It is indicated in the treatment and prevention of fungal infections of the oropharynx and gastrointestinal tract.

Theropeutic Class

Aural Anti-fungal preparations


Miconazole is a synthetic broad spectrum anti-fungal agent and acts against pathogenic fungi including yeast and dermatophytes and gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp). It acts by inhibiting membrane sterol synthesis and interfering with the permeability of the fungal cell membranes.

Oropharyngeal candidosis- Infants 4-24 month: 1.25 ml (1/4 measuring spoon) of gel, applied 4 times day after meals. Adult and children 2 years of age and older: 2.5 ml (1/2 measuring spoon) of gel, applied 4 times a day after meals. Gastrointestinal tract candidosis- Infants (4 month of age or above), children and adults who have difficulty swallowing tablets: 20 mg per kg body weight per day, in four divided doses. The daily dose should not exceed 250 mg (10 ml gel) four times day.

Administration of Symbiotrin 2% w/w

In case of localized lesions of the mouth, a small amount of gel may be applied 2-4 times a day directly to the affected area with a clean finger. For best results, Miconazole oral gel should be kept in contact with the affected area as long as possible. The treatment should be continued for at least a week after symptoms have disappeared. For oral candidosis, dental prosthesis should be removed at night and brushed with the gel.

Side Effects of Symbiotrin 2% w/w

Occasionally nausea and vomiting, diarrhea with long term use and rarely allergic reactions.

Pregnancy & Lactation

There is no information regarding the safety of Miconazole oral gel during pregnancy. So Miconazole oral gel should be avoided in pregnant women if possible or the potential hazards should be balanced against the possible benefits. As many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Miconazole is administered to a nursing woman.

Precautions & Warnings

If the concomitant use of Miconazole and anticoagulant is considered, the anti-coagulant effect should be monitored and titrated. Miconazole and phenytoin plasma level should also be monitored when used concomitantly. In infants and young children, caution must be taken to ensure that the gel does not obstruct the throat.

Storage Conditions

keep in a dry place away from light and heat. Keep out of the reach of children.
