Posaconazole is a medication that is used to prevent certain fungal infections in patients with weakened immune systems, such as those who have undergone a hematopoietic stem cell transplant or have blood cancers. It is available in various forms, including delayed-release tablets, oral suspension, and delayed-release oral suspension.
Posaconazole delayed-release tablets are also used to treat invasive aspergillosis, while oral suspension is used to treat oral thrush, a fungal infection of the mouth or throat. It can be used as a first-line treatment or after other antifungal medications have failed.
It is important to note that this medication requires a doctor’s prescription and is available in different dosage forms, including tablets, suspension, and powder for extended-release. As with all prescription medications, patients should consult with their healthcare provider before taking this medication to ensure its appropriate use and potential side effects.
