KETOCONAZOLE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Oral Thrush: “Do not take! I am a healthy 27 year old female that had a bad case of oral thrush due to an antibiotic and instantly started experiencing side pain. I waited five days before experiencing pain excruciating enough to make me chose childbirth over this pain. I went to urgent care and was diagnosed with gastritis because of this medication and it messed my liver up! Do not take!! There are better options!!!”

For Oral Thrush: “Avoid!! Needed for a really bad oral thrush infection from antibiotics and ended up gastritis and liver problems! I am a health 27 year old female and have never had anything wrong with my liver, ever! I immediately stopped using once I started to endure side effects after 5 days of 2x daily. Please use other methods. I have never been in such pain in my life and had to go to urgent care!!”

For Dermatophytosis: “I started using treatments for a skin rash that suddenly started appearing on my body, after using a box which Is equal 10 tablets I realised the rashes where disappearing so I stop using it several days or weeks later the rashes had start coming again, now I started taking it and I’m having a pretty bad side effects but I can see is working but side effects on my liver and a little swollen of my tongue too. Should I stop using it and start using it in its correct way that’s one tablet (200mg) a day for 6 months?”
