Generic Name: Stalevo

What is Stalevo?

The clinical relevance of these findings to the oral formulations is unknown. Itraconazole has been shown to have a negative inotropic effect and Sporanox Capsules has been associated with reports of congestive heart failure.

Heart failure was more frequently reported among spontaneous reports of 400 mg total daily dose than among those of lower total daily doses, suggesting that the risk of heart failure might increase with the total daily dose of itraconazole.

Sporanox should not be used in patients with congestive heart failure or with a history of congestive heart failure unless the benefit clearly outweighs the risk. Therefore, caution should be used when co-administering itraconazole and calcium channel blockers due to an increased risk of CHF see Section 4.

Hepatic effectsVery rare cases of serious hepatotoxicity, including some cases of fatal acute liver failure, have occurred with the use of Sporanox Capsules. Some patients had no obvious risk factors for liver disease.

Some of these cases were observed within the first month of treatment, including some within the first week. Liver function monitoring should be considered in patients receiving Sporanox Capsules treatment.
