Nurse practitioner prescribed azithromycin and diflucan (fluconazole) for yeast infection. Y this combo?

Yeast Infection: Generally, Diflucan (fluconazole) is the drug of choice for a yeast infection.

Diagnosed with bacterial vaginitis and yeast infection 7daysago. Took Diflucan (fluconazole) and intravaginal AB. White clumps continue and itching back. Monistat3?

Diagnosed with bacterial vaginitis and yeast infection 7daysago. Took Diflucan (fluconazole) and intravaginal AB. White clumps continue and itching back. Monistat3?

Return to doctor: Hmmm... something doesn't compute. Bacterial vaginosis is not effectively treated with intravaginal antibiotics; it requires antibiotic by mouth (usually metronidazole). Fluconazole (Diflucan) usually works well for yeast, but miconazole (Monistat) is very similar and might not help if fluconazole did not. Return to be rechecked by the doctor or clinic where you were diagnosed and treated. ...Read more

STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia or trichomonas may be more likely and also can cause UTI-like symptoms. Recheck with the doctor or clinic where you are being treated. Good luck! ...Read more
