Eat cold or slightly warm food if the smell of cooked or cooking food makes you feel sick. Get plenty of fresh air. You could also try chewing ginger or drinking ginger tea. Eat bananas to replace potassium in your blood which can drop if you are sick (vomit). Use oral rehydration salts to replace vitamins and minerals lost through being sick. There are some medicines that can help you stop from feeling sick. Speak to your doctor if your condition does not improve.

FAQs

Q. What is Canpex and what is it used for?

Canpex belongs to a class of medicines known as antifungal medicines. It is used in the treatment of fungal infections such as oral thrush (fungal or yeast infection of the mouth). It kills fungi by destroying the fungal cell membrane and thus cures the infections.

Q. Is Canpex safe to use for a long time?

Canpex should not be used for more than 7 days, unless your doctor tells you to. This is because with long-term use the fungal infection may become resistant to Canpex. As a result, the medicine may no longer be able to work properly. If your condition does not improve even after 6 months, please talk to your doctor. The doctor may modify your dose or probably suggest a different or more efficient medicine.

Q. How does Canpex work?

Canpex works by killing the infection-causing fungi by destroying its cell membrane. This helps to relieve the symptoms such as pain, redness, itching or soreness, thereby treating the infection.

Q. How long does Canpex take to work?

Canpex starts working as early as 3 days. The itching and discharge (if any) are the first ones to get better. Pain and soreness may take a little longer to resolve, as long as 7 days. But, if it takes longer, or if your symptoms do not subside or get worse, please consult your doctor immediately.

Q. What if I forget to take a dose of Canpex?

f you forget to take a dose of Canpex, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next scheduled dose. Do not double the dose to make up for the missed one as this may increase the chances of developing side effects.

Q. I feel better now, can I stop taking Canpex?

No, you should not stop taking Canpex suddenly without talking to your doctor. This is because your symptoms may worsen and your infection may return. Remember, your symptoms may improve and you may feel better before the infection is completely cleared. Stopping the medication too early could allow the fungus to continue to grow and hence, prevent complete healing.
