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

On antibiotics for 15 days. Treated for a yeast infection with diflucan. 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 will treat the yeast infection but if it wasn't at the end of therapy probiotics should be used to re-culture the system.

2 diflucan 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?

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
