Fluconazole, also known as Diflucan, is a anti-fungal medication used for the treatment of yeast infections. Yeast infections, such as thrush, are caused by the candida fungus. Symptoms include itching and irritation of the genitals. For severe scrotal yeast infections not responding to topical therapy (such as nystatin cream or clotrimazole cream), doctors may prescribe oral fluconazole.
Yeast infections are a common condition caused by the candida fungus. Common symptoms in men include pain, itching, redness and irritation around the genitals, scrotum and surrounding skin. A yeast infection occurs when the candida fungus, that normally lives in the gut, proliferates too quickly. Many people have the fungus on their body, but it doesn't cause any issues. However, antibiotics, stress, excessive moisture and other factors can encourage the fungus to grow, causing a yeast infection.
The active ingredient in Fluconazole is 150mg fluconazole, an anti-fungal agent.
The following ingredients are also found in Fluconazole: microcrystalline cellulose, dibasic calcium phosphate anhydrous, povidone, croscarmellose sodium, FD&C Red No. 40 aluminum lake dye, and magnesium stearate.
Please note, inactive ingredients may vary between different generic manufacturers.
For yeast infections affecting the genitals, Fluconazole is taken as a single one-off dose of 150mg. Within a few days, the infection should start to respond to the Fluconazole treatment. You should always take Fluconazole as directed by your doctor.
For yeast infections, Fluconazole is taken as a single dose of 150mg tablets. You can take the tablets with water, to make it easier to swallow. You do not need to take Fluconazole with or without food. You should always take Fluconazole as instructed by the prescribing physician.
Fluconazole 150mg for yeast infections is not recommended for people who have severe symptoms, a history of complicated fungal infections, immunosuppression or poorly controlled diabetes. If any of these apply, you should ensure that your doctor is informed as you may require a stronger or more long-term treatment.
