Within one half hour of using vandazole I experienced hives, dizziness, shortness of breath and the next morning i was still short of breath and felt like I was going to faint. The shortness of breath slowly disappeared and I was fine for the rest of the day. When I went to sleep last night I woke up at 1:00 a.m. Short of breath again but the other effects were gone.

Thinking I still had remnants of the yeast infection, I used another monistat 1. Then the next day I noticed I started spotting.

I already had my period the beginning of the month, and this isn't like my normal period. My pap was normal, and I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else? ## Hi Lucy - It sounds like you could be experiencing one of the possible side effects of this medication. It is highly recommended that you report this to your prescribing physician ASAP.

The expiration date on the Vandazole packaging says 02/2009. Can I still use it since its only been 3 months after? ## When It comes to any medication, I think it may be a good idea to start fresh with a new prescription, and not worry about whether or not the drug works like it's supposed to due to the expiration. The medication may be fine, however only you and your doctor can assess what and when it may be alright for you to take Vandazole.
