Can You Take Diflucan While On Antibiotics
Was just prescribed a cephalosporin antibiotic along with diflucan (fluconazole). When is the best time to take the diflucan (fluconazole) tab? Day 1 of the antibiotics? Thanks!
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 10 days and got a yeast infection. They gave me 3 diflucan pills to clear it up. Is it normal if it takes 3 pills sometimes?
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
Taking amoxicillin for yeast infection, can I take diflucan (fluconazole) while I still am taking antibiotics?
Started Keflex 500mg TID Sunday for UTI or BV. Still a white discharge with a slight fishy smell. Take diflucan (fluconazole) now or wait till antibiotic is done?
Have possible candida overgrowth from taking low dose antibiotics for years. Have taken probiotics as well, but getting skin eruptions from them. I am allergic to diflucan, (fluconazole) what can I take?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could I take diflucan (fluconazole) which is for yeast infections while on the z pack which is the antibiotic?

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.

Starting Diflucan 200mg daily for 4 weeks. Also take Prozac. Worried about QT interaction. Getting different answers. I should be ok? Heart is healthy, and I have to take Diflucan for candida in esophagus from inhalers and anitbiotics. Just worried.
Monitor with EKGs: To help make a more educated decision, request an EKG from your physician to look at your baseline QT/QTc interval first. If it is normal, then, make an informed decision with your physician. If you decide to proceed with both medications, you could repeat the EKG after 4-7 days to make sure that the QT/QTc isn't becoming more prolonged. ...Read more
I took diflucan (fluconazole) for 14 days. Thrush from antibiotics. How long does it stay in your system after last dosage?
~6 days: Half-life of fluconazole is 30hrs (range 20-50hrs). Check out http://www. Drugs. Com/pro/diflucan.html. Medications are considered to be out of body after 5 half-lives or in this case 150hrs or 6+days, assuming 30hrs. Of course, this is affected by your kidney function, in which it could stay in your body longer or be broken down more quickly in less time. Most important is resolving infection ...Read more
