Lotrimin Warnings and Dangers
Lotrimin, an antifungal agent, is used for skin infections such as athlete's foot and jock itch and for vaginal yeast infections.
Lotrimin is a brand name for the generic drug Miconazole.
Lotrimin vaginal cream and suppositories are for use only in the vagina. These products are not to be taken by mouth. The vaginal suppositories are inserted, one per dose, in an applicator. Alternatively, the tube containing the vaginal cream is screwed onto the end of a special applicator tube, and the tube is then squeezed to fill the applicator. The patient then lies on her back with bent knees, inserts the applicator containing either the suppository or cream so that the tip of the applicator is high in the vagina, and then pushes the plunger in to deposit the suppository or cream into the vagina. The applicator should be washed with warm soap and water after each use.
Lotrimin usually is used once daily at bedtime. The 200 mg suppositories (Monistat 3) are inserted once nightly for 3 nights. The100 mg suppositories (Monistat-7) and intravaginal cream are inserted once nightly for 7 nights. The 1200 mg formulation (Monistat 1) is applied once for one night.
For fungal skin infections, the topical cream is applied as a thin layer to cover the affected skin and surrounding area, usually twice daily. The hands should be washed before and after application.
Lotrimin may cause the following side effects:
- Burning at the site of application
- Irritation of the skin or vagina
- Stomach pain
- Foul-smelling vaginal discharge
- Loss of appetite
There is very limited information on the use of Lotrimin during pregnancy. The physician must weigh the potential benefits against possible but unknown risks to the fetus.
It is not known if Lotrimin is secreted in breast milk in amounts that can affect the infant.
Tell your doctor about all the medicines you use (both prescription and nonprescription). Inform your doctor if you are taking:
