What is Daktarin Oral Gel?

Daktarin Oral Gel is used to treat fungal infections in the throat and mouth, as well as infections of the stomach and intestines. The gel contains the active ingredient miconazole, an antifungal medicine. At HealthExpress, we currently sell Daktarin Oral Gel for oral thrush.

Treatment should be continued for seven days after your symptoms have cleared. This helps to prevent the infection from recurring by ensuring it has been fully treated.

How does Daktarin Oral Gel work?

Daktarin Oral Gel contains the active ingredient miconazole. This is a type of medicine known as an antifungal. Miconazole kills off yeasts and fungi by making holes in their cell membranes.

Fungi and yeasts rely on their cell membranes for survival. These membranes are responsible from keeping the contents of the cells intact while preventing unwanted substances from gaining access to the cells. When miconazole makes holes in these cell membranes, constituents essential for cell survival leak out, killing the fungi and clearing the infection.

Symptoms of oral thrush can include: redness in the throat and mouth, cracks at the mouth's corners, an unpleasant taste/loss of taste in the mouth and white patches or plaques in the mouth. You should see your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms as they may prescribe you Daktarin Oral Gel.

If you have experienced oral thrush before, you can normally buy Daktarin Oral Gel to treat a recurrence online or over the counter, without a prescription from your doctor. If symptoms persist despite treatment with this medicine, you should seek medical advice.

Even once symptoms have cleared, you must continue using the gel for seven days, to prevent the infection from recurring.

How to use Daktarin Oral Gel

  • You should use Daktarin Oral Gel four times a day, leaving regular intervals between doses
  • You should follow instructions from your pharmacist or doctor concerning how much gel to use
  • You should use this medicine after eating
  • For infections in the mouth, apply the gel to the affected area(s) using a clean finger and hold the gel in the mouth for as long as you can before it's swallowed
  • For mouth, throat and gut infections, take the measured amount of gel from a clean spoon and hold it in your mouth as long as you can before swallowing
  • When administering Daktarin Oral Gel to children, ensure you don't place the gel at the back of the throat as this can lead to choking as the gel is sticky
  • If you wear false teeth and are taking Daktarin Oral Gel for oral thrush, brush the gel into your dentures after removing them at night to kill fungus on the dentures
  • If you forget to take a dose of this medicine, leave the missed dose and take your next dose when it is due as normal – don't take a double dose to make up for missing a dose

What dosages are available for Daktarin Oral Gel?

There is only one dosage available for Daktarin Oral Gel. Each gram of gel contains 20mg of miconazole. The gel is only available on prescription from your doctor and comes in a 15g or 80g tube.

What are the side effects of Daktarin Oral Gel?

Not everyone who uses Daktarin Oral Gel will experience side effects as medicines can affect different people differently.

The following side effects have been commonly reported: regurgitating the gel; nausea and vomiting; discomfort in the mouth; and, dry mouth. Less common side effects include: a change in your sense of taste; diarrhoea; a painful mouth; and, hepatitis (inflammation of the liver).

If you experience any side effects which cause you concern you should consult your doctor or pharmacist.

What are the precautions/interactions of Daktarin Oral Gel?

You should always tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any other medications, including over-the-counter products and herbal remedies. You must not use Daktarin Oral Gel if you are taking any of the following medicines as miconazole can reduce the way the body breaks down these medicines and increase the risk of side effects:

  • astemizole
  • cisapride
  • ergot alkaloids
  • oral midazolam
  • mizolastine
  • pimozide
  • quetiapine
  • quinidine
  • sertindole
  • statins (for lowering cholesterol), with the exception of pravastatin. If your doctor prescribes you Daktarin Oral Gel despite you taking a station, tell your doctor if you experience weakness, tenderness, dark-coloured urine or unusual muscle pain.
  • terfenadine
  • triazolam
  • warfarin – if you are taking Daktarin Oral Gel in combination with warfarin, your doctor may check your blood clotting time (INR) after treatment has started

Miconazole can increase the levels of these medicines in the blood that has the potential to increase the risk of side effects:

  • benzodiazepines (e.g. alprazolam)
  • buspirone
  • busulfan
  • calcium-channel blockers
  • carbamazepine
  • ciclosporin
  • cilostazol
  • disopyramide
  • fosphenytoin
  • nateglinide
  • phenytoin - it is advisable to monitor miconazole and phenytoin levels, if these two drugs are used concomitantly
  • protease inhibitors for HIV infection
  • ranolazine
  • reboxetine
  • rifabutin
  • sirolimus
  • sulphonyl urease (used in diabetes, for example, gliclazide and tolbutamide)
  • tacrolimus

You should not use Daktarin Oral Gel if you have liver problems or porphyrias (rare hereditary blood disorders).

Daktarin Oral Gel is suitable for use in adults, children and infants aged four months and over. It should not be used in children younger than four months or in children whose swallowing reflex has not developed (for example, premature babies).

Pregnant women should avoid using Daktarin Oral Gel and other products containing miconazole wherever possible. You should only use this medicine while pregnant if your doctor considers it essential and you should always consult your doctor first for advice.

Because it is unclear whether miconazole is secreted in breast milk, breastfeeding mothers are advised to avoid using Daktarin Oral Gel. Caution should be taken if your doctor prescribes you this medicine while you are breastfeeding.

If you are allergic to miconazole or any of the other ingredients in Daktarin Oral Gel, you should not take this medicine. If you do take it and you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking the medicine immediately and consult your doctor or pharmacist.
