Q. How should I use vaginal tablets? When is vaginal cream preferred over vaginal tablets?

The vaginal tablets must be inserted as deeply as possible in to the vagina in the evening. Insertion is best achieved when lying back with the legs slightly drawn up. Vaginal tablets need moisture in the vagina to dissolve completely, otherwise undissolved pieces of the tablet might crumble out of the vagina. To prevent this it is important to insert the medication as deeply as possible into the vagina at bedtime. If the vaginal tablet not dissolve completely within one night, use of vaginal cream should be considered.
