What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Itraconazole is used to treat a variety of fungal infections. It belongs to a class of drugs known as azole antifungals. It works by stopping the growth of fungi.
Itraconazole should not be used to treat fungal nail infections if you have a history of heart failure. Itraconazole may rarely cause or worsen heart failure. Tell your doctor right away if you develop symptoms of heart failure, such as shortness of breath, swelling ankles/feet, unusual tiredness, or unusual/sudden unexplained weight gain. Consult your doctor for more details. Itraconazole 100mg can slow down the removal of other medications from your body, which may cause very serious (possibly fatal) side effects to occur. Examples of affected drugs include certain blood thinners (such as ticagrelor), colchicine, certain drugs to treat irregular heartbeat (such disopyramide, dofetilide, dronedarone, quinidine), eplerenone, ergot alkaloids (such as dihydroergotamine, ergotamine, methylergonovine), felodipine, fesoterodine, irinotecan, ivabradine, lurasidone, methadone, midazolam, nisoldipine, pimozide, ranolazine, certain "statin" cholesterol drugs (such as lovastatin, simvastatin), solifenacin, telithromycin, triazolam, among others.
