How to use DAKTARIN Oral Gel

How to use it

Opening Instructions:

  1. Unscrew the cap.
  2. Reverse the cap and push it firmly into the neck of the tube to fully puncture the safety seal.

Note: Use the spoon provided for accurate measurements.

Follow these steps to ensure you use Daktarin Oral Gel properly.

After you have finished eating, drop the measured amount of gel on to the tongue and keep it in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing. The gel is sticky to make sure it stays in the mouth as long as possible.

If you are giving the gel to infants and young children the measured dose should be given in small amounts placed in the front of the mouth. Do not give the whole amount at once. Do not put the gel in the back of the mouth. This is to make sure that the throat does not become blocked by the gel.

How much to use

Usual dose:

Unless otherwise directed by your doctor or pharmacist, use the following quantities of Daktarin Oral Gel:

Adults and children 2 years of age and older: Half (1/2) a spoonful four times a day.

Infants (6-24 months): One quarter (1/4) of a spoonful four times a day.

How long to use it

Continue treatment for at least a week after symptoms have disappeared. This is to ensure that the treatment is complete.

If you forget to use it

If you forget to use Daktarin Oral Gel, do so as soon as you remember, and then go back to using it as you would normally.

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose when you are meant to.

Do not take a double dose to make up for the one you missed.

If you have problems remembering when to take your medicine, ask your pharmacist for some hints.

If you use too much (overdose)

If you have swallowed too much Daktarin Oral Gel, contact your doctor or pharmacist or the Poisons Information Centre who will advise you what to do.

You can contact the Poisons Information Centre by dialling:

  • Australia: 13 11 26
  • New Zealand: 0800 POISON or 0800 764 766

You may experience nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. If you do, you may need to take a preparation to replace the water and minerals, which are lost during vomiting and diarrhoea.

While you are using DAKTARIN Oral Gel

Things you must do

  • Wash and dry the measuring spoon after use.
  • If you wear dentures, as well as applying Daktarin Oral Gel to the mouth, apply a thin layer of the Gel to the dentures in the evening and leave it on overnight. Make sure you wash your dentures before putting them back in, in the morning.
  • Avoid contact with eyes.

Things you must not do

Do not use this medicine to treat any other complaints unless your doctor tells you to.

Do not give it to anyone else, even if their condition seems similar to yours.

Thing to be careful of

Be careful driving or operating machinery until you know how Daktarin Oral Gel affects you. It may cause difficulty in focusing in some people.

Side Effects

All medicines can have side effects. Sometimes they are serious, most of the time they are not. You may need medical treatment if you get some side effects.

Daktarin Oral Gel may have some unwanted side effects in a few people, even though it is usually well tolerated at the recommended dose.

Do not be alarmed by this list of possible side effects. You may not experience any of them.

Tell your doctor if any of the following symptoms happen and they worry you:

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice anything that is making you feel unwell. Other side effects not listed above may also occur in some people.

Storage

  • Keep your Daktarin Oral Gel in a cool dry place where the temperature stays below 30°C.
  • Do not store it, or any other medicine in the bathroom or near a sink.
Heat and dampness can destroy some medicines.
  • Keep it where young children cannot reach it.
A locked cupboard at least one and a half metres above the ground is a good place to store medicines.
  • Medicines cannot be stored indefinitely. Do not use Daktarin Oral Gel beyond the date (month and year) printed on the pack after the letters "EXP", even if it has been stored properly.

Disposal
