There is 1 alcohol/food/lifestyle interaction with miconazole.


Miconazole High Cholesterol (Hyperlipoproteinemia, Hypertriglyceridemia, Sitosterolemia)

Minor Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

miconazole - hyperlipidemia

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.
