Yeast Infection Treatment
Feel Better Faster with MONISTAT®
MONISTAT® may be a better choice than Diflucan® (fluconazole), the leading prescription pill, because:
- MONISTAT® relieves yeast infection symptoms 4 times faster
- MONISTAT® cures more of the most common types of yeast infections1,2
- MONISTAT® starts curing right at the site of infection
- Your health insurance company may now require that you use over-the-counter miconazole/MONISTAT® before a prescription pill
The Rx pill may not be right for you
Fluconazole has safety risks for some women:
- Are you pregnant or trying to become pregnant? A 2016 study reported that even 1 fluconazole pill may increase miscarriage risk significantly.3 The FDA recommends discussing treatment options other than fluconazole with a healthcare professional4
— MONISTAT® 7 meets CDC Treatment Guidelines for pregnant women5*
- Do you have diabetes? For women who take certain diabetes medicines (sulfonylureas), fluconazole may increase the risk of serious hypoglycemic episodes.6,7 Also, women with diabetes are more likely to have yeast infection types that fluconazole does not treat8,9
— MONISTAT® 7 is appropriate for many women with diabetes5
*For vaginal yeast infections in pregnant women, 2015 CDC Treatment Guidelines recommend use of a 7-day topical azole therapy. If you are pregnant, consult your healthcare professional before using any yeast infection drug.
