Nail Fungus


Nizoral is a medicine prescribed against fungal infections. Coming in tablet form, Nizoral has to be taken with food to avoid upset of the stomach.

The recommended dosage for an adult is 200 mg daily and it may be increased to 400 mg if the infection persists. For children the dosage ranges from 3.3 mg to six mg per 2.2 pounds body weight.

If you have started Nizoral, you should have to complete the whole medication. Never stop in the middle of a course once you see slight improvement in the infections. If the dose is stopped in the middle of a course, there is a possibility that the infection may relapse.

Maintain the right dosage through out your medication. If by any chance a dose is missed, take it as you remember it. But never take two doses at the same time.

When consulting the doctor, you should have to inform him about all your present and past medical history. You should not hide from the doctor if you have any heart related issues, liver/kidney problems and achlorhydria.

Though it is not known if Nizoral can cause harm to the newborn, pregnant women and those who hope to get pregnant should only take the drug after consulting the doctor. Breast-feeding women should not feed the newborn if you are on Nizoral medication.

After taking Nizoral, you should never drive or perform any hard task as the drug is known to cause dizziness. Avoid antacids and stomach acid reducers for at least two hours after the drug is taken.
