Research has indicated that oral probiotics in conjunction with fluconazole may help in the treatment of yeast vaginitis. It should be safe to take probiotics with fluconazole. However, if at anytime during treatment you experience side effects you should contact the prescribing physician immediately or go to an Urgent Care Center. I wish you well with your health!
