What should I watch for?

Visit your doctor or health care professional for check ups. Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve. Some fungal infections can take many weeks or months of treatment to cure.

Avoid medicines for your stomach like antacids and acid blockers for at least two hours after taking this medicine.

You may get drowsy or dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know how this medicine affects you. Do not stand or sit up quickly, especially if you are an older patient. This reduces the risk of dizzy or fainting spells.

Avoid alcohol while you are taking this medicine. Alcohol can increase the risk of liver damage.
