What is Itraconazole (Generic Sporanox) and what are its uses?

Sporanox (Itraconazole) is an antifungal type of antibiotic.

Sporanox treats serious fungal infections such as aspergillosis, blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, and fungal infection localized to the toenails and fingernails (onychomycosis). 

How does Itraconazole (Generic Sporanox) treat?

Sporanox belongs to a class of drugs known as the triazoles. Sporanox is used in the treatment of fungal infections and works by interfering with their growth and repair mechanisms.

Sporanox inhibits the production of a molecule called ergosterol, which is a component of the fungal cell membrane. Damage to this membrane cannot be repaired and this interferes with the cells ability to reproduce.

Sporanox can be used in the treatment of a number of different types of fungal infections, including those of the genitals, mouth and skin. Sporanox is also useful in treating systemic (whole body) fungal infections and to prevent them from developing in those with a depleted immune system. 

Dosage: How should you take Itraconazole (Generic Sporanox)?

Take Sporanox capsules orally.

Sporanox capsules work best if you take them with food or a cola beverage, but do not take them with oranges or orange juice.

Adults
Blastomycosis and Histoplasmosis
The usual prescribed dose of Sporanox is two 100-milligram capsules, taken after a full meal once a day. If you feel no improvement, or if there is evidence that the fungal disease has spread, your doctor will increase the dose 100 milligrams at a time to a maximum of 400 milligrams a day. Daily dosages above 200 milligrams a day should be divided into 2 smaller doses.

Aspergillosis
The usual dose of Sporanox is 200 to 400 milligrams a day. Treatment usually continues for a minimum of 3 months, until tests indicate that the fungal infection has subsided. Onychomycosis
The usual dose of Sporanox for a toenail infection, whether or not fingernails are also involved, is 200 milligrams once a day for 12 weeks.

If only fingernails are infected, treatment is given in two 7-day-long sessions during which you take 200 milligrams of Sporanox twice a day, with a 3-week rest period between sessions.

Children
Contact your pediatrician or health care professional regarding the use of Sporanox in children. Special care may be needed.
