White homogeneous cream

4. Clinical Particulars 4.1 Therapeutic Indications

For the treatment of athlete's foot.

4.4 Special Warnings And Precautions For Use

Daktarin Aktiv Cream must not come into contact with the eyes.

If a reaction suggesting sensitivity or irritation should occur, the treatment should be discontinued.

4.5 Interaction With Other Medicinal Products And Other Forms Of Interaction

Miconazole administered systemically is known to inhibit CYP3A4/2C9. Due to the limited systemic availability after topical application, clinically relevant interactions are rare. However, in patients on oral anticoagulants, such as warfarin, caution should be exercised and anticoagulant effect should be monitored.

4.6 Pregnancy And Lactation


In animals, miconazole nitrate has shown no teratogenic effects but is foetotoxic at high oral doses. Only small amounts of miconazole nitrate are absorbed following topical administration. However, as with other imidazoles, miconazole nitrate should be used with caution during pregnancy.


Topically applied miconazole is minimally absorbed into the systemic circulation, and it is not known whether miconazole is excreted in human breast milk. Caution should be exercised when using topically applied miconazole products during lactation.

4.7 Effects On Ability To Drive And Use Machines

Not applicable.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

Pharmacotherapeutic classification: (Antifungals for dermatological/topical use; imidazole derivative) ATC code: D01A C02.

Miconazole is an imidazole antifungal agent and may act by interfering with the permeability of the fungal cell membrane. It possesses a wide antifungal spectrum and has some antibacterial activity.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Absorption: There is little absorption through skin or mucous membranes when miconazole nitrate is applied topically.

Distribution: Absorbed miconazole is bound to plasma proteins (88.2%) and red blood cells (10.6%).

Metabolism and Excretion: The small amount of miconazole that is absorbed is eliminated predominantly in faeces as both unchanged drug and metabolites.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

Preclinical data reveal no special hazard for humans based on conventional studies of local irritation, single and repeated dose toxicity, genotoxicity, and toxicity to reproduction.
