Griseofulvin - Overview
Griseofulvin, marketed under the brand name Gris-PEG and others, is a medication used in the treatment of various types of fungal infections, including ringworm. People who need a griseofulvin micro prescription can connect with a medical provider using Push Health who can prescribe griseofulvin microsize when appropriate to do so.
What Is Griseofulvin Used For?
Griseofulvin, like ketoconazole, is used in treating several types of ringworm infections, including certain cases of tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea capitis and tinea pedis, when the causative organism is thought to be caused by a type of fungus susceptible to griseofulvin. Griseofulvin's mechanism of action is not fully understood although it is thought to inhibit the growth of fungi by somehow interfering with replication. Specifically, griseofulvin may block the synthesis of nucleic acids, impair mitosis and binding to fungal microtubules.
Griseofulvin - Dose and Cost
As Gris-PEG, griseofulvin tablets are available as griseofulvin 125 mg tablets and griseofulvin 250 mg tablets. These elliptical-shaped griseofulvin tablets are white in color. For treating fungal infections such as tinea capitis or tinea cruris in adults, many providers will use a regimen of griseofulvin 375 mg per day (in one dose or broken up into multiple doses) although the griseofulvin dosing may be changed depending on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider and the needs of the patient. Griseofulvin is sometimes prescribed to be given over the period of several weeks. Griseofulvin tablets are moderately expensive, costing almost $3 per griseofulvin 500 mg tablet. Griseofulvin coupons can sometimes be found online and some insurance plans and copay cards may also help with paying any out-of-pocket costs associated with a griseofulvin prescription. Gris-PEG (griseofulvin microsize) tablets should generally be stored between 15° C and 30° C.
Can I Buy Griseofulvin Online?
Griseofulvin requires a prescription from a licensed medical provider before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. As a result, griseofulvin OTC is not available and one cannot simply buy griseofulvin online. Fortunately, people who might need a griseofulvin prescription and are having trouble getting the medication can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe griseofulvin when appropriate to do so.
Griseofulvin - Side Effects
Griseofulvin can cause side effects when used, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and fatigue. Blood dyscrasias have also been reported after griseofulvin use. Griseofulvin can cause liver toxicity and elevations in transaminases. Griseofulvin and alcohol use should be avoided. Anyone with a hypersensitivity or allergy to griseofulvin or antifungal medications should not use griseofulvin. Before using griseofulvin, it is important to discuss risks and concerns with a qualified medical professional.
