Local reactions including irritation and burning may occur. Contact allergic dermatitis has been reported. In the case of systemic absorption,

lower abdominal cramps, increase in urinary frequency or skin rash may occur. This vaginal tablet should not be administered to pregnant women

during the first trimester, since the safety in this regard has not been established. During pregnancy the vaginal tablet 500 mg should be inserted

In isolated cases there may be generalised hypersensitivity reactions of varying degrees of severity. These reactions may affect the skin (e.g. itching, redness), breathing (shortness of breath), the circulation (e.g. a drop in blood pressure requiring treatment or even impaired consciousness) or the gastrointestinal tract (e.g.nausea, diarrhoea).

Drug interaction:

  •  When used together, this product may cause damage to latex contraceptives. Consequently, the effectiveness of such contraceptives may be reduced. Patients should be advised to use alternative precautions for at least five days after using this product.
  • Concomitant medication with vaginal clotrimazole and oral tacrolimus (FK-506; immunosuppressant) might lead to increased tacrolimus plasma levels and similarly with sirolimus. Patients should thus be closely monitored for signs and symptoms of tacrolimus or sirolimus overdosage, if necessary by determination of the respective plasma levels.


There are limited amount of data from the use of clotrimazole in pregnant women. Clotrimazole can be used during pregnancy, but only under the supervision of a physician or midwife.
