Special instructions

Treatment needs to be carried out before emergence of kliniko-hematologic remission as premature phase-out of Mikosist can lead to development of a recurrence.

In rare instances use of a flukonazol was followed by manifestations of toxic action on a liver (including a lethal outcome), most often – at patients with the serious accompanying diseases. In this regard during Mikosist's use it is necessary to control function of a liver, and at emergence of signs of its defeat which can be connected with administration of drug, therapy should be cancelled.

During treatment development of exfoliative skin reactions (Stephens-Johnson's syndrome, a toxic epidermal necrolysis) was in rare instances noted. Patients with malignant new growths and AIDS are more inclined to development of heavy skin reactions.

If during treatment at patients with a superficial fungal infection it is observed developing of rash which can be connected with Mikosist's reception, therapy it is necessary to cancel. Especially careful control when developing rash is required to patients with system invasive fungal infections.

At development of a mnogoformny erythema or violent defeats drug is cancelled.

  • Sulphonylurea drugs: lengthening of their T1/2 in this connection at use of this combination of medicines it is necessary to consider possibility of a hypoglycemia;
  • Takrolimus: increase in its concentration in blood serum and risk of development of nephrotoxicity;
  • Theophylline: decrease in average speed of its clearance from a blood plasma, increase in risk of development of its toxic action and overdose;
  • Phenytoinum: clinically significant increase in its concentration (dose adjustment can be required);
  • Rifampicin: reduction of its Cmax and T1/2 (dose adjustment of a flukonazol can be required);
  • Midazolam: substantial increase of its concentration in a blood plasma and risk of development of psychomotor reactions;
  • Rifabutin: increase in its serumal concentration, probability of development of a uveitis;
  • Cyclosporine: increase in its concentration in blood;
  • Hydrochlorothiazide: increase in concentration of a flukonazol in a blood plasma.

At simultaneous use of Mikosist it is necessary to be careful with other drugs which are metabolized system of P450 cytochrome.
