A 26-year-old female asked:

is hair loss with fluconazole only associated with long term use, as opposed to a single dosage? could a single dosage (150 mg) cause hair loss?

Anything is possible: but likelihood of a single dose causing an issue is very low. Consider other supplements that u may take or thyroid dysfunction? And the interaction of fluconazole with other meds-supplements.
