Aci-Jel Vaginal Jelly (acetic acid/ricinoleic acid/oxyquinoline) is used to help restore and maintain the natural acid balance (pH) of the vagina, thereby treating vaginal infections (e.g., yeast, fungi) or making them less likely to occur. Acetic acid is commonly known as vinegar. Oxyquinoline and ricinoleic acid are added to help acetic acid work better. Common side effects include mild vaginal irritation/itching/burning.
The usual dose of Aci-Jel Vaginal Jelly is one applicatorful, administered intravaginally, morning and evening. Duration of treatment may be determined by the patient's response to therapy. Aci-Jel Vaginal Jelly may interact with birth control devices (e.g., condoms, diaphragms), spermicides, or vaginal products (e.g., douches, vaginal hormonal creams). Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Aci-Jel Vaginal Jelly should be used only when prescribed. It is unknown if this medication passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
