Reviews for Itraconazole
For Sporotrichosis: "I'm a Canadian living in Mexico. After picking mangoes, I contracted a fungal skin infection called sporotrichosis. Got it diagnosed about a week after the symptoms started. I now have been taking itraconazole for just over a week. My dose is 400 mg a day, or two capsules twice a day. I'm happy with the results so far. Its a little slow to work, but it is definitely working. The skin lesions are healing and its not spreading to any more areas of the body. I know I'm gonna have to stick it out for a while with this medicine, but it is effective. The only thing is I've missed my period this week. I read another comment of a woman who said she didn't get hers for three months, so I imagine I'm gonna be in the same boat."

Sporanox (itraconazole) for Vaginal Yeast Infection: "I definitely recommend Sporanox because it worked well for me without side effects. My doc placed me on it for 7 days and then another 7 day repeat if symptoms persist; which it did. Upon completion of my 14 days (2 capsules once daily) I had no symptoms. It is now 2 going on 3 wks later and I haven't relapsed with any of the symptoms or anything indicating the yeast infection returning."

Sporanox (itraconazole) for Coccidioidomycosis: "I have had a cocci infection in my left knee for 25 years (research says it will be chronic). It took 5 years and 3 surgeries to get a diagnosis. I got relief the first day I started with Nizoral. After seven years, I switched to Sporanox 200 mg per day. Efforts to stop the therapy always followed with relapse. However, dropping to a 100mg per day maintenance dose after another 5 years kept all swelling and symptoms at bay. In 2004, I was able to stop taking Sporanox and was symptom free until last month (Sept, 2011). Swelling and heat disappeared within a day of restarting Sporanox. Titer blood test results have varied over the history of my infection from 32:1 to negative to 16:1 to again being negative at this time."

Sporanox (itraconazole) for Vaginal Yeast Infection: "Just started the treatment with Sporanox (on the first day) after vaginal infection pill and fungal cream didn't work and had a lot of hypersensitive skin reaction. Now going without cream just antiseptic rinse and some lotion on affected area. I found it works wonder as the first day taking the pills. I shall report once again after completion of 7 days treatment."

Sporanox (itraconazole) for Aspergillosis, Aspergilloma: "This medicine has saved my life. Just praying that my liver enzymes are staying normal, don't know what would happen if I have to stop taking it."

For Onychomycosis, Toenail: "I took one course of itraconazole (pulse therapy, 400mg/day during 1 week), after being unsuccessfully treated for onychomycosis of my 5th foot nail (I had it for years). So, since terbinafine didn't help, I decided to use this one, as my doctor advised. Now I have my new nail growing healthy, so my decision is to continue the treatment with this drug."

For Dermatophytosis: "I have used Itracozanole for about 3 months. Even though the medicine worked on my skin I had really bad side effects. I was constipated and didn't get my period for the whole 3 months I was taking the medicine."

Sporanox (itraconazole) for Onychomycosis, Toenail: "After a year on Sporanox, my badly infected and painful toenail grew out. Odd part is having the infected toenail and other, minor, medical conditions for 30 years; Sporanox cleared up many other conditions. The doctors said not possible, however, I know there is a connection. Heart arrhythmia, gone; non healing nose/anal fissures, gone; facial/scalp/pubic psoriasis plus mucus membrane inflammation gone for treatment duration, but back after year. A year later, the original nails were still clear, but different nail infected with peeling, scaly, skin across 1/3 of my foot. Strangely it didn't get worse. Back on Sporanox. Seems to be clearing both conditions. The returning problems above also vanished when restarting Sporanox."

Sporanox (itraconazole) for Onychomycosis, Toenail: "One small nail had 100% infection while 2-3 other toes (including big toes) were slightly affected. After one month it was clear. Sporanox was very effective. Healthy nail growth was apparent. But I stopped using the medicine because of the side effects, namely the sense of abnormal heart and mental function (not unlike the effects of pseudoephedrine) together with headaches and tiredness. I tried Lamisil for one month and the improvement continued but I suffered from nausea, tiredness and occasional headaches. Now I have just started Diflucan."

For Onychomycosis, Toenail: "This is perhaps one of the best medications out there. It will kill the fungus as long as you stay on top for about 6 months to a year with the medicine. To bad it's not over the counter yet."
