Anti-fungal And Anti-bacterial Drugs Taken At The Same Time?
Is it permissible for the mesol drug methylprednisolone and itzol to be taken together? R nBecause I see the contra indications that mesol is not for those with fungal infections. But my doctor gave the prescription. I wonder how?
Hello Donuts, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Medicines from the corticosteroid class such as methylprednisolone must be used with caution. These types of drugs when taken in large doses can cause a decrease in the body's immune system. This decrease in the immune system can have an impact, one of which is the worsening of fungal infections (especially in systemic fungal infections).
However, the use of these corticosteroid drugs can be considered in some cases of fungal infections, namely if the inflammation that occurs is so severe that it can cause more damage than the yeast infection itself. Some examples of conditions in which corticosteroids can be used for yeast infections include:
exacerbation of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) kerion allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (severe infection of tinea capitis) granulomatous fulminant pneumonitis To find out more clearly the reasons for giving methylprednisolone along with itraconazole, you should ask directly to the doctor who treats you. Your doctor certainly has his own considerations in administering this therapy.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
