I was/am colonized with aspergillus and was treated with IV Vfend before and after a double lung transplant. Experienced terrifying hallucinations for days both times, although docs suspected the pain medication was potentiating this effect. Am getting ready to start again, 200mg twice daily oral, and I am not looking forward to it. Horrible drug but sadly there are few options.

Comment:

After taking it for a couple months I went to 1 pill a day and had minimal side effects. When I went off it, my aspergillosis came back and it took a long time to work again. It takes a couple months to start working and a couple months to get out of your system when yo ... Show Full Comment
