AMPHOTERICIN

Written by

A highly toxic, polygenic antifungal drug that must be given only under close medical supervision and for severe systemic fungal infections (see FUNGAL AND YEAST INFECTIONS). It is not absorbed from the gut so is normally given parenterally (see PARENTERAL). Oral and intestinal candidiasis (see CANDIDA) can, however, be treated with amphotericin tablets.
