Use Caution When Taking Antifungal Medications

Use Caution When Taking Antifungal Medications

When you’re trying to cure a fungal toenail, antifungal medications can help, but they also have side effects. Certain antifungal medications can negatively affect the way your liver functions. If you want to take an oral antifungal medication, ask your doctor about doing a liver enzyme test first. By taking this test before you start the medicine, your doctor can monitor the affect it is having on your liver and make sure that your liver is not being damaged.*

While it is rare that antifungal medications will severely affect your liver, monitoring things with your doctor’s help is a safe and smart choice. You can also support healthy liver function by eating artichokes and consuming turmeric and dandelion.
