What is itraconazole and how does it work?

Itraconazole is an antifungal medicine known as a triazole and it belongs to a class of other antifungal medicines such as ketoconazole, and fluconazole. It is used to treat fungal infections in various parts of the body. Some fungi live naturally in the body, however, sometimes these fungi can overgrow which causes an infection, or a harmful fungus may invade the human body and infect a certain organ. Fungal infections can be mild but fungal infections of the lungs can be serious. Most antifungal medicines work by stopping the fungus from multiplying and by killing the fungus.

Like other antifungal medicines, itraconazole kills the fungus by taking away a substance which is essential to the survival of the fungus, this is known as ergosterol. Ergosterol is part of the cell membrane and without this substance, the cell membrane becomes damaged and forms holes which force its contents to leak out and as a result, it can no longer survive. By preventing the fungus from producing ergosterol, itraconazole kills the fungus which eventually clears the infection.

Who is suitable to take itraconazole?

Itraconazole is suitable for adults who have been diagnosed with a fungal infection that responds well to this treatment. Itraconazole use in children and elderly patients is not recommended unless the benefits of taking this medicine outweigh the risks which will be determined by your doctor.

Who should not take itraconazole capsules?

In some circumstances itraconazole will not be a suitable treatment, this is usually because of a health condition or if the patient is taking any medication which may interact with itraconazole. Those who have an allergy to itraconazole or any of the other ingredients in this medicine should not take itraconazole as allergic reactions can be severe and life-threatening, in this circumstance you should avoid this medicine at all costs and speak to your doctor about alternative treatment. Itraconazole is also unsuitable for pregnant women, do not take if you’re pregnant, think you may be pregnant, or planning to become pregnant.

Speak to your doctor before taking itraconazole if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have or have ever had kidney problems
  • You have or have ever had liver problems such as jaundice
  • You have or have ever had heart problems

Can I take itraconazole while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Itraconazole should be avoided if you’re pregnant and for sometime after. If you’re not pregnant and are taking a course of itraconazole you should prevent pregnancy by using a form of contraception so that you don’t get pregnant while the medicine is in your system. If you think you’re pregnant while taking itraconazole speak to your doctor immediately. Small amounts of the medicine can pass into breastmilk so you should also avoid this medicine if you’re breastfeeding, speak to your doctor about alternative ways of treating your fungal infection.

There is an extensive list of medicines on the patient information leaflet which should not be taken with itraconazole, and there is also a list of medicines which aren’t recommended to be taken with itraconazole and you should discuss this with your doctor first.

How to take itraconazole capsules

How you take this medicine depends on the infection you’re treating. For vaginal thrush, the usual dose is two capsules to be taken in the morning and two capsules take 12 hours later for one day only. Oral thrush is one capsule a day for 15 days. Other fungal infections may be treated with a longer course but your doctor will tell you your dose and how long to take it based on the fungal infection you’re trying to treat.

It’s important to continue with the full course of treatment even if you start to feel better quite quickly, this is to ensure that the infection has fully cleared and that it doesn’t come back.
