What is Itrazole (Itraconazole) used for?
Itrazole (Itraconazole) is an antifungal medication prescribed for the treatment of a large variety of fungal infections. The medication destroys or prevents the reproduction of bacteria cells allowing the immune system to control or destroy the infection. This action makes it useful for treating athlete`s foot, nail infections, oral thrush, vaginal thrush, or systemic fungal infections. Your doctor may also recommend the use of this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Itrazole (Itraconazole)?
Itrazole (Itraconazole) capsules are normally taken once daily at a dosage of one tablet for at least three months. Your individual dosage will be determined by your doctor based on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a full glass of water and a meal to prevent nausea. Do not open the capsules or dissolve their contents in water to avoid destroying their contents. Never stop taking the medicine before being instructed to do so, even if your symptoms seem to have disappeared, as the infection may not be gone and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment.
