About Terazol (terconazole) 

Terazol is considered an azole antifungal agent, which functions by stopping the growth of fungi that cause the infection. Like other azole antifungal agents, this medication is ineffective against bacterial and viral infections.

Some conditions that Terazol is known to treat include vaginal yeast infections. Terazol is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as terconazole, as well as under different brand names.

Terazol may be prescribed as a vaginal cream. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Terazol, be sure to complete the full course of the antifungal unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the antifungal may not fully treat your fungal infection. 

Terazol uses

There are many FDA-approved uses for Terazol, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online clinician may prescribe it for any of the following common reasons. It’s also possible that your health care provider may prescribe it for other reasons not listed here. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • Yeast infections

    Terazol vaginal cream is FDA-approved to treat vaginal yeast infections. Terconazole vaginal cream can also help reduce vaginal burning, itching, and discharge that may occur with vaginal yeast infections.

Terazol side effects

  • The side effects associated with taking Terazol are typically mild.

    Common side effects of Terazol include increased vaginal burning, itching and pain, headaches, and menstrual cramps.

    Tell your doctor if you experience any rare but serious side effects, including fever, chills, foul-smelling discharge, and stomach or abdominal pain.

    Other side effects are less common but might be more severe. Unlikely but serious effects could include:

    • New or worsening yeast infection symptoms

    • Fever, chills, or flu-like symptoms

    • Severe vaginal irritation

    • Allergic reactions

    You should call your doctor if you notice any of these side effects, or if you develop any other new or concerning symptoms. Ask your doctor for medical advice before using terconazole in children under 12.

How to take Terazol

Your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your Terazol prescription. Be sure to read your prescription label and follow the instructions. Call your doctor or pharmacy if you have any questions.

Terconazole can come in different forms and doses, including Terazol 3 and Terazol 7, so be sure to follow the specific instructions on your prescription. Avoid taking Terazol vaginal cream by mouth. It is only for use in your vagina.

Terazol 3 is available in both cream form and as a vaginal suppository. Each form comes with an applicator for measuring and inserting the medicine. Follow your doctor's instructions closely and slowly press down on the vaginal applicator to measure your medicine.

What to avoid while taking Terazol

Terazol has few possible drug interactions. It's unlikely that any oral medication you take will cause an interaction with terconazole. Don’t change what you are taking without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. That includes other medications or supplements, as well as over-the-counter drugs.

Avoid having sexual intercourse during treatment unless your doctor advises you otherwise. In addition, avoid using tampons, vaginal douches, or other vaginal products while using terconazole vaginal cream.

Avoid wearing tight jeans, synthetic clothing such as nylon underwear, a wet bathing suit, and other materials that don't allow air circulation. Instead, opt for loose-fitting clothing, such as cotton underwear and other natural fibers, until your symptoms disappear. Don't stop using terconazole vaginal cream if your menstrual period starts during treatment.

Medication alternatives to Terazol

If your healthcare provider prefers to put you on another treatment altogether, they may suggest another vaginal cream or an anti-fungal in another drug class. Here are some common doctor-recommended alternatives based on your health issue:
