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

Yes, but…: Your fp may want to monitor liver function while you are taking sporonox as there is significant potential for liver damage. No interactions between the two drugs are listed. If you are taking other meds, they should be cross-checked as well. ...Read more
May not be effective: Assuming you do indeed have onychomycosis, the medication works on the new nail growing in. So you typically don;t start seeing any difference for about 3 months. Even after you complete a full course of medication not all medicines are 100% effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If I go off of Lipitor (atorvastatin) for 3 months in order to take sporanox, how much could my cholesterol increase in that amount of time?
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
Have "pityrosporum ovale". Been treated with Ketoconazole+Nizoral shampoo, Sporanox (itraconazole) pills and topical Brentacort. Problem persist. What else can I do?
Simple....: Take 400mg of Nizoral (ketoconazole) and do activity to sweat profusely after the pill. Iron all your garments, linen, towel....whatever touches your skin. The animal and human companion have to be cleansed. May repeat Nizoral (ketoconazole) one more time. If very extensive and stubborn rash....check your immune system. ...Read more
Does any one know what strength sporanox (itraconazole) comes in to get rid of ringworm of the scalp?
Depends on…: Age of the patient, condition of liver function, other meds being taken. Preferred treatment for tinea capitis (scalp ringworm) is griseofulvin, although sporonox has shown effectiveness as well. Since topical antifungals are usually ineffective, it's best to see your fp for treatment. Fp may want to check liver function before starting one of these potent meds. Count on 4-6 weeks treatment. ...Read more
I tried sporanox (itraconazole) for tv fungus got a bad rash during last week and now i was given 1 week fluconazole should I wait before this second treatment ?
I would wait: Sporonox and Fluconazole are not the treatment of choice for tinea versicolor fungus reactions. Ketoconazole is much better as after taken by mouth, it gets to the skin the fastest. However, after an allergic reaction, you should try to use a topical treatment first. Selinium sulfide 2.5% shampoo or Nizoral (ketoconazole) 2% shampoo are much better and safer choices to treat your tv. ...Read more
I have been having an itchy vagina on and off ~1yr. Treated w sporanox (itraconazole) 4x, diflucan 2x. Its still itchy n dry. Why..?
For over 4yrs I have taken a full course of sporanox (itraconazole) and applied daktarin tinkcha, am now using ciclopirox to treat my fingernail fungus?
Sample to lab.: Nail fungus can be very difficult to cure 100%. You may want a doctor to test the nail by taking a sample and sending it to a lab to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, if 4 years of antifungals did not work to improve the nails. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
