Overview

Introduction of Syscan Capsule

Syscan 200 Capsule is an antifungal medication. It is used in the treatment of fungal infections, including yeast infections in different parts of our body. It kills fungi by destroying the fungal cell membrane.

Syscan 200 Capsule should be used in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. It may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular schedule. Do not double the dose. Do not use more than you need as it would not clear your condition faster and may only increase the side effects. Skin infections will usually get better after 2 to 4 weeks. Do not use it for longer than your doctor has told you to and let him or her know if your condition does not improve after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. You can help the medicine work better by keeping the affected areas clean, making sure they are dry and washing your hands before and after treating the infection. If you have athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.

Some of the common side effects include nausea, stomach pain, increased liver enzymes and diarrhea. These are not usually serious, but you should call your doctor if you think you might have a severe allergic reaction. Signs of this include rash, swelling of the lips, throat or face, swallowing or breathing problems, feeling dizzy or faint and nausea. Avoid direct contact of the medicine with your eyes. In case of direct contact, wash your eyes with water and seek immediate medical attention.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another cream that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ask your doctor if it is safe.
