Sporanox (Itraconazole) is used to treat a variety of fungal infections, including those affecting the toenails, fingernails, mouth, throat, lungs, and other parts of the body. It is classified as an azole antifungal medication and works by stopping the growth of fungi.

Sporanox should not be taken by individuals who have or have had heart failure, and caution should be exercised in patients with liver or kidney disease. It is not known if Sporanox is safe and effective in children, and pregnant individuals should avoid taking itraconazole due to potential harm to the unborn baby.

Do’s

  • Take it consistently at the same time(s) each day for optimal effectiveness.
  • If taking Sporanox in cycles (treatment periods with breaks), mark your calendar as a reminder.
  • Continue taking Sporanox for the entire prescribed duration, even if symptoms disappear, to prevent infection recurrence.
  • Consult your healthcare provider for guidance if you have questions about different forms of Sporanox.
