Why do Doctors not always prescribe oral antifungal medications for certain people?

Oral anti-fungal medication is typically taken over a period of several months. They are only prescribed if a doctor or dermatologist is satisfied there is no risk of the drugs causing interactions with any other medications you might be taking.

In addition your doctor will ensure there is no existing impairment of your liver or kidneys, or history of certain heart problems such as abnormal heart rhythms or congestive heart failure. Doctors need to be satisfied on these matters because anti-fungal oral medications can cause serious interactions with other drugs and can lead in rare cases to serious liver and heart complications.
