2.What is FLUZOLE and what is it used for?

FLUZOLE is a white homogeneous powder in number 2 white capsule.

FLUZOLE is one of a group of medicines called antifungals. The active ingredient is fluconazole.

FLUZOLE is used to treat infections caused by fungi, including yeasts. It can also be used to prevent you from getting a fungal infection. The most common cause of fungal infections is a yeast called Candida.

This medicine may be given to you by your doctor to treat the following types of fungal infections.

    Mucosal thrush, infection of the mouth or throat. Patients with normal or compromised immune functions can be treated.
    Skin infections - eg. Foot fungus, ringworm, itching.
    Internal (systemic) fungal infections caused by:
    Blood circulation, body organs (e.g. heart, lungs), peritoneum, membrane consisting of a row of squamous epithelial tissue covering the inside of the heart, candida found in the eye or urinary tract

    • Cryptococcus, eg. infections in other areas, such as meningitis and the lungs and skin
    In immunocompetent patients, in developing systemic fungal diseases

    You may also be given FLUZOLE for the following:
    To prevent you from getting a yeast infection (if your immune system is not working properly). In the prevention of fungal infections in patients who predispose to fungal infections due to malignant disease as a result of drug therapy in cell-killing cancer or radiation therapy in cancer.

    • To prevent the return of an infection from Cryptococcus (in AIDS patients)

    Your doctor may begin your treatment before the results of culture and other laboratory studies are known. Once the results are clear, treatment will be arranged by your doctor as needed.

3. How to use FLUZOLE?

The daily dose of fluconazole should depend on the type and severity of the fungal infection. For types of infections that require treatment with repeated doses, treatment should be continued until clinical parameters or laboratory tests indicate that the active fungal infection has cleared. An insufficient duration of treatment leads to a relapse of the active infection. To prevent recurrence; AIDS and cryptococcal meningitis require maintenance therapy.

Unless recommended otherwise by the doctor, the following doses may be used:
Mucosal thrush - dose depends on the site of infection

50 mg once daily for 7-14 or 14-30 days. Doses are sometimes increased to 100 mg.

Fungal skin infections

50 mg once daily for 2-4 weeks (for athlete's foot, can be given for up to 6 weeks)

Systemic fungal infections

400 mg on day one, then 200-400 mg once daily for 6-8 weeks or longer if needed. If you have AIDS, your doctor may use the drug at 200 mg daily indefinitely after a full primary cure to prevent recurrence.

To prevent you from getting a fungal infection

When you are at risk of getting an infection, 50-400mg once a day. If you are at high risk of systemic infection, it is 400 mg once a day. Fluconazole administration should begin a few days before onset in patients with a predicted decrease in the number of granular cells in the blood (neutropenia) and continue for 7 days after the neutrophil count rises above 1000/mm3.
