Nizoral is a medication designed specifically for fungal infections treatment. It is an azole antifungal, meaning this drug destroys sensitive fungy on the stage where the fungal cell membrane is being formed. There is a single fungal infection, however, where Nizoral ought not be used by any means. This is fungal meningitis, a disease that affects the brain membranes.
Generally, in the modern medical circles the use of Nizoral is concidered to be rather risky. For example, there has been evidence of Nizoral causing several liver problems. Whereas many similar medicines influence the liver to a certain extent and thus should always be taken combined with hepatoprotectors. If you notice you are experiencing unusual fatigue, your eyes or sking are yellowing, urine gets darker, you are losing your appetite and periodically have fits of abdominal pain, vomiting and/or persistent nausea, these might be the symptoms of liver toxicity. Contact your physician immediately. Before you start on a Nizoral treatment regimen, have your doctor perform liver function tests on you, and repeat them from time to time throughout the therapy period.
If you have a weak heart, especially combined with an irregular heartbeat problem, note that combining Nizoral wish astemizole, cisapride, terfenadine and their analogues may place you in a serious danger that can prove itself lethal. Be careful and call your doctor about any unusual condition you may develop.
