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
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 affect 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
I am currently suffering from a bad fungal infection following a high dose of antibiotics. On Diflucan (fluconazole) (200mg) — do I need to change my diet as well?
2 diflucan (fluconazole) pills for yeast I took them one day apart I'm still taking antibiotics for an 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

Candida glabrata?: Most yeast vulvovaginitis is caused by Candida albicans, which almost always responds to fluconazole (Diflucan) and related drugs. But a minority of cases are due to C. glabrata, which is resistant. Treatments that often work include vaginal creams or oral forms of itraconazole (Sporanox®), flucytosine (Ancobon®), or nystatin (several brands). Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Sinusitis: Almost all the time you do not need antibiotics for "sinusitis" because it's viral. However, most people that have made the effort to come to an office feel somewhat disappointed if they leave the office without a prescription for an antibiotic. Which, in you case caused, as it usually does, a subsequent "yeast infection" Next time you get a 'cold' tough it and all the things that Mom to. ...Read more
