Off brand OTC meds for yeast infection?

Is it ok to take an off brand monistat for a yeast infection while pregnant? I know monistat is fine to use (according to my dr), but what about other brands? I have an off brand one already and would like to use it. This darn yeast infection was caused by taking antibiotics for a kidney infection...if it's not one thing it's another! Lol. Thanks!

  • Off brands have to meet the same criteria that name brand stuff has to meet so when it comes to meds it's all the same.
