Cleocin® Vaginal Ovules
(clindamycin phosphate vaginal suppositories)

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

How do I use CLEOCIN Vaginal Ovules?

For vaginal use only. Do not take by mouth.

Use one CLEOCIN Vaginal Ovule daily, preferably at bedtime, for 3 days in a row.

Do not use this product if the foiled pouches containing vaginal ovules are torn, opened, or incompletely sealed.

Read the full directions below before using.

Insertion with the applicator:

1.
Remove the vaginal ovule from its packaging (See Figure 1).
Figure 1
2.
Pull back the plunger about an inch and place the vaginal ovule in the wider end of the applicator barrel (See Figure 2).
Figure 2
3.
Hold the applicator as shown and gently insert the end of the applicator into the vagina as far as it will go comfortably. This can be done while lying on your back with your knees bent (as shown in Figure 3), or while standing with your feet apart and your knees bent.
Figure 3
4.
While holding the barrel of the applicator in place, push the plunger in until it stops to release the vaginal ovule. Remove the applicator from the vagina.
5.
Clean the applicator after each use. Pull the two pieces apart and wash them with soap and warm water. Rinse well and dry. Put the two pieces back together and store in a clean, dry place.
6.
Once inside the vagina, the ovule melts. Lie down as soon as possible. This will keep leakage to a minimum.

Repeat steps 1 through 6, before bedtime, for the next 2 days.

Insertion without the applicator:

  1. Remove the vaginal ovule from its packaging (See Figure 1).
  2. Holding the ovule with your thumb and a finger, insert it into the vagina.
  3. Using your finger, gently push the ovule into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go.
  4. Once inside the vagina, the ovule melts. Lie down as soon as possible. This will keep leakage to a minimum.
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4, before bedtime, for the next 2 days.
