Could it be okay to use Monistat two months in a row?

I don't see a major problem with '2 rounds' of therapy but there might be something else to diagnose. ...Read more

I have a monistat that expired 9/2015 is it ok to still use one??

Should be OK: It's always safest to discard older drugs and use fresh ones, but most drugs are perfectly fine for a long time after their expiration dates and it should be true for Monistat. The date means that potency and side effects haven't been tested for longer times, but usually they are safe and effective much longer if not mishandled, e.g. not sitting on top of a hot radiator. ...Read more
