Fluconazole!: A great antifungual drug. Yes, liver issues are commonly listed (but very uncommon) as a side effect and its effects on the metabolism of other drugs (increasing levels of statins, viagra, (sildenafil) cialis), but they are far more less likely to have these issues compared with other systemic antifungals. I've used it in hundreds of patients without seeing a single major problem.
