Blocks important enz: Fluconazole blocks the function of a particular enzyme essential for the organism (candida in this case) to make steroids that are important for the integrity of its membranes. In short, it just doesn't let the fungus live. This therapy can take as much as 4 to 6 weeks, depending on your particular infection.
