Treatment in Life-Threatening Situations
Although clinical studies did not provide for a loading dose, it is recommended, based on pharmacokinetic data, that a loading dose should be used. A loading dose of 130 mg (2 × 65 mg capsules) three times daily (390 mg/day) is recommended to be given for the first 3 days, followed by the appropriate recommended dosing based on indication. Treatment should be continued for a minimum of three months and until clinical parameters and laboratory tests indicate that the active fungal infection has subsided. An inadequate period of treatment may lead to recurrence of active infection.
