Customer Question
I finished a 5...

I finished a 5 day treatment of metro gel and took a Diflucan on the 6th day. Itching and inflammation is getting worse and want to start a monistat. Can I start it this soon after the metrogel?

Doctor's Assistant: What over-the-counter and prescription medications are you currently taking?

I finished the vaginal metrogel Monday and took Diflucan yesterday

Hi! Yes, you can use Monistat at this time. There are no interactions with Metrogel.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
