More information about Fluomizin
Fluomizin is an antiseptic treatment for bacterial vaginosis (BV). It targets the bacteria responsible for the infection, killing it so that your body can more quickly recover.
One tablet (10mg) should be inserted into the vagina every night, for 6 nights straight. You should complete the course even if symptoms disappear.
Fluomizin is often prescribed as an alternative if other medications (such as Dalacin) prove ineffective. If you are unsure what treatment is right for you, consult a doctor before ordering.
Bacterial vaginosis is a condition characterized by an infection of the vagina.
A woman’s vagina needs a delicate balance of bacteria, including the good bacteria lactobacilli. When there is a loss of lactobacilli and a growth of other harmful bacteria, symptoms like discharge and irritation will occur.
Fluomizin contains the active substance dequalinium chloride - an antiseptic and anti-infective. It works by attacking the negative bacteria cells, weakening the cell walls and preventing them from creating vital enzymes. This combined effect kills the bacteria and helps your vagina restore a natural balance.
As an antiseptic, Fluomizin differs from antibiotic treatments Dalacin (clindamycin) and Metronidazole. It will only treat conditions at their source. For BV, this means treatment should be inserted directly into the vagina.
If you are ever unsure about instructions, speak to a medical professional.
You should not exceed the recommended course - one 10mg tablet nightly for six nights. If you find there is no change to your symptoms after completing a course, contact your doctor.
To use Fluomizin:
If you find your symptoms improve before the end of the course, do not stop using the tablets. The infection can return if a course is not completed.
Do not insert more tablets than advised - this will not make them more effective and will increase the chance of side effects.
If you forget to take a tablet, do not take extra. Instead, continue taking them as normal and extend the course by a day. If you miss more than one dose, contact your doctor.
If you are due to have your period when using Fluomizin, you should wait for menstruation to finish before inserting the next tablet.
Do not clean the inside of your vagina or use any vaginal douche devices - this will lead to more vaginal infections.
