Gynol II Discontinued

Janessen-Cilag has discontinued Gynol II®, a spermicidal jelly containing nonoxinol '9'.

Ortho-creme contains the same active ingredient but it is a cream base rather than a jelly. The tube size is also slightly smaller at 70g compared to 81g in Gynol II.

Action: Ortho-creme may be a suitable alternative for patients who are currently using Gynol II with good effect.
