Itraconazole with betacyclodextrin 200 mg Tablet
Itraconazole is an triazole medicine used to treat fungal infections.
Itraconazole is effective against a broad spectrum of fungi including:
- Dermatophytes (tinea infections)
- Yeasts such as candida and malassezia infections
- Systemic fungal infections such as histoplasma, aspergillus, coccidiodomycosis, chromoblastomycosis.
Itraconazole is sometimes used for inflammatory skin diseases such as atopic eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis or psoriasis, if a fungus or yeast is thought to be contributing to the condition.
Itraconazole binds to the fungal p450 enzymes and stops the cells making ergosterol, the main component of the cell wall.
