What is acetic acid vaginal?

Acetic acid is a natural acidic substance that is normally found in vinegar.

Acetic acid vaginal (for use in the vagina) is used to increase the acidity inside the vaginal canal.

Acetic acid vaginal may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

How should I use acetic acid vaginal?

Use exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Do not take by mouth. Acetic acid vaginal is for use only in the vagina.

Acetic acid vaginal is most commonly used every day, in the morning and in the evening.

Wash your hands before and after using vaginal medication.

Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets about how to insert the medicine.

Use this medicine only with the applicator provided.

If the applicator will be reused, take it apart and wash it with warm water and mild soap, then dry it completely.

Vaginal solution is usually packaged in single-use disposable bottles and applicator tips.

Do not reuse a disposable douche applicator or bottle.

You can use a sanitary napkin to prevent the medicine from staining your clothing, but do not use a tampon.

Your doctor may also prescribe antibiotic or antifungal medicine to treat your vaginal condition. Keep using all recommended medications for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotic or antifungal medication.

Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I overdose?
