How to use Miconazole Tablet:
Before applying the tablet,
1. Locate the area on the upper gum, just above either the left or the right incisor. The incisor tooth is the tooth just to the right or left of your two front teeth.
2. Take one miconazole tablet out of the bottle. Miconazole is round on one side and flat on the other side. The tablet is marked with an “L” on the flat side.
Applying the miconazole tablet,
3. Place the flat side of the miconazole tablet on your dry fingertip. Gently push the rounded side of the tablet against your upper gum. Push the miconazole tablet up as high as it will go on your gum. The flat side will be facing the inside of your lip.
4. Hold the miconazole tablet in place by applying a slight pressure with your finger on the outside of your upper lip for 30 seconds. This will make the tablet stick to your gum.
5. Leave the tablet in place until it dissolves.
6. Before applying your next dose, be sure to clear away any remaining miconazole tablet material.
- Always use miconazole exactly as your doctor tells you. Miconazole is usually applied in the morning after you brush your teeth.
- Miconazole is placed 1 time each day to your upper gum for 14 days.
- You may eat and drink while using miconazole.
- Do not crush, chew or swallow miconazole.
- You should change where you place miconazole, between the left and right side of your upper gum with each use.
- It is okay if miconazole sticks to your cheek, the inside of your lip or your gum. If miconazole does not stick or falls off of your gum within the first 6 hours, re-apply it. If it still does not stick, replace it with a new tablet.
- If you swallow miconazole within the first 6 hours of placing, drink a glass of water and place a new miconazole to your gum.
- If miconazole falls off or is swallowed after it was in place for 6 hours or more, do not apply a new miconazole. Just place your next dose at your regular time.
- Check to see if miconazole is still in place after you brush your teeth, rinse your mouth, eat, or drink.
