About Noxafil

The active ingredient of Noxafil is called Posaconazole and may be prescribed to treat certain fungal infections after other drugs have failed to work well. Individuals with a compromised immune system are the most likely to be affected by fungus infections such as aspergillosis. This fungus is a mold found outdoors in decaying leaves, in compost, and on plants or trees and indoors the spores are found in air conditioning, heating ducts, and some food.

How Noxafil Affects Fungal Cells

Noxafil works by inhibiting a certain enzyme (14a-demethylase) in order to stop its conversion into ergosterol which is an essential component of fungal membranes. Without this substance, cell membranes are disrupted which allows the cell contents to leak out and other substances seep in so the fungi die as they are unable to grow and reproduce.

Conditions Treated by Noxafil

Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis is a serious infection with pneumonia that can spread to other parts of the body. This infection occurs most often in people with a weakened immune system. Invasive Aspergillosis is caused by breathing in the Aspergillus spores. Because most people with suppressed immune systems cannot fight this infection alone or have tried other drugs to no avail, you may be treated with Noxafil.

Oral thrush, also called Candida albicans, is another infection that Noxafil will help treat. This is a yeast infection that develops on the mucus membranes in your mouth and causes thick white or cream colored deposits on your tongue or inner cheeks. Long-term steroid use, people who wear dentures, and excessive use of antibacterial mouthwashes are more likely to develop oral thrush than others.

Noxafil is also prescribed to prevent invasive fungal infections in people who are having chemotherapy for acute myelogenous leukemia or myelodysplastic syndromes or to prevent invasive fungal infections in people who have had a bone marrow transplant because of suppressed immune systems.

Before You Take Noxafil

To avoid possible negative interactions between Noxafil and other medications, make a list for your prescribing physician of any OTC and Rx drugs you are on, and remember to include herbal and vitamin supplements. Inform your doctor of other medical conditions or allergies you have so your doctor can determine whether it is safe for you to take Noxafil.

Important to Know When Taking Noxafil

Noxafil can cause liver problems or affect electrolyte balances, so it may be necessary to have blood tests done while taking Noxafil, especially if you are taking it for an extended period of time. It’s unknown whether taking Noxafil could be unsafe for an unborn baby or if it passes into breast milk so alert your doctor if you are pregnant, become pregnant, or are nursing an infant while taking Noxafil.
