Using Nizoral for Yeast Infections

Yeast infections and thrush are common hazards for both men and women alike as the result of contact with Candida bacteria. For mild, localized infections, natural remedies may be appropriate. They are easy to find and relatively inexpensive. For more advanced cases of infection, however, medicinal therapy will clear up the symptoms more quickly and effectively. It's wise to use a combination of treatments at times--- A prescribed solution to take away the symptoms and then natural remedies to work proactively to fight candida permanently.

There are many medications available to treat Candida infections and new ones are being constantly developed. Among these, Nizoral is often used for particularly resistant strains of Candida. It can also be found in anti-dandruff shampoos.

How Nizoral (Ketoconazole) Works

Of the medicines available for treating localized yeast infections, Nizoral (Ketoconazole) is one which has proven to be most effective in targeting the source. Nizoral belongs to the triazoles family of drugs which are considered fungistatic agents. These treatments work by interfering with the growth of fungus, disabling them from building cell walls. They are usually prescribed as an oral medication which should be taken with food and plenty of water to avoid an upset stomach.

Contraindications for Nizoral

Patients should avoid taking antacids during the period which they have been prescribed Nizarol since the drug works best in an acidic gastric environment. There are also contraindications advised for anyone also taking prescriptions for Warfarin (also known as Coumadin) and Xanax (alprazolam). Some patients have reported dry mouth and sensitivity to light as side effects from taking Nizarol. At high dosages, there is a risk to normal liver function. If Nizoral is prescribed for a lengthy period of time (some infections take up to two months to treat), patients must submit to regular blood tests in order to ensure the health of endocrine functions. Symptoms of hepatoxicity which may occur include itchy skin, pain on the right side of the body at the base of the ribs, abdominal cramping, and dark stools and/or urine being passed. Patients with prior liver problems should probably avoid taking Nizoral or any triazole classification of medication.

Overall, Nizoral is a safe and effective drug treatment for the various forms of Candida. In particular, it has shown to be quite effective for alleviating oral thrush, which may appear as white spots in the mouth.

As with any fairly new drug, some patients are hesitant to begin taking their prescription for fear of possibly negative side effects. Nizarol has proven to be both safe and effective in treating Candida infections and there should be no worries about its risks unless prior liver problems have been identified.
