Many Reasons to Choose MONISTAT® to Treat a Vaginal Yeast Infection

When it comes to treating a vaginal yeast infection, you need relief, and you need it fast. Reach for over the counter, prescription-strength MONISTAT®. MONISTAT® antifungal has a long term record of success — it has been in use for the treatment of vaginal yeast infections for over 40 years! Years ago, MONISTAT® used to be a treatment you could only get with a prescription from your healthcare professional. Now, doctors still recommend MONISTAT®, which you can now conveniently get over the counter at your local pharmacy. In fact, MONISTAT® relieves yeast infection symptoms 4x faster than the leading prescription pill and it is the #1 OTC yeast infection brand.

Because each MONISTAT® antifungal product is available without a prescription, women who have had previous yeast infections and are experiencing the same symptoms do not have to wait for a doctor’s appointment to get the relief they need. MONISTAT® is also a topical treatment—it’s placed directly into the vagina at the source of infection. (Oral pills need to be digested and absorbed into the blood stream before they start working.)

Three different treatment dosages

MONISTAT® is available in three different treatment dosage strengths. MONISTAT® 1 has the most concentrated dose, and is designed for a single application. On the other hand, MONISTAT® 3 (regular strength) and 7 (low dose) require more applications, at lower concentrations per dose. Regardless of which treatment you choose, most women do not experience relief from the infection in just one day. If you do not feel some relief within 3 days, or complete relief within 7 days, stop using the product and consult your healthcare professional.

Answer a few questions and find out what your symptoms mean.

Which MONISTAT® product is right for you?

Choose from MONISTAT® 1, 3, or 7. Regardless of which dose you choose, you should experience some symptom relief after 3 days and complete relief in 7 days.

  • Highest Dose MONISTAT® 1 may be the perfect solution for busy women with active lifestyles. This powerful single-dose product is available for use day or night and will stay in place during daily activities, even during exercise.
  • Regular Strength MONISTAT® 3 is a great option for women who want a less concentrated treatment that provides consistent treatment and relief at moderate dosage levels.
  • Low Dose MONISTAT® 7 is the original formula, with smaller doses of the active ingredient evenly distributed throughout the week at bedtime. Only 7-day topical yeast infection treatments are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the treatment of yeast infections in pregnant and diabetic women (consult your healthcare professional).

Just as effective as the leading prescription pill, and relieves symptoms 4X faster

Miconazole, the active ingredient in MONISTAT®, is just as effective at curing vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), or yeast infections, as fluconazole, the leading prescription pill.1 MONISTAT® products will even work on more strains of yeast, with less drug resistance and fewer drug interactions than the oral pill. In addition, in studies, MONISTAT® was found to relieve symptoms four times faster than the oral prescription pill because it works right at the site of the infection.*
