How Should You Use Gyne-Lotrimin 3 (Vaginal)

Cream, Suppository, Tablet, Tampon, Ointment

  • Your doctor will tell you how much medicine to use and how often. Use this medicine at bedtime.
  • This medicine comes with patient instructions. Read and follow these instructions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
  • Wash your hands before and after using this medicine.
  • The cream or ointment comes in a tube. You will use an applicator to put the medicine into your vagina. The applicator is an empty plastic tube called a barrel that is open at one end and has a plunger (another piece of plastic that can move inside the barrel) at the other end.
  • Remove the cap from the end of the tube of cream or ointment. Squeeze the medicine from the tube into the open end of the applicator until the barrel is filled with medicine.
  • If you are using the vaginal tablet or suppository, unwrap the medicine and place it in the applicator as directed. You may wet the suppository with warm water or a water soluble lubricating gel (K-Y® Jelly). You should not use petroleum jelly (Vaseline®).
  • Put the applicator into the vagina (like you would a tampon) as far as you can and push the plunger all the way in. Remove the applicator and wash it with warm soapy water.
  • If you are using the medicated tampon, leave the tampon in your vagina overnight and remove it in the morning.
  • Wear only clean cotton underwear (panties) instead of nylon or rayon underwear. The medicine will come out of your vagina, so wear a minipad or sanitary napkin to protect your clothing. Keep using this medicine for as long as your doctor tells you to. Continue to use it even if your menstrual period begins. Use pads rather than tampons.
  • If a dose is missed:
  • Use your medicine as soon as you remember that you have missed your dose.
  • If it is nearly time for your next dose, wait until then to use the medicine and skip the missed dose.
  • You should not use two doses at the same time.
