About Miconazole Nitrate
How does it work?
Miconazole damages the protective outer layer of fungi, which stops it from growing and spreading. It can work in as little as one dose, depending on the type of infection and how it’s applied.
What does it treat?
As a suppository or cream, Miconazole is very effective at treating yeast infections. It also comes in other forms to treat fungal skin infections like jock itch, athlete's foot and ringworm.
What forms does it come in?
This medication comes in several different forms depending on the type of infection. When used to treat vaginal yeast infections, it’s inserted into the vagina as a cream or suppository.
Please note that, at this time, other forms of Miconazole, aside from the suppository, are not listed among the available yeast infection treatment options on the Dr. B platform.
Miconazole Nitrate vs. Monistat
Miconazole Nitrate is the active ingredient found in Monistat and other antifungal medications. Monistat is a brand name, but you can also get this medicine as a generic. You can expect the same fast, effective relief from yeast infections regardless of whether you choose the brand or generic version.
The brand drug Monistat is not currently available on the Dr. B platform.
How much will it cost?
Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a yeast infection prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Miconazole Nitrate 200mg (3 suppositories) start at $52.92.
