Posaconazole is from the same comparatively newer generation of antifungals as voriconazole and has also been used successfully against VF. When patients switch drugs, posaconazole has been the one drug change to provide the greatest benefit in the contacts we have received at VFS. It seems to be a big improvement. Many were helped by it and only one person on this did worse with it.

Fluconazole is probably the most common go-to drug for VF. Although posaconazole is often more powerful than fluconazole and with fewer side effects, you will naturally need to discuss these drug options with your doctor to see how they might interact with any other drugs you are taking or specific aspects of your condition. I hope this helps!
