Canesten Oral & Cream Duo

Canesten Oral & Cream Duo
is a complete and convenient treatment for vaginal or penile thrush, containing a single dose treatment to clear the infection and a cream to provide fast, effective relief from the external symptoms.

Both products contain antifungal agents to fight the cause of infections such as thrush:
  • Canesten Oral Capsule: contains fluconazole 150mg.
  • Canesten Thrush Cream: contains clotrimazole 2%.
Canesten Oral & Cream Duo should only be used if you have been previously diagnosed by your doctor as having thrush.
  • Canesten Oral Capsule: Swallow whole with a glass of water (with or without food).
  • Canesten Thrush Cream: Apply thinly and evenly to the area around the entrance of the vagina, 2 or 3 times a day and smooth in gently. It should be used until symptoms of the infections disappear.
The symptoms of thrush should disappear within two days of treatment. If no improvement is seen after seven days, you must tell your doctor. If the infection returns after seven days another capsule may be taken but if you have more than two infections within six months you should see your doctor.

Some women suffer from recurrent attacks of thrush. To reduce the frequency of these attacks, the sexual partner's penis can be treated with this cream to prevent re-infection, even if they have no symptoms of thrush. If your sexual partner is treated with this cream, the cream should be applied to the end of the penis 2 or 3 times a day for up to two weeks.
Canesten Oral Capsule
  • Active Ingredient: Fluconazole 150mg.
  • Other Ingredients: Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Lactose Monohydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Maize Starch and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. The capsule shell contains Brilliant Blue FCF (E133), Titanium Dioxide (E171) and Gelatine. The printing ink contains Shellac, Black Iron Oxide (E172) and Propylene Glycol.
Canesten Thrush Cream
  • Active Ingredient: Clotrimazole 2% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Benzyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetyl Palmitate, Cetostearyl Alcohol, Octyldodecanol and Purified Water.
  • The capsule contains lactose monohydrate, so if you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars contact your doctor before taking this medicinal product.
  • The cream contains cetostearyl alcohol which may cause local skin irritation (e.g. rash, itching or redness).
  • As with other creams, this product may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, such as condoms or diaphragms. Consequently, you should use alternative precautions for at least five days after using this product.
  • Canesten Oral Capsule may cause dizziness. If dizziness occurs after taking your capsule, you should not drive or use machines.
Do not use Canesten Oral & Cream Duo:
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to fluconazole, clotrimazole or any of the other ingredients, including cetostearyl alcohol.
  • If you are taking the antihistamine terfenadine, the medicine cisapride or an ergot-derivative (e.g. ergotamine used for migraine).
  • If you are pregnant, trying for a baby or breastfeeding.
Before using Canesten Oral & Cream Duo, you should see your doctor if:
