This pessary capsule provides fast and effective treatment against vaginal thrush, helping combat inflammation, discharge and associated symptoms.
This Canesten Pessary 100mg treatment contains six individual capsules and an applicator for easy insertion into the vagina. One pessary should be inserted into the vagina at night before bed for six consecutive days, or alternatively, two capsules can be inserted into the vagina for three consecutive days.
The carton contains six Canesten 100 mg Pessaries held inside a foil blister pack and an applicator for insertion of the pessaries into the vagina. This is a full course of treatment. However, in the event that your symptoms persist upon completion of this course, see your doctor as he/she may recommend further treatment.
1. The applicator should be used to insert a pessary into the vagina before going to sleep on six consecutive nights. Alternatively, two pessaries may be inserted into the vagina before going to sleep on three consecutive nights. Carefully put the applicator as deeply as is comfortable into the vagina (this is easiest when lying on your back with knees beat up)
2. Holding the applicator in place, slowly press the plunger until it stops so that the pessary is deposited into the vagina. Remove the application.
After use, remove plunger completely by pulling it out of the applicator. Then wash it in warm (not boiling) soapy water. Rinse and dry carefully.
3. The symptoms of thrush such as burning, soreness or itching of the vagina and surrounding area should disappear within three days of treatment. If no improvement is seen after 7 days, tell your doctor.
If you are pregnant, breast-feeding or have a history of recurrent thrush, yeast or fungal infections, please consult your doctor for further guidance. If you suffer from allergies to any of the active ingredients found in Canestan, seek a doctor's advice for alternative forms of treatment.
Each pessary contains 100 mg of the active ingredient clotrimazole.
The other ingredients are Lactose, Maize Starch, Adipic Acid, Sodium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide and Polysorbate.
There are 6 pessaries and an applicator in a box.
Canesten Pessaries contain clotrimazole. This is one of a group of medicines called imidazoles which are used to treat fungal infections such as thrush.
