Other medical problems

The presence of other medical problems may affect the use of caspofungin. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any other medical problems, especially:

  • Liver disease, moderate to severe (eg, hepatitis, liver failure)—Use with caution. Effects may be increased because of slower removal of the medicine from the body.

Proper use of caspofungin

A nurse or other trained health professional will give you caspofungin. It is given through a needle placed into one of your veins. The medicine must be injected slowly, so the needle will have to remain in place for about 1 hour for 7 to 14 days.

Precautions while using caspofungin

It is very important that your doctor check the progress of you or your child while you are taking caspofungin to make sure the medicine is working properly. Blood tests may be needed to check for unwanted effects.

Check with your doctor right away if you or your child have pain or tenderness in the upper stomach, dark urine, pale stools, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, or yellow skin or eyes. These could be symptoms of a serious liver problem.

Caspofungin may cause a serious type of allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. Call your doctor right away if you or your child have a rash, itching, hoarseness, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing, or any swelling of your hands, face, or mouth after receiving caspofungin.

Serious skin reactions can occur with caspofungin. Check with your doctor right away if you have blistering, peeling, or loosening of the skin, red skin lesions, severe acne or a skin rash, sores or ulcers on the skin, or fever or chills with caspofungin.
