SALT INFORMATION for CANDIFEM

Miconazole(100 mg)

Uses

Miconazole is used in the treatment of fungal infections.

How it works

Miconazole acts mainly by preventing the growth of fungi. It interacts with chemicals (cytochrome P-450) inside the fungus and prevents the synthesis of an essential component of fungal cell membrane (ergosterol); this results in increased cellular permeability causing leakage of cellular contents from fungal cell, ultimately preventing fungal growth. Miconazole possesses antifungal activity against dermatophytes and yeasts as well as antibacterial activity against certain gram-positive bacilli and cocci.

Common side effects

Abdominal pain, Burning sensation, Itching, Vaginal discharge, Vaginal irritation, Vaginal swelling, Fever
Ornidazole(500 mg)
