Fluconazole, sold under the brand name Diflucan, is a medication used to treat vulvovaginal yeast infections, which is an infection by a fungus called “candida” that causes itching and irritation of the genitals.
Yeast infections are very common. Classic symptoms include itching of the vulva (the most common symptom), pain, redness or irritation of the vulva or vagina, pain with urination, pain during sex, and abnormal vaginal discharge. The fungus that causes yeast infections normally lives in the vagina and in the gut. Many people have the fungus but it does not cause any problems. Sometimes, antibiotics, stress or other factors can make the fungus grow more than it should, and cause a yeast infection. Fluconazole works to treat yeast infections by stopping the fungus from growing.
Fluconazole is an antifungal medication. It works by inhibiting fungus from reproducing.
The active ingredient in Fluconazole is the anti-fungal agent, Fluconazole at a concentration of 150mg.
Fluconazole also contains the following inactive ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, dibasic calcium phosphate anhydrous, povidone, croscarmellose sodium, FD&C Red No. 40 aluminum lake dye, and magnesium stearate. Inactive ingredients may vary between manufacturers.
Always take Fluconazole exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
To treat vaginal yeast infection, Fluconazole is given as a single one-time dose of 150mg. This is because one tablet will have high concentrations in the vaginal fluids for at least 3 days after taking it. There is no dose adjustment for kidney disease for the single dose.
The infection should respond to treatment within a few days.
If you are pregnant, you should not take oral fluconazole.
Always take Fluconazole as prescribed by your doctor. To treat vaginal yeast infections, it is given as a one time single dose of 150mg tablets. It does not have to be taken with or without food.
If you have severe symptoms, history of complicated fungal infections, poorly controlled diabetes, or immunosuppression you should not take Fluconazole 150mg to treat yeast infections. You may require stronger or prolonged treatment.
Do not take if pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Yeast infections in pregnancy are treated differently.
Fluconazole is generally well-tolerated, but some people may experience headache (13%), dizziness, nausea (7%), abdominal pain (6%), diarrhea (1%), and abnormal taste in mouth (1%).
