General Information on Fulvicin
Fulvicin is used for treating fungal infections of the hair, nails, or skin, such as athlete’s foot, barber’s itch, or jock itch. The active ingredient in the medicine is Griseofulvin.
Being an anti-fungal drug, Fulvicin works by acting against the fungus that is responsible for the infection.
Fulvicin is available in the form of oral tablets.
This medication is used only for treating fungal infections and is ineffective against bacterial or yeast infections.
Side effects of Fulvicin
Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Fulvicin if you have a liver disease, porphyria, or if you have an allergy to the drug.
If taken during pregnancy, Fulvicin may sometimes result in conjoined twins. Therefore, talk to your doctor before using Fulvicin during pregnancy.
Fulvicin may affect sperm production. Therefore, men are advised to try and avoid conceiving a child for at least 6 months into Fulvicin treatment.
As the drug may increase the sensitivity of you skin to the sun, you should avoid direct exposure to sunlight. If you need to go out, you must wear the appropriate clothes to protect your skin from the sun and apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15. Also avoid alcohol intake during Fulvicin treatment, as the combination of Griseofulvin and alcohol may lead to fast heart rate and flushing.
Some common side effects associated with Fulvicin include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, tiredness, dizziness, insomnia, tingling or numbness in the feet or hands, irregular menstrual periods, or confusion. Some patients may also develop white patches inside the mouth which may be signs of a yeast infection or oral thrush. These are mild side effects of the drug and can be easily managed with or without medical help. However, you should immediately notify your doctor if any of these become uncontrollable.
Some hypersensitive patients may suffer from an allergic reaction to Fulvicin. Symptoms of an allergy include hives, severe dizziness, swelling or itching of the face, throat, tongue, or lips, or difficulty breathing. Stop taking Fulvicin if you have any of these symptoms. Seek medical help if they persist even after discontinuing the medicine.
Dosage of Fulvicin
You can buy Fulvicin in 250mg and 500mg strengths. One Fulvicin 250mg or 500mg tablet is to be taken once a day. The dosage recommended to you depends on the type and severity of your fungal infection and your response to treatment.
Fulvicin is to be taken with a full glass of water. Your doctor may ask you to consume a fatty meal along with the drug so that it can be better absorbed by your body.
Take Fulvicin for the full period of prescription even if your symptoms improve quickly, as certain symptoms can wane much before the infection has been completely treated.
Drug Interactions of Fulvicin
Serious drug interactions can take place if you take Fulvicin along with oral anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin), salicylates (e.g. salsalate or aspirin) or cyclosporine.
Fulvicin may decrease the efficiency of birth control pills, lead to breakthrough bleeding, or result in an unwanted pregnancy. Therefore, it is better to use a barrier form of contraception during Fulvicin treatment.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
