GRISOVIN (GRISEOFULVIN)

Grisovin is Recommended When Topical Antifungals Won’t Do

For treating fungal infections of your nails, hair, scalp, or skin, topical products can be inconvenient and just not as effective. Talk to your doctor about Grisovin, an oral antifungal tablet that you can take with or after meals as this will decrease the chance of an upset stomach. This is a long-term treatment and could take up to six months before the fungus has been destroyed, depending on where the infection is and the type of fungus.

How Grisovin Works in Your Body

The active ingredient in Grisovin is called Griseofulvin which, when taken as directed, works by binding to a protein called keratin and forms in the cells of your nail bed, hair follicles. This action will not kill the fungi, but stops the fungal cells from infecting the new keratin that grows instead and prevents the fungus from being able to multiply.

Things You Need to do to Avoid Infecting Others

Clearing up a fungal infection can be as short as 2 weeks or as long as 6 months, depending on where the infection is. Nails are probably the toughest to treat as it can take months for new keratin to form and the fungi to cease to exist. This may mean you are going to have to be vigilant about hand washing and using your own towels, razors, soaps, loofah sponges, nail clippers, and anything else you handle that can possibly harbor fungus.

Before Taking Grisovin

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding before taking Grisovin as it can be harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Provide information on all over the counter and Rx drugs you currently take or use to be certain there will be no adverse interactions with Grisovin. If you are taking birth control pills or patches, a second means of preventing a pregnancy should be used, such as a condom. Men should use a condom so as not to impregnate your spouse or partner. Discuss this with your doctor to know how long you need to use protection.

Grisovin Precautions

Be diligent about taking Grisovin as directed as any missed doses can only prolong your treatment time. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share your meds with anyone else. Until you know how your body will react to taking Grisovin, do not operate a vehicle or machinery as dizziness may occur. Your skin may be more reactive to sunlight exposure so wear protective clothing to cover up when outdoors.
