What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Clotrimazole 1% is used to treat vaginal yeast infections. Clotrimazole reduces vaginal burning, itching, and discharge that may occur with this condition. Clotrimazole 1% is an azole antifungal. It works by stopping the growth of yeast (fungus) that causes the infection. The vaginal product comes in 2 forms (a vaginal cream or tablet). Some products come with a skin cream to be applied to the area around the outside of the vagina. Ask your doctor before using Clotrimazole 1% for self-treatment if this is your first vaginal infection. Clotrimazole 1% only works for vaginal fungal infections. You may have a different type of infection (such as bacterial vaginosis) and may need a different medication. If you have fever, chills, flu-like symptoms, stomach/abdominal pain, or a bad-smelling vaginal discharge, do not use Clotrimazole 1%. Contact your doctor right away because these may be signs of a more serious infection.
How to Use Clotrimazole
If you are using the over-the-counter product to self-treat, read all directions on the product package before using Clotrimazole 1%. If you have any questions, consult your pharmacist. If your doctor has prescribed Clotrimazole 1%, use it as directed. Read the Patient Information Leaflet available with Clotrimazole 1%. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

Call your doctor if eye irritation persists. Dosage of Clotrimazole 1% is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Use the medication usually once daily at bedtime for 1 to 7 nights depending on the product used, or as directed by your doctor. If using the vaginal cream, follow the package instructions on how to fill/use the applicator with the cream. Lie on your back with your knees toward your chest. Insert one applicator filled with cream into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go. Slowly press the plunger of the applicator in to apply the cream. Make sure to insert the correct cream for use inside the vagina, not the skin cream for use on the outer genital area (vulva). If using the vaginal tablet, you may use either the applicator or your finger to insert the tablet. Unwrap the tablet before use. Follow the package instructions on how to fill the applicator with the vaginal tablet. Lie on your back with your knees toward your chest. Insert the tablet or the applicator into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go. Slowly press the plunger of the applicator to release the tablet. If you have itching/burning around the outside of the vagina (vulva), apply the skin cream to that area usually once or twice a day for no more than 7 days. If you are using a product with only the vaginal cream, you may apply a small amount of the vaginal cream to the area. Continue to use Clotrimazole 1% every day for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days or if your menstrual period starts. Stopping the medication too soon may allow the yeast infection to return. Do not use tampons, douches, spermicides or other vaginal products while using Clotrimazole 1%. Unscented sanitary napkins may be used for your menstrual period or to protect your clothing from leakage of the medication. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after 3 days or lasts more than 7 days. Tell your doctor if your infection returns within 2 months. You may need a different or additional medication to treat your condition.
