Treating or preventing fungal infections of the mouth and throat.
Clotrimazole troches are an antifungal agent. It kills sensitive fungi by binding to the fungal cell membrane and weakening it. This allows the cell contents to leak out and results in the death of the fungus.
It may also be used to prevent these infections in patients receiving treatments that may weaken the body’s immune system (e.g., chemotherapy). Clotrimazole is known as an azole antifungal agent. It works by stopping the growth of fungus.
