What is Itrazole (Itraconazole) used for?
Itrazole (Itraconazole) is an oral antifungal medication prescribed to treat a wide variety of fungal infections. It operates by destroying or preventing the reproduction of fungus cells allowing the immune system to control or eliminate the infection. This medication is normally used to treat oral thrush, vaginal thrush, or infections affecting the nails, skin, soft tissues, or blood. Your physician may prescribe it to treat other unlisted conditions, as well.

Follow the instructions provided by your physician while using Itrazole (Itraconazole) to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One tablet is typically taken once or twice each day for a period of medication lasting one or two weeks, but the best instructions will be determined by the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. Swallow the tablets whole and unaltered along with a large glass of water. They may be taken on an empty stomach, but a meal or snack is recommended if you experience nausea. Do not stop taking the medication before being told 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.
