Eraxis, otherwise known as anidulafungin, is an antifungal antibiotic that is used to treat serious fungal infections. It has been specifically marketed towards sufferers of Candidiasis but may be used to treat other fungal infections.
Eraxis has been found to affect liver function in some patients, so anyone with liver disease, or any other liver disorder, should let their doctor know. This is a drug that is given intravenously, so you will not be able to find it in your pharmacy.
How does Eraxis work?
Eraxis works by disrupting the enzyme synthesis pathways in the fungal cells. It does this without affecting human tissues.
How do you take Eraxis?
Eraxis is given intravenously by your healthcare professional. You will not be able to find it in your pharmacy. Your healthcare provider may decide that you are capable of injecting yourself with Eraxis at home. If this is the case, be sure to follow all instructions carefully, use disposable needles, and call your doctor for help if you need.
Who should not take Eraxis?
If you have any conditions of the liver, let your doctor know. Women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant should also avoid Eraxis.
Eraxis Side Effects
There are some light side effects associated with Eraxis, including diarrhea, headaches and nausea. However, more serious side effects should be reported immediately to your doctor. These can include an allergic reaction (lower blood pressure, rashes, itching, shortness of breath).
