Itraconazole is also used for the treatment of fungal infections of the fingernails and toenails, and yeast infections for the mouth and throat. It belongs to a class of antifungals called triazoles and its main mechanism of action is to inhibit the growth and spread of fungi that causes the infection. Itraconazole should be taken with caution, as it is known to cause congestive heart failure.
Secnidazole, on the other hand, is a nitroimidazole anti-infective that has been reported to be effective for the treatment of amoebiasis, giardiasis, bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas. A single dose of secnidazole has a clinical and parasitological cure rate of 80 to 100 percent, and 92 to 100 percent cure rates in patients with urogenital trichomoniasis. Compared to itraconazole, secnidazole is well-tolerated and most of the ill effects reported from taking this drug are gastrointestinal in nature.
Sporasec is administered orally. Sporasec with itraconazole is available in 33.3 milligrams. and 166.6 milligrams with secnidazole.Learn more in Medications & Vitamins
