Additional Information
  • M​iconazole is systemically absorbed when administered topically, and exhibits inhibitory action on hepatic enzymes responsible for the metabolism of many drugs1.  A clinically significant drug interaction exists between miconazole and warfarin, resulting in increased anticoagulant effects - INR should be closely monitored.  Please check with pharmacy for advice on potential drug interactions.
