ATC code:
Pharmacological action
This is a combination formulation for intravaginal use and the effectiveness is based on the presence of two
components in the composition: metronidazole and clotrimazole.
Metronidazole has high activity against protozoa: Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia lamblia, Trichomonas
as well as gram-negative anaerobes: Bacteroides fragilis, Fusobacterium spp., Prevotella (P.bivia,
P.buccae, P.disiens), Gardnerella vaginalis
and some gram-positive micro-organisms: Clostridium
perfringens, Clostridium difficile, Peptococcus spp., Peptostreptococcus spp.

Clotrimazole is an imidazole derivative. It has fungicidal and bactericidal action. It retards the biosynthesis of
ergosterol, which regulates the permeability of the cellular wall in micro-organisms. The drug has high activity
against the following fungi: Blastomyces dermatitidis, Candida spp., Coccidioides immitis, Cryptococcus
dermatophytes: Histoplasma capsulatum, Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, Sporothrix schenckii;
protozoa: Trichomonas vaginalis; gram-positive bacteria: Escherichia coli, Streptococcus spp.,
Staphylococcus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae.
After intravaginal application, metronidazole is absorbed systemically. The relative bioavailability of vaginal
gel is double that of a single dose of vaginal tablets of metronidazole. The drug passes into breast milk and a
majority of tissues; it passes through the haematoencephalic barrier and the placenta. The absorbed
metronidazole passes through the placenta and the hematoencephalic barrier. The time to reach maximum
concentration is 6-12 hours. Binding with plasma proteins is less than 20%. About 60-80% of the dose
having systemic action is excreted by the kidneys, while 6-15% of the dose having systemic action is
excreted by the intestines.


Bacterial vaginosis of different etiologies confirmed through clinical and micro-biological analyses; candidial
vulvitis and vulvovaginitis, urogenital trichomoniasis.

Hypersensitivity to components of the formulation;
Leucopoenia (including history of leucopoenia);
Organic disorders of the central nervous system (including epilepsy);
Hepatic insufficiency;
1st trimester of pregnancy.
Drug interaction
The drug induces intolerance for ethanol, like disulfiram.
It potentiates the action of indirect anticoagulants; not recommended in combination with non-depolarising
myorelaxants (vecuronium).
Simultaneous use with lithium formulations may increase the plasma concentration of lithium.
Phenobarbital accelerates metabolism of metronidazole through induction of microsomal enzymes in the
liver; cimetidine retards metabolism of the drug.
Amphotericin B, nystatin and natamycin reduce the efficacy of clotrimazole when used concurrently.
Avoid contact with the eyes.

The drug can be used in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy if strictly indicated and only under
