Grisactin has griseofulvin as its active ingredient, a medical preparation belonging to the class of antifungal drugs. It works much like an antibiotic, but is aimed specifically at fungal infections treatment. It is most commonly used to help with fungal infection of the skin, hair, and nails: jock itch, barber's itch, athlete's foot and the like.
Grisactin is available in the form of tablets, capsules, and suspensions, and needs to be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat. When taking the drug, follow your doctor's instructions carefully as they may vary slightly from patient to patient. For example, your doctor may recommend ingesting Grisactin along with a meal that is high on fats so as its absorption into your body is increased; however, in other cases Grisactin may be taken independently of food. You will, however, have to wash each dose down with a full glass of water. Remember that your symptoms will likely improve before the infection is cured completely, meaning although you will feel quite well you will have to continue with the treatment. Do not stop taking Grisactin without consulting your physician first.
Grisactin's side effects include thrysh/yeast infections in your mouth, nausea, diarrhea, headache, dizzines, confusion, insomnia, numbness or a tingling sensation in your hands and feet, menstrual cycle irregularities. If you experience any of these, continue taking the medication as usual but still take care to inform your doctor.
