There's alot of medications you can't take along with an antifungal (tylenol, stomach meds, some antibiotics - it's a long list), you can't drink on an antifungal (because you'll get sicker than you ever dreamed possible) and they can cause liver damage. Along with the regular list o' side effects most people never have anyway: headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, etc.

Ketoconazole (Brand name Nizoral) comes in pill form, cream or OTC shampoo. [url]http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/medmaster/a682816.html[/url]

Fluconazole (Brand name Diflucan)

You don't have to take the pills forever so if you don't mind not drinking for a week or two and you're not on a bunch of other meds already, including OTC drugs like tylenol, the pills may work out just fine for you.
