About VORITROL 200MG INJECTION

VORITROL 200MG INJECTION belongs to the class of medicines known as 'antifungals' used to treat a broad range of fungal infections. A fungal infection is caused when a fungus invades and affects any body part, including the mouth, throat, oesophagus, lungs, bladder, genital area and blood.

VORITROL 200MG INJECTION contains 'Voriconazole' that kills or prevents fungus by inhibiting an enzyme in fungi responsible for its normal fat metabolism, thereby interfering with the fungal cell membrane formation. As a result, fungal cells get killed, or their growth is minimized.

VORITROL 200MG INJECTION will be administered by a qualified healthcare professional. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects, such as injection site reactions, peripheral oedema, headache, diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain, chest pain, nausea, fever, anxiety, insomnia, confusion, weakness, tingling sensation, sleepiness, dizziness, irregular heartbeats, low blood pressure, stomach upset, constipation, rashes, itchiness, red skin, back pain and chills. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.

Before taking VORITROL 200MG INJECTION, let your doctor know about your medical condition, sensitivities, and medications. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding.
