Miconazole is an antifungal medication that’s used to treat vaginal yeast infections. This yeast infection treatment can help you feel better in as little as 24 hours. It works by damaging the outer layer of the fungus, which kills the fungus and keeps it from spreading. The brand version of this medicine is known as Monistat.

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 $22.67.

How do I use this medication?

This medicine is inserted into the vagina or on the skin around the vagina. Your licensed provider will explain how often to use this medicine and for how many days.

Your medical provider needs to know if you're pregnant or planning to become pregnant while using this medicine. Also, some forms of birth control may not work as well while you’re using this treatment, so talk to your health provider about safe sex. To be safe and prevent pregnancy (especially if your yeast infection is severe), consider using condoms or refraining from intercourse during your treatment.

If you miss a dose, simply apply it as soon as you remember. If it’s almost time for your next scheduled dose, just skip the missed dose.
