaginalis; or a fungal infection caused by Candida albicans.

A Flagystatin ovule should be inserted deep into the vagina before bedtime for the number of days prescribed by your physician. Moistening the ovule under water for a second or two just before inserting into the vagina will help it to dissolve more easily.

How the Active Ingredients Can Clear Up Your Infection

Flagystatin Ovules contain two active ingredients; Metronidazole and Nystatin. Once the ovule is inserted as directed, your body heat will begin to dissolve and release the medication where it is needed. Metronidazole is the antibiotic that enters the bacterial and protozoal cells and damages their genetic material so the bacteria are unable to multiply. Nystatin targets the fungal cell walls so holes form and its contents leak out

More About Trichomoniasis and Candida Albicans

In women, Trichomoniasis can cause a foul-smelling vaginal discharge, genital itching and painful urination and sexual intercourse. The symptoms of Trichomoniasis are similar to those of other sexually transmitted infections, so you will need to see a doctor for a physical exam and tests to confirm the diagnosis. A Trichomoniasis infection can last for months or even years if it is not treated. Trichomoniasis is usually cured within a week to ten days with proper treatment. Sexual contact should be avoided until the infection is cleared up.

Candida albicans is a fungus that is normally present on the skin and in mucous membranes such as the vagina, mouth, or rectum. A yeast infection, also known as vaginal Candidiasis, occurs when there is an overgrowth of the yeast called Candida that normally lives in the vagina. This imbalance may be attributed to a number of causes such as taking antibiotics, pregnancy, undergoing hormone therapy or certain medical conditions like diabetes or HIV infection. Vaginal yeast infections are common in women with symptoms that include: extreme itching in the vaginal area, white, clumpy vaginal discharge, and painful intercourse.

Before Flagystatin Ovules is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding to be certain Flagystatin Ovules are safe to use. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list current meds you take or use so your doctor can determine if it’s okay to insert the Flagystatin Ovules.

Flagystatin Ovules Recommendations

Condoms and diaphragms may be less effective while using Flagystatin Ovules so alternative methods of birth control should be used while you are using this medication. Avoid douches, vaginal washes, tampons and soaps with an acidic pH as they may promote fungal growth.

Severe side effects may occur if you consume alcohol while undergoing treatment with Flagystatin Ovules. You should wait at least 24 hours after treatment has ended to avoid these unpleasant side effects.
