Not really: Equally effective regardless of time of day. Meals should not effect efficacy. Same for Keflex (or other cephalosporins), although it may be slightly less irritating (if you are having any belly discomfort) if taken with meals. ...Read more

On antibiotics for 15 days. Treated for a yeast infection with diflucan (fluconazole). Infection may be back, and I have leftover difl. Ok to take more difl?

Probably ok: Taking broad spectrum antibiotics often results in yeast infection as the normal flora is wiped out. Taking Diflucan (fluconazole) will treat the yeast infection but if it wasn't at the end of therapy probiotics should be used to re-culture the system. Cultured yogurt works or a good probiotic (lactobacillus acidophyllis) will help to prevent recurring yeast infections and could be used with antibiotic therapy. ...Read more

2 diflucan (fluconazole) pills for yeast I took them one day apart I'm still taking antibiotics for a uti idk if I was suppose to take the yeast pills a week apart?

Varies: One current common regimen for Diflucan (fluconazole) when treating a vaginal yeast infection is to take one pill every other day for 3 days - that works about 98% of the time. Two pills one day apart will still work over 80% of the time. Even one pill works about 70% of the time. If you are still taking antibiotics, you may need to repeat the Diflucan (fluconazole) after completing the course of antibiotics. ...Read more

Starting Diflucan 200mg/day for 4 weeks for candida in esophagus. From asthma meds and antibiotics. I take Prozac. Will it cause QT problems? Healthy.

Starting Diflucan 200mg/day for 4 weeks for candida in esophagus. From asthma meds and antibiotics. I take Prozac. Will it cause QT problems? Healthy.

Over medicated?: That is a lot of problems and meds for a 28 year old man. Seems like you have a rough life. Need to solve the environment you are living in. I hope no cats at home as this would make asthma worse. No smoking please. You can always have an ekg done midway or if having new symptoms to check for QT prolongation but this would be rare. ...Read more
