I took a medicine orally when it was to be inserted vaginally, is it a problem?
Q: I was suggested to take colposeptine since I was suffering from vaginal itching and pain. I took the medicine orally. After 2 days I realised that the medicine had to be inserted into the vagina directly. Will this lead to any problem?
A:Colposeptine is the brand name of a product that contains two medicines: chloroquinadol and promestriene. Both are supposed to be applied topically in the vagina. However, no adverse reactions are likely if taken by mouth by mistake.
