Fluconazole use: Yes - you definitely need to be monitored if you are on long term anti fungal therapy - especially at a 'high dose' as you are on. I recommend at least weekly chemistry tests (checking the kidneys) and LIVER TESTS (checking the liver functions). Fluconazole can inflame the liver - and your doctor should be helping keep track of these things. Also, I recommend you see an ID doc if you have Candida
