Miconazole, a synthetic imidazole derivative, possesses an antifungal activity against the common dermatophytes and yeasts as well as an antibacterial activity against certain gram-positive bacilli and cocci. Miconazole selectively blocks ergosterol synthesis by inhibiting demethylation of lanosterol and thereby cause fungal cell death.

Miconazole can inhibit the metabolism of medicines metabolised by cytochrome 3A4 and 2C9 enzyme systems. This can result in an increase and/or prolongation of the effects, including side effects. Miconazole Oral Gel should not be used during treatment with the following drugs: Terfenadine, astemizole, mizolastine, cisapride, triazolam, oral midazolam, dofetilide, quinidine, pimozide, CYP3A4 metabolised HMGCoA reductase inhibitors such as simvastatin and lovastatin.
Use in pregnancy and lactation:
Although there is no evidence that miconazole is embryotoxic or teratogenic in animals, potential hazards of prescribing these medicines during pregnancy should always be weighed against the expected therapeutic benefits.There are no data available on the excretion of miconazole in human milk; therefore caution should be exercised when breastfeeding women are using Miconazole.
