VAGISTAT-1 (tioconazole) is indicated for the local treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis (moniliasis). As VAGISTAT-1 (tioconazole) has been shown to be effective only for candidal vulvovaginitis, the diagnosis should be confirmed by KOH smears and/or cultures. Other pathogens commonly associated with vulvovaginitis should be ruled out by appropriate methods.
Studies have shown that women taking oral contraceptives have a cure rate similar to those not taking such agents when treated with VAGISTAT-1 (tioconazole) .
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
VAGISTAT-1 (tioconazole) has been found to be effective as a single- dose treatment for vulvovaginal candidiasis. Using the prefilled applicator, insert one applicator- full intravaginally. Administration of VAGISTAT-1 (tioconazole) just prior to bedtime may be preferred.
VAGISTAT-1 (tioconazole) is supplied in a ready-to-use, prefilled, single-dose vaginal applicator (NDC 0087-0657-40). Each applicator-full will deliver approximately 4.6 grams of VAGISTAT-1 containing 65 mg of tioconazole per gram of ointment.
Storage: Store at controlled room temperature 15°-30° C (59°-86° F).
