Fluomizin is prescribed to treat bacterial vaginosis that occurs due to a change in the balance of bacteria in the vagina. It is an antiseptic treatment that has the active ingredient dequalinium chloride. Tablets are inserted into the vagina and target the bacteria in the infected area, killing it quickly before it can reproduce.
The bacteria in a woman's vagina must be carefully balanced to prevent an infection from occurring. There needs to be an ample amount of good bacteria known as lactobacilli. If there is not enough present, it can cause harmful bacteria to overpower the vagina and grow, leading to symptoms such as irritation and discharge. Fluomizin stops this process from occurring.
The active ingredient in Fluomizin is dequalinium chloride which works as an antiseptic and an anti-infective in the vagina. Once the tablet is inserted, the ingredient attacks bacterial cells.
In response, the cell walls will weaken, and the cell’s vital enzymes cannot function. As a result, the bacteria dies, allowing the vagina to be restored to a natural balance.
Fluomizin comes as 10mg oval white or coloured tablets. It should not be used unless you are advised so by your doctor or pharmacist. It is essential to inform them of any other medication you are taking, medical history or allergies you may have.
The doctor will most likely recommend that you take one tablet each evening for 6 nights. Then if your symptoms do not subside, your doctor will advise you to return for a follow-up appointment. It is also important to read the instructions in the packaging before taking it.
If you don't know how to use Fluomizin, speak to a medical professional first.
You should never exceed the recommended dose, which is one tablet a night for 6 nights. You should use Fluomizin every evening before you go to bed. Before you open the medication, you should wash your hands so you reduce the risk of cross-contamination. When using Fluomizin, you should do the following:
If your period happens to occur mid-treatment, you should stop the treatment of Fluomizin and continue once finished. Plus, don't use a vaginal douche or other vaginal devices when taking this medication; it could increase the risk of infection.
Even if you notice your symptoms easing up, do not stop taking the treatment. If you do this, you could be putting yourself at risk of the symptoms returning.
It is also equally as important to not take more medication than stated as it will just endanger your body; it won't increase the effectiveness of the tablet. Similarly, if you forget to take the tablet, don't take extra; just continue taking them as normal the following day.
It is important to know that Fluomizin contains ingredients that do not dissolve entirely. Don't be alarmed if you find the remains of the tablet in your underwear. If this occurs, it won't prevent the effectiveness of the treatment. In this instance, you may wish to use a sanitary towel or panty liner.
If you have the impression that the effect of Fluomizin is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
