What is SOLOSEC?

SOLOSEC® (secnidazole) 2g oral granules is a prescription medicine used to treat bacterial vaginosis in adult women. SOLOSEC is used to treat Trichomoniasis, a common sexually transmitted infection (STI), in adults. People should avoid having sex until they and their sex partners are treated with the same dose and at the same time, to prevent reinfection.

How should I take SOLOSEC?

SOLOSEC is a single-dose therapy for oral use. Use SOLOSEC by sprinkling an entire packet of SOLOSEC onto applesauce, yogurt, or pudding. The entire dose should be taken at once, and finished within 30 minutes. Avoid chewing or crunching the granules. SOLOSEC should not be taken by dissolving the granules in any liquid. Avoid drinking alcohol during treatment with SOLOSEC and for 2 days (48 hours) after you take SOLOSEC.
