About Fluconazole

What does it do?

Thrush is a fungal infection, commonly caused by a type of yeast called candida. Although candida is naturally present in the body, an imbalance can trigger thrush symptoms. Fluconazole 150mg (also know as Diflucan and other brand names) kills certain types of fungi and restores your body's natural balance.

Taking Fluconazole for the first time

Fluconazole treatment for thrush is simple – just one capsule to be swallowed with a glass of water. You can take this medicine at any time of day, with or without a meal.

How effective is it?

Women taking Fluconazole should see an improvement within a few days. Some women will notice improvement in 24 hours.

For men, the condition can take a little longer to clear up. The symptoms should clear up within a few days, although this can take up to a week.

If your condition hasn't cleared up within one week, you should consult a doctor.

Cautions when using Fluconazole

Thrush is an infection which can occur without sexual contact, so it is not a sexually transmitted disease. However, the infection can be passed on during sex, so it is recommended that you should not have sex until the infection has cleared up.

If you regularly suffer from thrush, then it's advisable that both you and your partner have thrush treatment at the same time.

Taking too much can make you unwell, so contact your doctor or nearest hospital immediately if you take more than you should.

Side effects of Fluconazole

As with any medicine, there are side effects. Although a serious allergic reaction to Fluconazole is rare. Common side effects (occurring in one in ten patients) include nausea, stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, wind, rash and headache. However, these side effects are usually mild and don't tend to last long. If symptoms persist, or are particularly severe, contact your doctor.

Less common side effects include:

  • Sudden wheezing, difficulty in breathing or tightness in chest
  • Swelling of eyelids, face or lips
  • Itching all over the body, reddening of the skin, or itchy red spots
  • Skin rash
  • Severe skin reactions such as a rash that causes blistering (this can affect the mouth and tongue)
  • If you are an AIDS patient you are more likely to get severe skin reactions to drugs including Fluconazole

Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms, or if you experience any other severe reaction to this medicine. A full list of side effects is available on the patient information leaflet.

When not to take Fluconazole

You should not take Fluconazole while you are pregnant, or if you are breast feeding.

Do not take Fluconazole if you've ever had an allergic reaction to any of its ingredients or any other medicines which you have taken to treat a fungal infection.

Also, do not take Fluconazole if you are taking terfenadine (an antihistamine for allergies) or cisapride (used for stomach upsets).

Tell your doctor before taking Fluconazole if:

  • Are aged under 16 years
  • Have liver or kidney problems
  • Suffer from heart disease, including heart rhythm problems
  • Have abnormal levels of potassium, calcium or magnesium in your blood

Also, tell your doctor about any other medicines you are taking, or have recently taken before taking Fluconazole.
