Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets are effective against practically all pathogens that can cause fungal infections in the vagina. It is also effective against some bacteria and against certain protozoa (trichomonas). The active ingredient clotrimazole contained in Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets inhibits the growth of the fungi or kills them.
Clotrimazole acts on the mucosal surface, is quickly absorbed into the mucosa, and also acts in the deeper layers of the mucosa.
Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets are colorless and odorless and generally well tolerated.

Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets are used in:

  • infectious discharge caused by fungi (Candida),
  • Inflammation of the vagina caused by fungi (mostly Candida species) and/or trichomonads (certain protozoa),
  • Renewed infection with an existing initial infection (so-called superinfection) with bacteria that are sensitive to the active ingredient clotrimazole contained in Candibene

Your doctor may prescribe you an additional antibiotic to reliably eliminate Trichomonas vaginalis infections.

If you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 3 days, contact your doctor.

Contraindications

Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets must not be used if you are allergic to clotrimazole or any of the other ingredients of Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets listed in section 6.

interactions

Other medicines and Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets Tell
your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking/using, have recently taken/used or might take/use any other medicines.

Clotrimazole reduces the effectiveness of certain topical antibiotics (amphotericin and other polyene antibiotics such as nystatin, natamycin).

If you are taking tacrolimus or sirolimus (medicines used to treat organ transplant rejection or certain skin conditions), tell your doctor straight away.

If clotrimazole is used topically (externally) as intended, no other interactions are known and are not to be expected due to the low level of absorption of the active substance in the bloodstream.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before using this medicine.
Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets may only be used during pregnancy, especially in the first three months of pregnancy, on the doctor's decision.

If treatment with Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets is absolutely necessary during pregnancy, it may only be carried out as directed by the doctor and without an applicator.

application

Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Unless otherwise prescribed by the doctor, the usual dose is:
Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets are inserted deep into the vagina once a day – in the evening – for 3 consecutive days using the applicator.

Note: The vaginal tablets need moisture to fully dissolve. If the vagina is dry, the vaginal tablet may not dissolve completely. This can be recognized by the fact that crumbly parts of the tablet are excreted. To prevent this, it is important to insert the tablet as deeply as possible, ideally before going to bed.
If the partner's glans and foreskin are diagnosed to be inflamed by yeast fungi, they must also be treated locally with suitable preparations.

Type of application
Insert Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets as deeply as possible into the vagina using the applicator while lying on your back with your legs slightly drawn up (see illustration).
During pregnancy, the vaginal tablets are used without an applicator (see figure).

Application of Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets with applicator:

  • The vaginal tablet is removed from the aluminum packaging and placed in the applicator mold.
  • The applicator with the vaginal tablet is then inserted as deeply as possible into the vagina. The vaginal tablet is placed in the vagina by carefully pressing the inner rod A as far as it will go.
  • After use, the applicator is removed from the vagina and carefully cleaned with warm water. For cleaning, the inner rod A is pulled completely out of the applicator B. Be careful when cleaning: do not use boiling water!

Using Candibene 200 mg vaginal tablets without an applicator:
The vaginal tablet can also be inserted into the vagina by hand.
Please wash your hands thoroughly before and after use.

Duration of use
In general, a 3-day treatment is sufficient for a vaginal inflammation - especially caused by fungi. A second treatment over 3 days can be given if necessary, however recurrent infections may indicate an underlying condition. If symptoms reappear within 2 months, additional evaluation must be considered. In general, the symptoms of vaginal mycosis (such as itching, discharge, burning) decrease significantly within the first four days after starting treatment.
