All about: Mycelex-7 Cream

Big Image
Generic Name: Clotrimazole Vaginal Cream (7 Day) (kloe-TRIM-a-zole)
Brand Name: Examples include Gyne-Lotrimin and Mycelex-7

Mycelex-7 Cream is used for:

Treating vaginal yeast infections and relieving external itching and irritation caused by yeast infections.

Mycelex-7 Cream is an antifungal agent. It works by weakening the cell membrane of the fungus, resulting in the death of the fungus.

Do NOT use Mycelex-7 Cream if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Mycelex-7 Cream
  • you have never had a vaginal yeast infection diagnosed by a doctor
  • you have itching caused by a condition other than a yeast infection
  • you have stomach, shoulder, or lower back pain; fever; chills; nausea; foul-smelling vaginal discharge; or vomiting

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Some medical conditions may interact with Mycelex-7 Cream. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
  • if you have the blood disease porphyria or a history of liver disease or diabetes, or you have been exposed to HIV
  • if this is the first time you have had vaginal itching and discomfort
  • if you have vaginal yeast infections often (eg, your symptoms return within 2 months) or your symptoms do not clear up with treatment
  • if you are taking antibiotics
