Mycelex (clotrimazole) is an antifungal medication used to treat and prevent yeast infections of the mouth and throat. Mycelex is available in generic form. Common side effects of Mycelex include:
- mild itching, or
- an unpleasant sensation in the mouth.
A very serious allergic reaction to Mycelex is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if you have rash, itching, swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.
Mycelex Troches are administered only as a lozenge that must be slowly dissolved in the mouth. The recommended dose is one troche five times a day for fourteen consecutive days. Since Mycelex is not absorbed by your body, drug interactions are not expected. Talk to your doctor before taking any other prescription or over-the-counter medicines. During pregnancy, Mycelex should be used only when prescribed. It is not known whether this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
