Drug Description


Canesten 1-Day Vaginal Combipak is a vaginal medication used to treat vaginal yeast infections. The combipak includes a slim clotrimazole tablet and an external cream to provide relief from itching and burning. 

Clotrimazole belongs to the class of medications called antifungals. Clotrimazole works by killing the overgrowth of yeast that is causing the infection. 

Use and Dosage 

Canesten 1 Day Vaginal Combipak contains clotrimazole, which is an antifungal medication. The clotrimazole tablet is inserted into the vagina, where it works to eliminate the yeast causing the infection. The external cream can be applied to the external genital area to relieve itching and burning. 

Here are general instructions on how to use Canesten 1 Day Vaginal Combipak: 

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling the ovules. 
  2. Lie down on your back with your knees bent or stand with your knees slightly bent. You can use a mirror to help guide the insertion. 
  3. Gently insert the ovule into your vagina as far as it will comfortably go using the applicator provided with the medication. Some medications may not have an applicator and can be inserted directly with your finger. 
  4. Once the ovule is inside the vagina, lie down for a few minutes to prevent it from coming out. 
  5. The external cream can be applied as needed to the affected areas outside the vagina. 
  6. Wash your hands again with soap and water after use. 
  7. Use the medication preferably at bedtime. 

If you miss a dose, use it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
