OTHER COMMENTS
Miconazole buccal tablets should be applied with dry hands each morning after brushing teeth. The tablets should be placed against the upper gum, above the incisor tooth, and held in place with slight pressure over the upper lip for 30 seconds to ensure adhesion. Once in place, the buccal tablet stays in position and gradually dissolves. Subsequent applications should be made to alternate sides of the mouth. Any remaining tablet material should be cleared away before the next tablet is applied.
Miconazole buccal tablets should not be crushed, chewed, or swallowed. Food and drink can be taken normally when the buccal tablet is in place but chewing gum should be avoided.
If the miconazole buccal tablet does not adhere or falls off within the first 6 hours, the same tablet should be repositioned at once; however, if the tablet still does not adhere, a new tablet should be used. If the buccal tablet is swallowed within the first 6 hours, the patient should drink a glass of water and a new tablet should be applied only once. If the buccal tablet falls off or is swallowed after it was in place for at least 6 hours, a new tablet should not be applied until the next scheduled dose.
