How long can you use the mycelex (clotrimazole) troches for oral thrush?

Do I keep using clotrimazole 2% cream if male thrush has not cleared up after 2weeks & does it stop burning of male thrush?

Phimosis?: Failure to improve on 2 weeks clotrimazole likely means the problem isn't a yeast infection (thrush); maybe bacterial or nonspecific balanitis. Or perhaps a yeast type resistant to "azole" drugs. You list tight foreskin (phimosis) as a medical condition, and you might need surgery e.g. circumcision to get over this. See a urologist, or consider one of UK's excellent NHS GUM clinics. Good luck. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: A drug is often formulated & prepared in 2-3 strengths in a tablet so to be more versatile to apply for patients with different body weight or with different disease severity.

On clotrimazole for 3 weeks. Some improvement in tongue. Blood tests fine. Nonsmoker. Would different drug be better for oral thrush.

Nystatin / Diflucan (fluconazole): You could use Diflucan (fluconazole) & Nysatin. The question also is, why do you have thrush? Diabetes, antibiotic use, inhaled steroids, and immune system problems are some of the causes. ...Read more

It: It is generally not recommended that Clotrimazole and Migranal (dihydroergotamine) be taken together. The combination can cause higher levels of Migranal (dihydroergotamine) in the blood and a few cases of toxicity have been reported. Luckily, no problems have been reported with the Clotrimazole lozenges though a theoretical risk exists. Symptoms of toxicity include numbness, tingling, abdominal pain, chest pain, muscle cramps and rapid pulse. If you are feeling any of these call your doctor or go to the emergency room. Good luck! ...Read more
