use:
The total dose should not be exceeded without consulting a doctor or pharmacist.

Type of application?
Insert the medicine into the vagina. Moisten it with water beforehand.

Duration of use?
The drug should not be used for more than 9 days. If the symptoms persist, you should see your doctor.

overdose?
There are no known overdose symptoms. If in doubt consult your doctor.

In general, pay attention to a conscientious dosage, especially for infants, small children and the elderly. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist about any effects or precautions.

A dosage prescribed by the doctor may deviate from the information on the package leaflet. Therefore, since the doctor adjusts them individually, you should use the medicine according to his instructions.

Mode of action:
How does the ingredient in the drug work?

The anti-inflammatory effect of Policresulen is based on two mechanisms: on the one hand, the active ingredient kills bacteria and, on the other hand, damaged tissue is replaced by healthy tissue. This supports the wound healing of the affected tissue.

Contraindications:
What speaks against an application?

Always:
- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients

Under certain circumstances - talk to your doctor or pharmacist about this:
- Women after the menopause

Which age group should be considered?
- Children and adolescents under the age of 18: The medicine should not normally be used in this age group.

What about pregnancy and lactation?
- Pregnancy: consult your doctor. Various considerations play a role in whether and how the drug can be used during pregnancy.
- Breast-feeding: consult your doctor or pharmacist. He will examine your particular starting position and advise you accordingly as to whether and how you can continue breastfeeding.

If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use entails in the event of a contraindication.

Side effects:
What side effects can occur?

- Irritation of the mucous membranes, such as:
- Slight burning sensation on the mucous membranes
- Itching
- Hives
- Infections of the vagina with other pathogens against which the drug is ineffective (such as yeast fungi)
- Dryness of the vagina

The shedding of dead tissue is often seen as a discharge of shreds of mucous membrane and is a sign of the therapeutic effect.

If you notice any discomfort or changes during treatment, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

For the information at this point, side effects are primarily taken into account that occur in at least one in 1,000 patients treated.

Important information:
What should you consider?
- Be careful if you are allergic to the solvent polyethylene glycol (E number E 431)!
- Be careful if you are allergic to complexing agents (e.g. EDTA and triethylenetetramine)!
- There may be medicines with which interactions occur. You should therefore generally tell your doctor or pharmacist about any other medicine you are already using before starting treatment with a new medicine. This also applies to medicines that you buy yourself, use only occasionally or have been using for some time.

 

For medicines: Read the leaflet on the risks and side effects and ask your doctor or pharmacist.
