Last SPC review

During concomitant use of the ointment component of Nyvigan and condoms or diaphragms, the excipient paraffin can reduce the tear resistance and thereby impair the reliability of these products. If hypersensitivity should occur, then use of the medicine should be discontinued and a suitable treatment should be carried out.

Please carefully study the information contained in the leaflet or, as applicable, on the outer packaging. Please consult a physician before usage.
