Gardisil

Were you looking for information about Gardasil? Gardisil is a common misspelling of Gardasil.
 
Gardasil® is a prescription medication that is used in the prevention of cervical cancer, vaginal and vulvar cancer, genital warts, and various precancerous genital lesions that are caused by certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV) in girls and women age 9 to 26. It is approved to prevent genital warts in boys and men age 9 to 26. Recently, the vaccine was also approved to prevent anal cancer (as well as precancerous anal lesions) in males and females age 9 to 26.
 
There is only one dosage for Gardasil, regardless of weight or age, and it is given in a three-shot series over a six-month period. As with any medication, side effects can occur with Gardasil, including nausea, dizziness, and reactions at the injection site.
 
In addition, this medication may not be suitable for everyone. For example, people with poorly functioning immune systems, bleeding disorders, or certain allergies may not be able to safely take Gardasil.
