Canesoral Oral Capsule is an effective single dose (one capsule) treatment for vaginal thrush. The Oral treatment offers a discreet and convenient option for people ‘on the go’. It may also be a preferred option when you have your period.

For vaginal thrush in adults, only a single dose (1 capsule) of Canesoral is needed. Canesoral can be taken with or without food.

Do not take Canesoral if you are allergic to medicines containing:

  • fluconazole
  • other azole antifungals such as miconazole (eg. Daktarin), ketoconazole (eg. Nizoral), clotrimazole (eg. Canesten, Clonea), itraconazole (Sporanox)
  • any of the ingredients listed.

Some of the symptoms of an allergic reaction may include skin rash, itching or hives; swelling of the face, lips or tongue which may cause difficulty in swallowing or breathing; wheezing or shortness of breath.

Do not take Canesoral if you are taking cisapride (Prepulsid), a medicine used to treat stomach problems. Combining Canesoral with cisapride may cause serious side effects such as an abnormal heart rhythm.

Do not take Canesoral if you are pregnant; suspect you may be pregnant or if you may become pregnant during treatment. Canesoral should not be used during pregnancy as it may affect your developing baby.

Do not take Canesoral if you are breastfeeding. Canesoral passes into breast milk and may affect your baby.
