Miconazole Disease Interactions

There are 2 disease interactions with miconazole:

Moderate

Miconazole (applies to miconazole) liver disease

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

The use of miconazole in patients with liver disease has not been adequately studied, although it is known that miconazole is primarily metabolized by the liver. Therapy with miconazole should be administered cautiously in patients with liver disease, and the dosing adjusted or discontinued according to clinical response.

Minor

Miconazole (applies to miconazole) hyperlipidemia

Minor Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Elevations in cholesterol and triglyceride levels may occur in patients receiving intravenous miconazole and are attributed to the drug vehicle, Cremophor EL (polyethoxylated castor oil). These increases are reversible upon discontinuation of miconazole therapy. Clinicians should be cognizant of these effects when interpreting lab results of hyperlipidemic patients during treatment with miconazole.

Drug Interaction Classification

These classifications are only a guideline. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific individual is difficult to determine. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
