How Terazol 3 Affects PatientsTerconazole is a type of antifungal medicine meant to be used inside the vagina. It works by blocking the 14-alpha-demethylase enzyme which prevents the production of ergosterol, an important component of fungal membranes. When this component is depleted, it weakens the structure and functioning of the fungal membrane and stops its growth.
How Terazol 3 works in the bodyTerconazole works against fungi by disrupting the permeability of their cell membranes. It stops an enzyme called cytochrome P450 14-alpha-demethylase in susceptible fungi, which leads to a decrease in an important type of cholesterol called ergosterol. When this cholesterol is depleted, the structure and function of the fungal cell become weakened, preventing it from growing.

Terazol 3 Reviews: What are patients saying about Terazol 3?

5Patient Review
Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
Terazol 3 is the only yeast infection treatment that has ever worked for me. Almost immediately after using it, my symptoms were gone. I didn't experience any of the leakage that is common with other creams, which was great.
5Patient Review
Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
I was totally cured after just three nights, and I didn't even experience any leakage or side-effects. The insurance co-pay was less than buying something over the counter, so I would highly recommend this treatment.
3Patient Review
Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
I've used this medication twice, and both times I've had awful side effects. The first time I thought it was just a bad virus, but after the second round of symptoms last night I realized it was the medicine. Both times I experienced a fever over 102 degrees, chills, severe vomiting, headache, dizziness and difficulty breathing. Do not recommend.
2.3Patient Review
Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
I was misdiagnosed yet again. I don't know what it takes for a woman to get the right medication, but this wasn't it. usually if you clear up yeast, a bacterial infection follows. Both should be treated simultaneously. This medication is absolute garbage and I would never recommend it to anyone.
2Patient Review
Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
I can only assume that this medication kept my condition from getting worse. However, I was still incredibly itchy and uncomfortable throughout the duration of the treatment. Additionally, the itching spread to other areas outside of my vagina- which has never happened before. Overall, not a great experience.
1.3Patient Review
Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
The burning and itching was worse than the infection itself. It's also messy, difficult to use, and just generally unpleasant. I wouldn't recommend this treatment to anyone.

Not only was this treatment ineffective, I also had a severe reaction to it that has caused me pain for more than a week.

Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
It's been three days and I'm still incredibly itchy, especially at night. This medication isn't doing what it's supposed to.

Terazol 3 for Yeast Infection of Vagina and Vulva
I unfortunately experienced some pretty severe side effects from this treatment. I had chills and pain all over my body, which I had never felt before.

The suppository wouldn't stay in the applicator, so it was effectively useless.
