Hi, thanks for posting on healthcare magic.

Let me help you. The vaginal capsules containing clindamycin and clotrimazole come in packs of 1 or 3 or 6 or 7. So if you have got a 6 capsule pack use them for 6 days(nights) - one per night. Just before going to bed insert one capsule into the vagina. It will melt inside, so may be a liitle messy and that is why it is better to use at bedtime.

I hope i have answered your query. If you would like more clarification kindly give me more details like your age, complaints etc etc

Best wishes.
