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

Probably ok: Taking broad spectrum antibiotics often results in yeast infection as the normal flora is wiped out. Taking Diflucan 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

Varies: One current common regimen for Diflucan 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 after completing the course of antibiotics. ...Read more

Can i take amoxicillian antibotic with diflucan?

DrugDrug interaction: Always tell your prescribing physician & dispensing pharmacist everything you're taking. Clarify how new drug impacts your current regimen. So http://www.Drugs.Com/interactions-check.Php?Drug_list=187-0, 1096-630 shows no interaction between these two drugs. However, you can't prevent yeast infection from antibiotic by taking diflucan. You need to wait until after finished antibiotic first to see. ...Read more
