Gyzol® M
Vaginal Ovules anti (protozoal,anaerobic bacteria)
  • Gyzol® M ovules is highly effective, as it contains miconazole nitrate and metronidazole .
  • Metronidazole has antiprotozoal activity against Entamoeba histolytica (intestinal & extra- intestinal forms), Trichomonas vaginalis, Giardia lamblia and Balantidium coli.
  • Metronidazole is also active against a wide range of obligate anaerobic bacteria, including Bacteroide spp.,Fusobacterium spp., and Clostridium spp., various anaerobic cocci, and Gardnerella vaginalis.
  • Miconazole nitrate inhibits the biosynthesis of ergosterol in fungi and changes the composition of other lipid components in the cell membrane, resulting in leakage of the essential intracellular constituents, and finally leads to fungal cell necrosis.  

Each vaginal ovules of Gyzol® M contains:

  • Miconazole Nitrate  150 mg        
  • Metronidazole       500 mg
  • Trichomonas vaginalis.
  • Pathogenic fungi located in the vagina.
  • Anaerobic bacterial infection.
  • Infections of candida alba.
  • Hypersensitivity to one or both ingredients of the product.
  • Due to the limited systemic availability after vaginal application, clinically relevant interactions occur very rarely.
  • In patients on oral anticoagulants, such as warfarin, caution should be considered and the anticoagulant effect should be monitored, because anticoagulants activity can be potentiated by product administrated intravaginally . 
  • Contact should be avoided between latex products (such as contraceptive diaphragms and condoms) and Gyzol® M vaginal ovules, since intravaginal preparations of Gyzol® M may damage them. 
  • The effects and side effects of some other drugs (e.g., oral hypoglycemic and phenytoin), when co-administered with Gyzol® M, can be increased and caution should be exercised
