What is Plusgin?

Plusgin is a triazole medicine used to treat fungal infections. It is effective against a broad spectrum of fungi including:

In New Zealand, Plusgin is available as 50 mg, 150 mg and 200 mg capsules on prescription (DiflucanĀ®). There is also a 2 mg/ml injection for intravenous use. In New Zealand, the Pharmaceutical Schedule subs >over the counter .

Plusgin binds to the fungal p450 enzymes and stops the cells making ergosterol, the main component of the cell wall.

Plusgin is well absorbed orally with or without food. It is widely distributed in body tissues. It takes 22 to 30 hours for half of the medication to be cleared from the bloodstream and may take several days of continuous treatment to reach a steady concentration. The drug is eliminated unchanged in the urine so doses should be reduced if there is kidney disease.

Drug interactions with Plusgin

Unfortunately, Plusgin can interact with other medications.

  • Plusgin should not be taken with the HMG Co-A reductase inhibitor simvastatin, and the dose of atorvastatin should be reduced. Pravastatin and rosuvastatin are preferable. Toxicity results in muscle pain and weakness, which may be serious.

Plusgin may increase the concentration of these drugs and enhance their effect:

  • Warfarin
  • Antidiabetic sulphonylurea medication (tolbutamide, glibenclamide, gliclazide, glipizide.
  • Phenytoin
  • Theophylline
  • Ciclosporin
  • Celecoxib

Rifampicin may slightly decrease the concentration of Plusgin.

Plusgin is not thought to interact with the oral contraceptive pill.

Celecoxib

During concomitant treatment with Plusgin (200 mg daily) and celecoxib (200 mg), the celecoxib Cmax and AUC increased by 68% and 134%, respectively. Half of the celecoxib dose may be necessary when combined with Plusgin.

Which drugs or supplements interact with Diflucan (Plusgin)?

  • Hydrochlorothiazide increases the blood concentration of Plusgin by 40%. However, dosage modification is not recommended when both drugs are combined.
  • Rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane, Rifadin, Rifater, Rifamate) reduces the blood concentration of oral Plusgin, probably by increasing the elimination of Plusgin in the liver; therefore, reducing the effectiveness of Plusgin.
  • Plusgin may increase the concentration of warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven) in blood by reducing the elimination of warfarin. Therefore, the effect of warfarin may increase, leading to an increased tendency to bleed.
  • phenytoin (Dilantin),
  • cyclosporine,
  • zidovudine (Retrovir),
  • saquinavir (Invirase),
  • theophylline (Theo-Dur, Respbid, Slo-Bid, Theo-24, Theolair, Uniphyl, Slo-Phyllin),
