|Brand Name||CASFUNG 50|
Casfung 50mg injection contains the active ingredient caspofungin, which belongs to a group of medications called antifungal agents. It is used to treat serious fungal infections, such as invasive aspergillosis, candidemia, and esophageal candidiasis.
Caspofungin works by inhibiting the production of a fungal cell wall component called beta-glucan, which is essential for fungal growth and survival. This helps to slow or stop the growth of the fungus and can lead to the eradication of the infection.
Casfung 50mg injection is typically given as an intravenous infusion, which means it is injected directly into a vein over a period of 1 hour. The dosage and treatment duration will depend on the patient's condition and medical history, and should be determined by a healthcare professional.
Common side effects of Casfung may include fever, chills, headache, rash, and abdominal pain. In rare cases, Casfung can cause more serious side effects, such as liver damage or allergic reactions. Patients should report any unusual symptoms to their doctor immediately.
