Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency. The micafungin must be stopped and appropriate treatment administered.
Some early cases of anaphylaxis can be treated with antihistamines and corticosteroids. More severe cases are life-threatening emergencies and require immediate medical attention. If available, epinephrine should be given at the first sign of a serious reaction to slow the progression of symptoms. Doctors treat anaphylaxis with the medication, epinephrine, and with intravenous fluids. The person also may need treatment with oxygen, mechanical ventilation (a machine helps the patient breathe temporarily), and antihistamines or corticosteroids given intravenously (into a vein).
