Uses : Itraconazole is used to treat a variety of fungal infections. It belongs to a class of drugs known as azole antifungals. It works by stopping the growth of fungi.

How to use Itraconazole :

  • Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking itraconazole and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Take this medication by mouth with a full meal as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice daily. Swallow the capsules whole.
  • Take itraconazole 2 hours before or 1 hour after antacids. Antacids may decrease the absorption of this medication. Also, take this medication with an acidic drink (such as cola) if you have decreased or no stomach acid (achlorhydria) or if you take drugs that decrease stomach acid (for example, H2 blockers such as ranitidine, proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
  • The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Some conditions may require you to take this medication in cycles (twice daily for 1 week, then stopping the medication for 3 weeks).
  • For the best effect, take this antifungal at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take this medication at the same time(s) every day. Mark your calendar with a reminder if you are taking this medication in cycles.
  • Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.
  • The capsule/tablet and solution forms of this medication deliver different amounts of medication and may be used for different purposes. Do not switch between the different forms of this drug without your doctor's permission and directions.
  • Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.


Side Effects :

  • Nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, headache, stomach upset, or dizziness may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
  • Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
  • Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: numbness/tingling of arms/legs, hearing loss, mental/mood changes (such as depression).
  • Itraconazole has rarely caused very serious (possibly fatal) liver disease. Tell your doctor right away if you develop symptoms of liver disease, such as: nausea/vomiting that doesn't stop, loss of appetite, stomach/abdominal pain, yellowing eyes/skin, dark urine.
  • Itraconazole can commonly cause a mild rash that is usually not serious. However, you may not be able to tell it apart from a rare rash that could be a sign of a severe allergic reaction. Get medical help right away if you develop any rash.
  • A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
