Resistant yeast: A few percent of yeast strains are resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan) and other "azole" drugs. Alternate treatments are availabble (e.g. nystatin, flucytosine, caspofungin, boric acid).

Antibiotics are seldom of use. Meclizine is another med which is commonly used but seldom effective. Phenergan (promethazine) will make you sleepy so ...Read more
