Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your doctor or as recommended in the package, even if you begin to feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed.

Avoid wearing tight-fitting, synthetic clothing (e.g., panty hose) that does not allow air circulation. Wear loose-fitting clothing made of cotton and other natural fibers until the infection is healed.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and apply only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use a double dose of this medication.

What happens if I overdose?

An overdose of terconazole vaginal is unlikely to occur. If you do suspect that a much larger than normal dose has been used or that terconazole vaginal has been ingested, contact an emergency room or a poison control center.
