I have oral/troat thrush took nistatin & fluconazole 200mg /16 days now itraconazole 100 mg /14 is not working what can I do? I'm terrified.

Treat basic problem: It sounds like you are receiving treatment from a health provider (who prescribed meds). Are you and the provider certain this is thrush? Are you being evaluated or treated for an underlying disorder that has made you more susceptible to infection? Need to be certain the proper med is given for the diagnosis.

Can itraconazole lower birth control effectiveness?

Can itraconazole lower birth control effectiveness?

No good data: Griseofulvin can increase metabolism of the hormones in bcp's and therby reduce blood levels of the hormones and risk pregnancy. Azole antifungals don't interfere with liver metabolism of bcp's. There have been case reports of unintended pregnancies & late withdrawl bleeding with itraconazole but these are not listed as warnings with itra. Both can cause liver injury & need physician follow-up. ...Read more

While on a 15-day course of itraconazole, can I drink alcohol?

While on a 15-day course of itraconazole, can I drink alcohol?

Yes: There does not appear to be a contraindication which is related to this particular medication. Alcohol in the blood stream has some negative effects on white blood cell actions, and if you are being treated for infection, theoretically it is not a good idea to inhibit WBC activities (but this is probably inconsequential). ...Read more

How long does it take for itraconazole(sporanox) to start working?

How long does it take for itraconazole(sporanox) to start working?

Too soon to tell: Even if it is wildly successful, it takes several months with sporanox (or Lamisil (terbinafine) oral or even laser therapy) to see results. It is because nails grow so slowly and the new nail--the back of the nail--will hopefully be clear, but it takes several months for the new nail to become visible. If working, the nail will grow in like a window shade with progressively more of the nail being clear. ...Read more

Had CBC done. MPV came back high 11.6. Should I be concerned? Also, on sporanox (itraconazole) could the itraconzale cause the high MPV? Thanks

Had CBC done. MPV came back high 11.6. Should I be concerned? Also, on sporanox (itraconazole) could the itraconzale cause the high MPV? Thanks

Not at all: MPV is meaningless if there's isn't already obvious disease involving the platelets. The reference range is set so that a few percent fall outside on either end. And some folks just have big or small ones. ...Read more

I still have fungus, so do I need to get a refill even though my doctor prescribed me itraconazole (15 pills)? I've had fungus for like 5 years

I still have fungus, so do I need to get a refill even though my doctor prescribed me itraconazole (15 pills)? I've had fungus for like 5 years

Location Dependent: Treatment of a fungal infection depends heavily on the type of fungus and the location in/on the body where the fungus resides. Toenail fungus requires 3 months of treatment in most cases, and then you must wait for 12 months or so before the nails grows out normally. Fungal infections in the skin are different, requiring a shorter treatment time. See your doctor again for an explanation. ...Read more
