About terconazole

Terconazole 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.

Terconazole can treat vaginal yeast infections. Terconazole is available only by prescription and is now available in a generic formulation. It was previously available as a brand name Terazol but that has been discontinued in the United States.

Terconazole may be prescribed as a vaginal cream or a vaginal suppository. 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 terconazole, 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.

Terconazole uses

The only FDA-approved use for terconazole is to treat vaginal yeast infections. Your online primary care doctor will discuss with you whether terconazole or another treatment is best for your condition. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • Yeast infections

    Terconazole vaginal cream is FDA-approved to treat vaginal yeast infections.

Terconazole side effects

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

    Common side effects of terconazole 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

    • New severe skin rashes

    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 terconazole

Your online doctor and your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your terconazole 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 a 3-day and 7-day treatment course, so be sure to follow the specific instructions on your prescription. Never take terconazole vaginal cream or suppository by mouth. It is only for use in your vagina.

Terconazole 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 terconazole

Terconazole has no known 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 or suppository.

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 terconazole

If your online board-certified primary care doctor 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:
