The drug comes in three forms: capsule, ointment, and powder. The drug is taken mostly in the form of capsule. The capsule exhibits best results when consumed with acidic drinks (For instance, cola and acidic fruit juices) or foods (especially high-fat foods) that improve the absorption of itraconazole from the GI tract.

It interferes with an enzyme that’s important for creation of the fungal cell membrane, which makes the cell membrane unstable and thus leads to its death. Fungal infections can happen to anyone; however, they’re more common in people with weakened immune systems such as people who are hospitalized, having HIV or AIDS, under going through cancer treatment, taking medication immune suppressants. Transplant recipients are mostly prescribed an antifungal drug, which includes usage of Itraconazole.
