About Sporanox (itraconazole)

Sporanox is an effective antifungal agent. Like other antifungals, this medication will kill fungus or prevent the growth of fungus, but it won't work on bacterial or viral infections.

This prescription-only medication is available in different forms such as itraconazole capsules or liquid solutions. It is available as a generic as itraconazole, as well as under different brand names, including Onmel and Tolsura. Sporanox is commonly prescribed to treat oral thrush, ringworm, and other fungal infections.

Young children under age 12 may be prescribed itraconazole oral solution. Pediatric dosing is available for Sporanox to treat fungal infections.

It's important to follow the instructions you get with your prescription. The instructions might change depending on the dosage or the form of Sporanox you're taking. Make sure you finish the full course of treatment unless your doctor tells you to stop. If you don't complete your treatment, you might not completely get rid of your fungal infection.

Sporanox uses

There are several FDA-approved uses for Sporanox, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online clinician may prescribe it for any of the following common reasons, or possibly other reasons not listed below. Ask your online doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about why a medication is prescribed.

  • Ringworm

    Ringworm, or tinea, is a common skin infection that is caused by a fungus. Ringworm is a circular shaped rash that is usually red and itchy and typically affects the feet, groin, scalp, or beneath the breasts. Although it is not FDA approved to treat, it may be a second-line option for common fungal skin infections.

  • Oral thrush

    Oral thrush, also known as oral candidiasis, is a fungal infection of the mouth. Oral thrush is not contagious and can be treated with antifungal medications. Sporanox is to be used as an off-label treatment for Candidiasis.

Sporanox side effects

  • The side effects associated with taking Sporanox are typically mild. Most Sporanox side effects are associated with gastrointestinal discomfort. Common side effects of taking itraconazole may include:

    Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

    You should tell your doctor immediately if you notice any of these side effects, or if you develop any other new or severe symptoms. Call 911 and seek emergency medical assistance immediately if you develop severe symptoms.

How to take Sporanox

Your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your Sporanox prescription.

Be sure to read your patient information leaflet and follow the instructions. Call your doctor or pharmacy if you have any questions.

When taking Sporanox, it's important to follow the specific instructions provided with your prescription, as it is available in various forms and doses. Typically, it is prescribed as a capsule once daily for one to three weeks, depending on the type of fungal infection you have. Specific instructions may include taking the capsules with a full meal, swallowing the capsules whole, and avoiding crushing or chewing the tablets. Instructions for the oral solution may include taking it on an empty stomach.

What to avoid while taking Sporanox

Sporanox has many food and drug interactions. Don’t change what you are taking without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. That includes other supplements or medications, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal products. 

It is important to know which foods interact with Sporanox. Non-diet cola drinks have been shown to increase the absorption of capsules, while grapefruit or grapefruit juice may decrease or increase blood levels of Sporanox. Proton pump inhibitors and antacids are also known to interact with itraconazole.

Those with kidney disease, liver disease, or congestive heart failure should ask their doctor before taking itraconazole.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist if it is acceptable to consume alcohol while taking Sporanox. Some research shows that regular alcohol consumption may affect prescription medication absorption. Alcohol may also reduce the medication’s ability to do its job, making it harder to treat your underlying condition.

Medication alternatives to Sporanox

If your healthcare provider prefers to put you on another treatment altogether, they may suggest another antifungal or an azole derivative in another drug class. Here are some common doctor-recommended alternatives based on your health issue:
