How much and how often should you use this medicine?
DOSAGE AND MODE OF ADMINISTRATION
Insert one vaginal suppository into the vagina for 7 nights.
In recurrent cases, or when the vaginitis has been resistant to other treatments use one vaginal suppository for 14 nights.
Tri-V is contraindicated in patients hypersensitive to Miconazole, Metronidazole, or Lidocaine or their derivatives, during the first trimester of pregnancy, in cases of porphyria, epilepsy and severe liver function disorders.
Warning and Precautions
TRI-V vaginal suppositories should not be used in young people (girls) who are not sexually mature. Sexual partners of patients with Trichomonas vaginalis should be treated at the same time. Patients should be warned not to take alcohol during the therapy and for 3 days after the end of a course of treatment, because of the possibility of disulfram-like reactions.
The active ingredients can have a compromised action on fetus and newborn growth, hence people who need to administer the drug should avoid pregnancy with a proper birth control method.
The incidence of systemic side effects is very rare since after intravaginal administration of Metronidazole is very low. Miconazole nitrate can cause vaginal irritation (burning, itching). These symptoms may be prevented with the local anesthetic action of lidocaine.
