Diflucan is the brand name of the generic drug Fluconazole. Diflucan is a prescription drug (not available over-the-counter) that comes as a tablet or suspension (liquid) to be taken orally. It is also available as an injectable medicine but, in this form, can only be administered by a healthcare professional.
Diflucan is an antifungal medicine belonging to the class of drugs called triazole antifungals. It is used to prevent or treat a wide variety of infections caused by fungus in several parts of the body, including the mouth, genital area, bladder, lungs, throat, and blood.
Most commonly, Diflucan is used to treat candidiasis and other vaginal and mouth yeast infections. In some cases, Fluconazole can be used to treat some kinds of meningitis and prevent recurring fungal infections in high-risk people with a weakened immune system, such as those with HIV.
For milder infections, Diflucan is delivered as a single-dose treatment, but patients experiencing persistent symptoms might take three doses or more as instructed by their healthcare provider.
What is Diflucan Prescribed For?
Diflucan might be prescribed to treat a wide range of fungal infections (not bacterial infections like Chlamydia). Some of the most common diagnoses requiring Diflucan include:
- Candidiasis, or vaginal infections caused by the Candida fungus
- Oropharyngeal Candidiasis, also known as oral thrush, in men and women
- Candidiasis caused by Candida albicans, which leads to oral infections like periodontal disease (gum infection).
- Urinary tract infection (UTI) and yeast infections caused by Candida
- Candida-related bloodstream infections
- Some types of meningitis (brain infections), such as the one caused by the Cryptococcus fungus
In some cases, Diflucan might be prescribed to prevent recurring fungal infections in individuals who are at risk or have a weakened immune system, such as patients with HIV, bone marrow transplant, or chronic vaginal thrush.
How Does Diflucan Work?
Diflucan, which acts similarly to other triazole antifungal medicines within the same classification, works by binding with the fungal cytochrome P-450, which prevents the conversion between lanosterol to ergosterol and disrupts fungal membrane.
This mechanism prevents the fungus causing the infection from reproducing. In turn, this slows the growth of harmful fungi, making it easier for the body’s immune system to fight infection or prevent recurring conditions.
What Are The Side Effects of Diflucan?
While this medicine is safe for most and unlikely to cause severe side effects, if you are looking to get Diflucan online, it is important to know what to expect.
Some of the most common side effects (reported by more than 1 in 100 people) are nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, headache, and vomiting. These symptoms should disappear within a few hours or days after taking Diflucan – you should see your healthcare provider if they intensify or persist.
Rarer and more serious side effects reported by less than 1 in 100 people include yellowing of the skin and eyes, dark urine, pale feces, irregular heartbeat, and bruising easily (which might be a symptom of blood disorders). You should see your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.
While uncommon, it is also possible to have a severe allergic reaction to Diflucan.
Make sure to always read the Patient Information Leaflet before taking Diflucan or other antifungal drugs.
Frequently Asked Questions About Diflucan (Fluconazole)
How to Take Diflucan?
Diflucan is usually taken once daily, with or without food. However, dosages and frequency of treatment will be specified by your doctor according to factors like your age, severity, and type of your infection, your medical history, reaction to the first dose, and other medications you are taking.
What to Avoid While Taking Diflucan?
Diflucan is usually safe, but there are some precautions to take during treatment, including:
- Tell your doctor about other medications you are taking as Diflucan might interact with them
- Diflucan can make you dizzy and, while it does not interact with alcohol, drinking while under treatment can worsen the symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea and cause fainting.
- Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, as Diflucan might cause harm to unborn babies.
- Talk to a doctor before taking Diflucan if you suffer from liver or kidney disease
- Avoid taking Diflucan if you are allergic to other antifungal drugs
