Diflucan And Flagyl
Safe but not helpful: It wouldn't hurt to take these things together, but it probably won't help either. Azo Yeast® is a natural product that has no proven benefit either to prevent or treat yeast infections. If you think you may have a yeast infection, check with the clinic or doctor who prescribed the antibiotics. ...Read more

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. The Azithromycin was probably prescribed for another infection you might be fighting - such as bronchitis. With this drug, it is not uncommon to develop a yeast infection because of the bacteriocidal effects on your genitsl flora, so Diflucan (fluconazole) was prescribed to prevent a yeast infection from occurring. ...Read more

Many Infections: Doxycycline and Flagyl (metronidazole) are antibiotics which can be used in the treatment of many different infections, most often caused by bacteria and/or protozoa. Metronidazole is particularly useful in the treatment of infections which may include anaerobics (live in environments without good oxygen supply).

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
Why are Flagyl and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) taken together? Any problem just taking Flagyl without Cipro (ciprofloxacin)?
Take both of them: There are several infections that might require treatment with both drugs, and taking only one of them could be dangerous. Your doctor wouldn't have prescribed both of them without good reason. Follow his or her advice. If you need more information about the reasons, contact the doctor's office. ...Read more
Not both: Metronidazole will often cure BV (bacterial vaginosis). It is ineffective against chlamydia. For this you will need a different antibiotic, such as azithromycin, doxycycline, eryhromycin, or uncommonly Levofloxacin and ofloxacin. See your clinician for an appropriate prescription. ...Read more
Can clindamycin vaginal cream and flagyl orally taken, be used together for bv and pid. should I take diflucan as precaution to yeast side effect?
Anti-fungal: I recommend that all of my female patients when taken any antibiotic be given a prescription for Diflucan. Antibiotics which killed a normal flora both in the mouth and in the vaginal region may predispose patients to developing yeast infections. I recommend that you always asks for generic Diflucan and have this on hand in case it is needed. ...Read more
