CANDID CL CAPSULE belongs to the class of medications called ‘topical antibiotics‘ primarily used to treat vaginal infections, caused by bacteria (bacterial vaginosis), yeast infection (candidiasis) and parasitic infections (trichomoniasis). Bacterial vaginosis is caused by the change in the normal balance of vaginal bacteria. Vaginal yeast infection or Candidiasis is the infection of the vagina and tissues at the opening of the vagina (vulva). Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a parasite. Symptoms of a vaginal infection include itching, odour and abnormal heavy white discharge from the vagina.

CANDID CL CAPSULE comprises two medicines, namely: ‘Clindamycin‘ (antibiotic) and ‘Clotrimazole‘ (antifungal). Clindamycin belongs to lincomycin antibiotic group that works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis, required for the survival of the bacteria. As a result, it inhibits bacterial growth but does not kill them (bacteriostatic effect). On the other hand, Clotrimazole belongs to imidazoles antifungal group that kills fungi by causing holes in its cell membrane, thereby leaking all content out.

CANDID CL CAPSULE is available in the form of a vaginal tablet, suppository, gel and wash. These formulations are meant for vaginal use only. Common side effects of CANDID CL CAPSULE include burning sensation, irritation and itching in the vaginal area. However, these side effects are mild and temporary in nature and go off within sometimes after applying on the affected area.

Inform your doctor if you are allergic to any antibacterial, antifungal, clotrimazole, clindamycin or any of its components. It is essential to tell your doctor if you use any other azole antifungal or lincomycin antibiotics agents before using CANDID CL CAPSULE, otherwise using other antifungal or antibacterial may lead to overdose and toxicity. Let your doctor know if have any liver, kidney and gastrointestinal diseases (diarrhoea and colitis, an inflammation of the colon), allergic conditions (asthma, hay fever, eczema), diabetes and immune system problems (HIV-AIDS). Clotrimazole and mineral oil additive in CANDID CL CAPSULE may weaken rubber product’s activities of contraceptive devices latex condoms, diaphragms and cervical caps. Sometimes, antibiotic medications can cause antibiotic resistance. In such cases, your doctor may prescribe other antibiotics you are not resistant to.
