What is the most important information I should know about butoconazole vaginal (Gynazole)?

Use this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor, even during your menstrual period. Your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated.

Butoconazole contains mineral oil, which can weaken the latex rubber that condoms and diaphragms are made of. If you use either of these forms of birth control, they may not be as effective during your treatment with butoconazole. Use another form of birth control while you are using butoconazole and for at least 3 full days after your treatment has ended.

Avoid wearing tight-fitting, synthetic clothing such as nylon underwear or panty hose that does not allow air circulation. Wear loose-fitting clothing made of cotton and other natural fibers until your infection is healed.

Avoid using other vaginal creams or douches at the same time as butoconazole vaginal unless your doctor approves.

If the infection does not clear up after you have finished one course of therapy, or if your symptoms get worse, see your doctor. You may have another type of infection that butoconazole will not treat.
